An extra day of PLO action is required to find a winner in Event #25: $600 Pot-Limit Omaha Deepstack at the 2019 World Series of Poker as twelve people remain to battle for the bracelet. The tournament attracted a total of 2,577 entries which generated a prize pool of $1,352,925 and the first-place prize of $205,605. All twelve players still in the tournament are guaranteed to take home at least $13,212, but they'll all be desperate to add a WSOP bracelet in this event to their collection.
Corey Wright ended Day 1 of the tournament on top of the leaderboard with 215 players remaining and he held on to the top spot when there were twelve players remaining, albeit after a slow start and a fast finish to the previous day's play. Either way, Wright still leads the tournament with an impressive 16,025,000 which is roughly two-and-a-half times the average chip stack of 6.4 million. Wright's biggest recorded live tournament cash was a little over $6,000 and he has already doubled that. If he manages to secure at least one pay jump he will more than double his entire recorded lifetime earnings.
Tom Franklin is the only bracelet winner left in the tournament. The 'Captain' won a $2,500 Limit Omaha bracelet exactly twenty years ago and he could add a second piece of WSOP jewelry to that today by beating the other 11 players. Franklin bagged a stack of 9,150,000 and sits third on the leaderboard.
Players will continue in level 36 with blinds standing at 250,000 and 500,000. The average chip stack is just under 13 big blinds and levels will last 40 minutes. The will have a small break after every three levels and there might be a dinner break but that depends on how many players will be left.
