With 203 players returning today for only 196 places getting paid, this Event #58: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better at the 2022 World Series of Poker will start in a somewhat brutal way for seven players. Then, once the money bubble has burst, it will be time for the rest to focus on the objective of winning this WSOP Gold bracelet. It won't be tonight, however, because this tournament is scheduled for a third day on Wednesday.
With Justin Liberto as the current chipleader (791,000), defending champion Kevin Gerhart (147,000) is also in the race with almost an average stack, and he'll be joined by a lot of WSOP champions like David Prociak, Raj Vohra, Connor Drinan, Jared Jaffee, Eoghan O'Dea, Leif Force and Jeff Lisandro, to name a few who have more than the chip average.
Players will play through 10 levels, beginning at Level 16, with 3,000/6,000 blinds with a 6,000 big blind ante. Levels will be extended from 40 to 60 minutes long for the remainder of the event. A 15-minute break is scheduled after every two levels, with a 60-minute dinner break slated for after Level 21, expected to be around 8:30 p.m. local time.
