Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Rex Clinkscales Leads After Day 1 of Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Split 8 or Better

Rex Clinkscales

After 10 levels of play, many bust outs, and many double ups, it was Rex Clinkscales who walked away as the Day 1 chip leader of Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Split 8 or Better. He managed to bag up 96,200 chips. Clinkscales cruised through most of the day unnoticed, sporting an average to above average stack, but in the last two levels of play he rocketed into the chip lead, overtaking James Chen who held the chip lead for most of the evening. Chen finished second in chips for the night, bagging up 92,400. Clinkscales has 1 WSOP Circuit Ring already and will look to add a bracelet to his collection in this event.

A total of 905 players registered for Event #4 and many of them didn’t make it through the day. Only 254 players will return on Friday. Of those who didn’t make it through the day were Jeff Madsen, Jason Mercier, Mike Sexton, David Benyamine, Shaun Deeb, Scotty Nguyen, Todd Brunson and Andy Frankenberger.

There are still plenty of big names left in the field including last year’s champion Benny Glaser. Glaser will return for Day 2 with 19,400 chips and will look to push past the money bubble in an attempt to go back to back in this event and to lock up his fourth WSOP gold bracelet. Also returning Friday are Hani Awad (23,700), Aaron Steury (64,100), Allen Kessler (8,700), Jeffrey Lisandro (26,000), Dan Heimiller (15,000), and Paul Tedeschi (32,700), to name a few.

In total, the prize pool for this event ballooned to $1,357,500, creating a first place prize of $238,620. A final table appearance will earn $16,726 and a minimum cash will garner $2,253. The bubble for this tournament will break once only 136 players remain and should come quickly after play resumes, with just over 100 players to go.

Players will return at 2 p.m. PST on Friday and will play through 10 more levels. PokerNews will be here with all the action so be sure to stay tuned.
