Jarred Graham - 22nd Place

Jarred Graham opened for a raise under the gun and called a three-bet from Tom Marchese on the button, seeing a flop of {6-Clubs}{7-Spades}{10-Spades}. Graham potted for nearly all of his stack and called Marchese's shove.

Marchese: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Spades}
Graham: {10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

Graham had flopped tens up, while Marchese had an overpair with the nut flush draw. The {8-Hearts} turn was no help to Marchese, but the {5-Spades} river filled his flush draw, eliminating the Aussie.

Welcome to Day 3 of Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

Isaac Baron is one of the top contenders for Day 3.
Isaac Baron is one of the top contenders for Day 3.

Twenty-three players have emerged from a field of 418 to contend for the crown in Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship. German Marko Neumann leads them with 1,442,000, and American star Isaac Baron sits in second with 1,267,000.

Plenty of other notable names remain in the hunt for the $923,379 first-place prize, which comes with both a coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet and the title of PLO world champion. Former Main Event runner-up David Williams (698,000), Tom Marchese (677,000), British star Sam Trickett (468,000), JC Tran (431,000), Matt Stout (425,000), Canada's Matt Marafioti (371,000), and Russia's Alex Kravcenko (247,000) make up a diverse and dangerous cast of players.

Cards are scheduled to be in the air at 2 p.m. local time, and we should see the tournament play down to a champion. The structure will begin at Level 21 (8,000/16,000), with hour levels as always, meaning most of the top contenders have very solid stacks. We know it's hard to peel your eyes away from the Main Event, but if any tournament is worthy of attention, it's definitely this one.
