After 10 one-hour levels of play, the first day of Event #80: $3,000 6-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha is officially complete. The Amazon Room inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino was nothing short of electric all day as alongside this event, the final day of the Main Event played to its conclusion.

Though today was only Day 1, the tournament contributed significantly to the action and excitement in the room as it filled up the Orange section of the Amazon room as a field of 496 entries for a $1,324,320 prize pool played down to just 122 players.

When the dust settled, it was Ruslan Nazarenko that bagged the chip lead with a massive stack of 616,500. He was far and away the chip leader, though he enjoys the company of a leaderboard full of notables. Chino Rheem (500,000), Maxx Coleman (496,000), Michael Moncek (445,000), and James Mordue (420,000) all bagged north of 400,000 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 Steven Forman flopped a set of ladies with the nut flush draw and dropped three players to finishing the night with a stack of 460,000. Other notables to advance to Day 2 include Uri Reichenstein (357,000), Michael Hudson (334,500), Anatolii Zyrin (280,500), and Ali Imsirovic (268,500).

Some players who were not as fortunate to make it to the end of the day included Craig Varnell, Chance Kornuth, Shaun Deeb, David Williams, and defending champ Alan Sternberg.

Day 2 continues Thursday at 2 p.m. local time with blinds of 1,000/2,500. Ten more one-hour levels are on the docket with a 15-minute break occurring after every two levels, and there will be a one-hour dinner break after the sixth hour of play.

There will be 124 players returning for Day 2 but almost half will have to drop before they will make any money as only the top 75 places will be paid out at least $4,819, while the winner of the event will take home $280,916 along with the coveted WSOP bracelet.

Final Five Hands

AnthonyThompson • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

The tournament director has just announced the final five hands of the tournament.

Chang Doubles with Top Two

AnthonyThompson • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante
Danny Chang
Danny Chang

There was three-way action after a {q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop. The action was checked to the hijack who fired out 25,000 and Nathaniel Katzoff called from the small blind

The action was on Danny Chang who raised all in for 96,000 and only the hijack called.

Chang rolled over {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} for top two-pair and the {3-Hearts} turn followed by the {2-Clubs} river secured his double as his opponent didn't hold a flush draw or a better pair in their hand.
