After 10 one-hour levels of play, Day 1 of Event #85: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed is officially complete. The Amazon Room inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino was nothing short of electric all day with numerous other final tables occurring including Day 7 of the Main Event.

Though today was only Day 1, the tournament contributed significantly to the action and excitement in the room as it filled up the purple section of the Amazon room and spilled into orange for a while as a field of 835 entries played down to just 173.

When the dust settled, it was Paresh Doshi that bagged the chip lead with a massive stack of 359,300. He was far and away the chip leader, though he enjoys the company of a leaderboard full of notables. Keith Lehr (239,400), Anton Morgenstern (233,000), Martin Zamani (231,700), David Williams (211,600), and Leif Force (211,000) all bagged north of 200,000 at the end of the day and will look to build on that figure tomorrow.

An interesting hand occurred the last hand of the night when 888poker Ambassador Vivian Saliba hit a royal flush against a set and doubled up, finishing the night with a stack of 125,800. Other notables to advance to Day 2 include Max Silver (199,700), Joseph Cheong (151,500), Bryce Yockey (109,700), and Ben Yu (21,900).

Some players who were not as fortunate to make it to the end of the day included Joe Hachem, Alex Foxen, Cliff Josephy, Dan Zack, and Yuri Dzivielevski, who registered after finishing in 28th place in the Main Event for a payday of $261,430 just hours before.

Day 2 continues Saturday at 2 p.m. local time with blinds of 800/1,600. Ten more one-hour levels are on the docket with 15-minute breaks at the completion of each level and a one-hour dinner break after the sixth hour of play. Keep your eyes peeled as PokerNews provides coverage throughout the homestretch of the 2019 World Series of Poker.

Three More Hands

HillKerby • Level 10: 600-1,200, 0 ante

The tournament director has instructed dealers to deal three more hands before standing up to indicate the end of play for the evening.

Force Over 200K

HillKerby • Level 10: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Leif Force was just seen with a stack of 215,000 and when asked, he confirmed that was the figure.

"Yeah, somebody decided to donate 90,000 to me when I had aces," he said. He then added that his opponent also had aces.

Force had {a-Diamonds}{a-}{j-}{9-} with nut clubs and his opponent had {a-}{a-}{k-}{10-}. Force proceeded to ask for clubs.

The flop gave him a taste of what he was looking for, coming {2-}{10-}{q-} with two clubs. However, beggars could not be choosers as the turn came {k-} to give him Broadway. The river fell an offsuit {4-} and he faded his opponent's redraw outs to a full house and he now finds himself with one of the top stacks in the room.

Schindler Flops a Wheel

HillKerby • Level 10: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Upeshka De Silva was heard on the rail predicting that the ensuing hand would be a good one for Jake Schindler.

The hijack limped and action folded around to Schindler in the small blind who completed. The big blind checked his option and the three saw a flop of {5-Hearts}{a-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Schindler bet 2,000 and the big blind folded before the hijack called.

The turn came {k-Diamonds} and Schindler bet 7,000. His opponent asked if it was 7,000 or 11,000, unsure of the denominations that had been used. Schindler confirmed seven, saying he couldn't make it 11,000 if he wanted to due to the pot size of 9,000. His opponent agreed and then made the call. Schindler put out another bet on a blank river and his opponent folded, briefly showing Schindler two of his cards.

Schindler returned the favor, showing {4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a flopped wheel and scooped in the pot, proving Da Silva's prophetic powers positive this time.
