Marvin Rosen bagged the top stack after one 10 levels.

After 10 levels of play here on Day 1 of Event #59: $3,000 Omaha Hi-Low, Marvin Rosen finished with 75,300 to post a wide lead over the formidable Brian Rast, who bagged 61,600. Rosen seems to favor Omaha eight-or-better, as five of his eight recorded cashes have come in the game, though they are all in the pot-limit format. The Roslyn, New York, native seeks his first six-figure live score.

The first iteration of this tournament drew a healthy count of 457 entrants, generating a prize pool that will award $286,976 to first place. The field was loaded with big names, some of whom failed to survive the Day 1 grind. Their number included Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, Robert Mizrachi, Ben Yu, Daniel Idema, Maria Ho, Brian Hastings, Tom Schneider, Jason Mercier, and Phil Hellmuth.

Notables who still have a good shot after bagging above-average stacks were David Williams (51,500), Vanessa Selbst (51,200), Amnon Filippi (49,200), Jen Harman (46,100), the white-hot Brandon Shack-Harris (42,200), and Justin Bonomo (39,500).

Day 2 will commence at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, at which point you should come right back here for more coverage of the tournament on PokerNews.

Rast Stacking Plenty

Level 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante

Brian Rast may be the chip leader as we approach the last few orbits of the night.

In a recent pot, he checked on the end in a battle of the blinds and saw the big blind bet a board of {k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. After some thought, Rast called.

"Well done," the big blind said, waiting for Rast to show.

Rast tossed the {k-Hearts} out.

"Good," his opponent said as he mucked.

Rast showed his other cards: {10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}.

Burr, Chen Survive

Level 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante

Melissa Burr and Bill Chen were all in on a {2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop against two opponents. The active players each checked the {5-Spades} and {5-Diamonds}.

"That was an above average run out for my hand," Burr said.

"Oh no, are we chopping the low?" Chen asked, showing {a-Spades}{3-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}.

"I have high," Burr said, to Chen's relief.

After the side pot was sorted out, Burr showed {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts} for a boat, and she and Chen split the majority of the chips in the middle.
