Day 2 of Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed has concluded with only 10 players remaining from an original field of 1,891. Day 2 saw 108 hopefuls return for their bid to make the final table. The original plan was to play down to the final six players, however, the decision was made to stop at the end of Level 27 instead. Day 3 resumes at noon on June 16 and continues until a champion is crowned.
Ending the day with the chip lead was none other than Daniel Weinman with 6,420,000 chips, or 64 big blinds if you prefer. Weinman is a WSOP Circuit ring winner and has come close to securing a coveted WSOP bracelet several times, but one still eludes him. Weinman now has another crack of the whip in this event.
Also through to the final day's proceedings are such luminaries as Chino Rheem (4,855,000), Stephen Song (2,665,000), and German grinder Oliver Weis (1,610,000), who online poker fans will know better as "sk2ll_m0dR".
