Welcome to the penultimate day of Event #66: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship.

Today, November 5, the remaining 12 players will return and play down to the final five.

Danny Chang (3,620,000 chips) is the man to catch heading into Day 3. He is the only player that bagged over the three million mark, with his nearest competitor Dan Colpoys (2,040,000 chips) just above two million.

Look for Chang to use his chip-leading stack in an attempt to navigate his way to the coveted WSOP championship gold bracelet along with the $484,791 in first-place cash.

Still in the hunt and always a factor are current WSOP bracelet owners Anatolii Zyrin (1,155,000 chips; 2x WSOP Winner), Josh Arieh (1,015,000 chips; 3x WSOP Winner), John Esposito (480,000; 1x WSOP Winner), and Alan Sternberg (410,000 chips; 1x WSOP Winner). Each of these gentlemen enters Day 3 in hopes of reaching that championship finale and adding another piece of hardware to their respective collection.
