Another day is in the books at the 2019 World Series of Poker and Day 2 of Event #63: $1,500 Omaha Mix is done. Blake Schwartzbach bagged the chip lead with 475,000. Phil Laak (243,000) and 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Ryan Riess (222,000) also managed to find a bag. The players will continue on Saturday, June 29, at 2 p.m. local time and the plan is to play down to the final six players.

Day 2 Action
The tournament started with 717 players and only 228 of them came back for Day 2. That number has now dwindled down to 38 players and all of them have secured a payday of at least $4,131. Only the 108 players reached the money which meant a lot of players would have to be eliminated before the money was reached.

A couple of the players that failed to make the money included James Obst, Allen Kessler, Max Pescatori, and Brock Parker. They all missed out on the min-cash worth $2,249. The first player to collect that money was Paul Siem. He finished the tournament in 108th place. Others who collected $2,249 include Felipe Duarte (104th), Anton Morgenstern (102nd), and Todd Witteles (100th).

Some other notable players that cashed but didnt makeit to Day 3 included Jeff Lisandro (95th - $2,287), James Chen (90th - $2,287), Jussi Nevanlinna (75th - $2,382), Barney Boatman (65th - $2,541), and Allen Le (59th - $2,775).

Plenty of familiar faces are still in contention for the first-place prize of $199,838 including Joe Tehan (458,000), Sean Yu (445,000), Noah Bronstein (317,000), Patrick Leonard (220,000),last year's champion Yueqi Zhu
(218,000) Andreas Klatt (102,000), and Barry Greenstein (37,000). Greenstein will start with one of the shorter stacks.

Another player that made Day 3 with a very short stack is Bart Hanson. Hanson bagged 54,000 and made another Day 3 at the 2019 WSOP. Hanson finished in fourth position in the $1,500 Monster Stack earlier in the series and he managed to win $344,079 in that tournament. He can't win that much in this tournament but he can still win his first WSOP gold bracelet.

The tournament will continue Saturday, June 29th, in the Amazon room at 2 p.m. local time. Make sure to stay tuned in to PokerNews for all the latest updates on who will get closer to winning a gold World Series of Poker bracelet.

DegenOnTour • Level 20: 3,000-5,000, 0 ante

Ryan Riess: {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}
Maxim Kotenok: {a-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

Final Board: {3-Hearts}{2-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades}{8-Spades}

All of the chips went in for both players on the turn, with both picking up a wheel, and Riess picking up a spade for the nut flush draw. The {8-Spades} came in on the river to complete the flush, giving Riess the high to himself.

Zyrin Almost Doubles Through Leonard

DegenOnTour • Level 20: 3,000-5,000, 0 ante
Anatolii Zyrin
Anatolii Zyrin

Omaha Hi-Lo

Anatolii Zyrin put in a lot of bets when he was in a hand against Patrick Leonard. The complete board ran out {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{k-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Zyrin put in a bet before the river was dealt.

Leonard called the bet and Zyrin tabled {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} for a full house. Leonard showed the case king and mucked the other three cards, sending the pot to Zyrin.

Zyrin secured his fifth cash of the 2019 WSOP in this event. The Russian finished in second place in Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout and just missed out on a bracelet.

Leonard ended the hand with 281000 while Zyrin ends with 200,000.

Kennedy Leaves Harkin Barely Hanging On

GeoffFisk • Level 20: 3,000-5,000, 0 ante

Big O

Jeremy Harkin limped under the gun, Scott Eskenazi called on the button, and Timothy Kennedy checked from the big blind.

The action checked to Harkin on the {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop, who bet 15,000 and got a call from Eskenazi. Kennedy then raised all-in, Harkin called, and Eskenazi bowed out.

Jeremy Harkin: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}
Timothy Kennedy: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}

Final Board: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Both players flopped a broadway straight for the nuts, but the running {3-Hearts}{3-Spades} gave Kennedy an unlikely full boat, sending Harkin down to just 25,000 chips.
