Event #6: €1,650 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha

March to the Final Table Begins as Big-Name Pros Litter Final 26

David Benyamine begins Day 2 second in chips.

The preliminary events of the 2012 World Series of Poker Europe are nearing an end, but there’s still a couple of things to finish up before the €10,000 Main Event including Day 2 of Event #6: €1,650 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha. Today’s action will pick up the final 26 players of a 206-player field, 21 of which will earn a payday on their way to the final table.

The man best position to make a deep run is Jacob Dahl, who finished Day 1 as the chip leader with 74,200. Standing in his way is some stiff competition including David Benyamine, Aku Joentausta, Andrew Lichtenberger, Ana Marquez, Dan Smith, John Eames, Micah Smith, John Monnette, Mike “Timex” McDonald, Daniel Negreanu, Dan Shak Andy Frankenberger and Greg Merson. Needless to say, this is a stacked field.
