Day 2 of the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship is a wrap and Abe Mosseri leads the final 17 players who survived the day. Mosseri, as well as Yarron Bendor, are the only players to bag up a seven-figure chip counts, with 1,855,000 and 1,195,000 respectively.
Mosseri is in the lead, but Daniel Negreanu is also one of the top stacks and is looking to add bracelet number seven to his already impressive resume. He went agonizingly close last week, finishing 3rd in the $10,000 Tag Team Championship event, and will be looking to go two spots better in this event.
Other top pros coming back for what is scheduled to be the final day, include Max Pescatori, Mike Matusow, Dan Shak, Fabrice Soulier, John Monnette, David “ODB” Baker, Anthony Zinno, Owais Ahmed and Matt Woodward.
The day started with 64 players, but players quickly fell by the wayside. The money bubble burst about an hour after players returned from their dinner break, with the top 24 players earning at least $14,809. Randy Ohel (20th), Gary Benson (19th) and Chris George (18th) were some of the pros who hit the rail after the money bubble burst.
Vyacheslav Zhukov, Frank Kassela, Brock Parker, Andrey Zaichenko, Marco Johnson, Matt Glantz and Tom Koral were among the players who hit the rail before the bubble burst. Chris Bell was the unfortunate bubble boy, finishing in 25th place.
Play resumes at 2 p.m. local time on Tuesday, when the remaining 17 players will be back in the Brasilia room to play to a winner. If there is no winner at the end of ten 60-minute levels, they will return for a fourth unscheduled day.
