Matt Woodward Among the Leaders After Day 1 of $1,500 Mixed Omaha

Matt Woodward

The day has come to an end at the World Series of Poker and the remaining 225 players in Event #35: Mixed Omaha were the last ones to leave the building. Matt Woodward bagged himself an impressive 82,425 chips to sit among the leaders heading into Day 2.

Woodward entered the tournament just prior to the first break and found himself sitting at the same table as Phil Hellmuth for a greater portion of the day. After a few clashes with one of the greats, Woodward brought a healthy stack to David Bach's table and laid a beating on the chip leader at the time. The US poker pro already has a final table to his name this summer in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. event where he finished in fourth place. Woodward also has over $2.4 million in career tournament earnings with the majority of them coming in the mixed game variants.

He will closely be following the chip leader on the day, Peter Nett, who bagged the top stack of 91,450. A few other big stacks moving on after a successful first day include Ammon Warner (80,350) and James Alexander (50,175). With a total of 773 entries, this marks the largest ever Mixed Omaha event held at the WSOP. That may be in part to the fact that a single re-entry option was given to the players for the first eight levels.

It was a late start to the day with the cards getting in the air shortly after 3pm local time which meant the action carried on into the wee hours of the night. Plenty of familiar names showed up to play some split-pot poker and the chopped pots were plentiful in the first few hours. There was not much chip movement after the first couple levels while the stakes were still small.

As the blinds continued to grow, the chip leaders started to pull away from the rest of the pack. Carol Fuchs (33,300) was the first to amass a heap of chips, taking over the lead in the early going. Fuchs already has one WSOP gold bracelet to her name coming back in 2015 in the $1,500 Dealers Choice event.

Many players exchanged the chip lead throughout the day and it passed through the hands of many notables. Andrew Barber held a big stack late in the day and wound up bagging 58,000 chips. Some other notables moving on to Day 2 include Mike Ross (77,875), Dylan Wilkerson (46,525), Joao Simao (42,500), David Bach (34,800), Barry Greenstein (34,050), and Hellmuth (27,000).

A few of the familiar faces that failed to make it to the end of the day include Marcel Luske, James Woods, Norman Chad, Mike Sexton, Scott Clements, and Jeff Madsen. When the remaining 225 players return for Day 2, there will still be quite a bit of play before the money bubble is reached. There will be 116 players lucky enough to grab a piece of the $1,043,550 prize pool with a min-cash being worth $2,258.

Another full ten levels will be on the schedule for Day 2 starting off on level 11. The levels will be 60-minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after the sixth level. The action will get underway at 2pm local time inside the Rio Convention Center with those managing to last until the end of the day returning for Day 3.
