Scott Abrams of Henderson, Nevada is the chip leader once again after bagging the top stack of Day 1 in Event #21: $1,500 Mixed Omaha. A field of 27 players will return on Tuesday at 2 p.m. to compete for a WSOP gold bracelet and the top prize of $170,269. The 641 entries generated an $855,735 prize pool.

Abrams is joined by Jordan Spurlin, Hernan Salazar, and Ryan Roeder at the top of the leaderboard, each with over 1 million chips. Abrams is looking for his first gold bracelet at the 2021 World Series of Poker after seven career top-ten finishes in mixed game varieties.

Other notables returning for Day 3 include Daniel Negreanu (535,000), Dylan Linde (470,000), Patrick Tardif (410,000), Ari Engel (305,000), and PJ Cha (200,000). Linde is a mixed games specialist on the hunt for his first WSOP gold bracelet and Engel will try to win his second WSOP title of the 2021 WSOP after taking down Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo just last week.

Negreanu had a rollercoaster Day 2 with several chip swings coming late in the evening. After building up his stack over the course of the day, Negreanu was on the wrong end of a four-way pot that brought him near the brink of elimination, but he soon found his way back again and ended the day with a stack that is just below average. Negreanu will return tomorrow to hunt for his seventh gold bracelet after already cashing three times at the 2021 WSOP.

Remaining Payouts

The winner will receive $170,269 and all remaining players are guaranteed at least $5,627.


Day 3 will restart on Tuesday, October 12 at 2 p.m., and the 27 players will return and play until there is a winner. Blinds will begin in Level 26 with pot-limit blinds at 10,000/20,000/20,000 with limits at 20,000/40,000. Levels will once again be 60 minutes on Day 3 with a 15-minute break every two levels and a dinner break to be determined.

That's it for Day 2 coverage of Event #21: $1,500 Mixed Omaha live from the 2021 WSOP. Be sure to keep it with the PokerNews live reporting team for updates on all the action as it happens.

End of Day 2

MattHansen • Level 25

Day 2 has come to an end with 27 players bagging for Day 3.

Stay tuned for chip counts and a recap.

Four More Hands

MikePatrick • Level 25

With 27 players remaining, tournament officials have announced that four more hands will be played to close out the day.

Spurlin Scoops Massive Pot Near End of Night

MikePatrick • Level 25

Big O

With three-way action already in front of him preflop, Jordan Spurlin moved all-in from the big blind for 165,000.

Dana Kellstrom, Daniel Negreanu and Ryan Laplante all called, building an almost 700,000 chip pot.

On the {6-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} flop, Kellstrom checked, and Negreanu moved all-in for approximately 150,000 effective as he covered both Kellstrom and Laplante. Both players folded as Negreanu showed the {a-Clubs}, then revealed the rest of his hand.

Jordan Spurlin: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Daniel Negreanu: {a-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

The board completed with the {7-Spades} and {9-Diamonds}, and Spurlin made a nine-high straight to scoop the massive pot, quadrupling up and then some.

Laplante Leaves Ramos Short, Salazar Finishes Him Off

MikePatrick • Level 25
Ryan Laplante
Ryan Laplante

Limit Omaha 8 or Better

Ryan Laplante has earned a near double-up in a hand that left Gabriel Ramos with crumbs.

With nearly his entire stack in the middle already on a board of {4-Hearts}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, Ramos called one more big bet, leaving himself with just 10,000 chips behind.

Laplante showed {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for top two pair and a six-low. Ramos showed a worse two pair and a worse low with {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, giving the pot to Laplante.

Ramos would lose that final 10,000 in the next hand to Hernan Salazar, whose chip-leading stack sat at over 1.6 million.
