The largest $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship in the history of the World Series of Poker has 39 players out of 683 entries remaining. All of them are aiming to secure the largest possible share of the $6,368,975 prize pool and will return to their seats in the Paris Ballroom when Event #69: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship resumes at 2 p.m. local time.

Leading the way in the latest Championship Event of the 2022 WSOP in its new home at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas is Michael Duek with a massive stack of 4,460,000. His nearest followers Shiva Dudani (3,280,000) and Tom Hu (2,315,000) are both separated by nearly one million in chips each, which showcases the scale of Duek's surge in the previous night.

Eight of the players in the top ten hail from the US including two WSOP bracelet winners in Robert Nehorayan (2,105,000) and Jeff Madsen (1,795,000) but plenty of international players will aim to avoid a home victory in the two days to come. Russia's Iakov Onuchin (1,950,000) and Canada's Lev Zerkal (1,115,000) reside in the overnight top ten thus far.

Just outside of the top ten is mixed game specialist Dzmitry Urbanovich with a stack of 1,075,000 and he is closely followed by the WSOP bracelet winners Brandon Adams and John Beauprez. The latter finished third in Event #53: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller during the 2021 WSOP and will certainly try and better this result for a shot at his second career bracelet.

Other notables still in contention include Toby Lewis, Elior Sion, Joachim Haraldstad, Ronald Keijzer, Patrick Leonard and Scott Baumstein. While defending champion Tommy Le was eliminated in the money on Day 2 and won't have a shot at a third title in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship, his brother Allan Le returns with 600,000 in chips to potentially follow into his footsteps.

The action is set to recommence at 2 p.m. local time with level 21 and blinds of 10,000-25,000 and a big blind ante of 25,000. All levels will last 60 minutes each until the conclusion of the tournament and Day 3 is slate to play down to the final five contenders.

Stay tuned right here on PokerNews to find out who retains the chance to win the elusive gold bracelet in Event #69: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship at the 2022 WSOP in its new home at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas.
