At the start of Day 2 of Event #46: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, 151 players took their seats, but just 21 bagged chips at the conclusion of play. Leading the way is WSOP Circuit regular Millard Hale with 640,000 chips, and nipping at his heels is Kevin Saul with 613,000. Miguel Use is close behind with 598,000, and John O'Shea (459,000) and three-time bracelet winner Barry Greenstein (359,000) round out the top five stacks.

Greenstein started the day short-stacked but won a crucial pot in a three-way all-in to propel him into the chip lead. All the chips went in on the flop, and Greenstein rivered a straight to stack bracelet winner Viatcheslav Ortynskiy and double through the third player, Gregory Warner. Saul began to seriously chip up about halfway through Day 2 and remained one of the largest stacks in play throughout the second half of the day. Hale had about the chip average at the beginning of the day and won a key pot on the bubble, which occurred at Level 12, to eliminate Fabrice Soulier putting his stack above the 100,000-chip mark, and he chipped up steadily from that point onward in hot pursuit of WSOP gold and the top prize of $223,339.

Some of the more well-known players who were eliminated over the course of Day 2 include Ben Yu, Calvin Anderson, Kyle Bowker, Jeff Gross, Brock Parker, and Mohsin Charania.

When the final 21 players return on Sunday, play will begin at Level 21 with 6,000/12,000 blinds and the remainder of the field will play until the champion emerges.

Miguel Use Quarters Barry Greenstein

simkha • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

With about 60,000 already in the middle and the board reading {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, Barry Greenstein bet 35,000 from the cutoff and Miguel Use called from the button.

The turn brought the {10-Clubs} and Greenstein checked. Use bet 85,000 and Greenstein called.

The {4-Hearts} fell on the river and Greenstein checked. Use announced "pot" for 311,000, and Greenstein tanked briefly before he called.

Use tabled {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades} for the nut low and nut flush, and Greenstein showed {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for the nut low, so Use took three quarters of the pot.
