Chris Sandrock, of Helena, Montana, leads the field into Day 2 of Event #45: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship at the 2021 World Series of Poker. The prestigious PLO event attracted 317 runners to Day 1 with more expected before late registration ends at the start of Day 2 on Sunday at 2 p.m.

Sandrock, a casino owner and former professional poker player, found himself at or around the chip lead for most of the day after taking down big pots early and often. Sandrock has been hitting the pay window at the WSOP since 1995 when he took 12th in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event. His last of three career WSOP cashes came in 2007 at the $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship where he took tenth, and he’ll be looking to break his drought this week with his first WSOP gold bracelet. He ended Day 1 with 748,500 chips.

JC Tran (348,500) returns on Day 2 after running up his chip stack in the latter parts of Day 1. He is looking for his third gold bracelet and his first since winning the $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event in 2009.

Soverel Loses to Cowboys

connorrichards • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Sam Soverel opened on the button and the player in the small blind flat-called, while the big blind folded.

Soverel bet 4,100 when checked to on the flop of {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and his opponent called. Both players checked on the {3-Hearts} turn.

Both players checked again on the {4-Clubs} river and Soverel mucked when his opponent showed the winning hand with {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

It was a small loss for Soverel, who was down to 45,000 chips last level and has built his stack to more than five times that.
