Out of the 799 players who took to the felt in pursuit of WSOP gold in Event #30: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha, just 13 remain in contention. Each player is guaranteed a payday of at least $9,173, but all eyes are on the top prize of $217,123.

Leading the way is Ryan Bambrick with 1,727,000 chips. Bambrick won a gigantic pot near the conclusion of Day 2 to eliminate Farid Jattin and become the first player to cross the 1,000,000-chip mark. In fact, Bambrick was the only player to bag a seven-figure stack at the day's end. The next largest stack belongs to Canada's Phil Riley (864,000).

Several familiar faces are still in the hunt; Victor Ramdin (84,000), and Lexy Gavin (80,000) will both return for Day 3 action, but they'll both have work to do, as they're the two shortest stacks by a fair margin. George Xu (180,000), who won this event in 2016, is the only bracelet winner remaining in the field after two-time bracelet winner Scott Clements busted in the final moments of Day 2 play.
