Ten hours of play have been completed and Day 1 of Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship is officially in the books. The day saw 175 players enter the tournament throughout the duration of the day and when the final hands were through, Michael McKenna (355,600) found himself as the chip leader among the 118 remaining.

Randy Ohel sits in second. Ohel was seen entering the tournament shortly after the first break. He chipped up steadily, reaching almost 100,000 in less than three hours of play. He was one of the chip leaders by the third break with around 136,000 and was flirting with the 200,000-mark by the last break of the night. The last two levels of the night saw that increase to his final resting total of 304,100

Third in chips and hot on his tail is Omaha Hi-Lo beast Kate Hoang, who found a double up early on and accumulated her stack to 291,800 over the course of the day without much resistance. Rounding out the likely top five in chips are Stephen Johnson (228,000) and Robert Cowen (215,700).

Other notable players to bag large stacks include Alex Foxen (170,600), Scott Bohlman (166,000), John Esposito (155,000), and Chris Vitch (126,100), who spent most of the day at or below starting stack before working his way to an above-average stack at the end of the day.

Many other entrants were not as fortunate. Eli Elezra, Daniel Negreanu, Jennifer Tilly, Erik Seidel, Roland Israelashvili, and Julien Martini were among the 57 players to be eliminated during today’s action.

Registration will remain open until the start of Day 2 at 2 p.m. local time on Saturday, 29th June and PokerNews will be on the floor covering all the action.

Two More Hands

Level 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante

The tournament director has instructed the dealers to deal two more hands before concluding play for the night.

Ross Backs Into Flush

Level 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante

Mike Ross limped in from early position and Kate Hoang raised to 4,000 from middle position. Dylan Linde called from the cutoff and action folded back to Ross, who also called. The flop came {8-Spades}{k-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and all three players checked.

On the {9-Hearts} turn, action checked to Linde who put in a bet of 9,500. Ross made the call and Hoang got out of their way. The river came {j-Hearts} and both players checked.

"Flush," said Ross as he tabled {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. Linde nodded in approval and tossed his cards to the muck.
