After a dramatic day at the felt, Event #52: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship at the World Series of Poker will be a record-setting affair, with registration still open until the start of Level 11 on Sunday. 494 players hit the felt, already eclipsing last year's 476 player field.

When the smoke had cleared, one of the biggest stacks in the room was none other than Ben Lamb, who won this event back in 2011, defeating Sami Kelopuro in heads-up play to win his only bracelet and $813,346. Lamb went on an absolute tear near the end of the day to bag up 343,700 in chips, which should be near the top of the counts.

Sasha Liu had a super swingy day, as she was involved in many notable pots throughout the day, but she managed to end on the right side of the pendulum by night's end, bagging a healthy 242,300 to take on to Sunday.

Other notables that managed to navigate their way to Day 2 include Chris O'Hara (278,000), Kahle Burns (210,200), Ryan Laplante (206,000), Daniel Negreanu (195,000), Phil Galfond (147,600), Daniel Alaei (138,000), Robert Mizrachi (126,500), and Sam Soverel (66,000).

The clock showed that 253 players made it through tonight's flight, a little over half of the field that fired today; with registration still open, that number will almost certainly increase by the beginning of play tomorrow.

Not everyone was fortunate enough to make it through the day, and some of those we lost include former WSOP Main Event champs Joe Hachem and Scotty Nguyen, WSOP bracelet winners Bryn Kenney, Rep Porter, David Williams, Leif Force, Max Pescatori, Michael Mizrachi, and Ayaz Mahmood. Len Ashby, Jesse Sylvia, Tony Miles, and Matt Shepsky also were unable to notch a Day 2 bag.

Play resumes at 2 p.m. on Sunday at blinds of 1,000/2,000 and PokerNews will be right here to catch all the action as we march on towards crowning this year's $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha champ!

Three More Hands

DegenOnTour • Nível 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante

There are three hands left in the day before they will bag up.

Astedt Doubles Up

DegenOnTour • Nível 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante

The day is almost done and Niklas Astedt managed to double up about twenty minutes before the bagging and tagging. He got his chips in the middle with {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{9-Clubs} against the {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{6-Spades} of his neighbor on the {k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop.

The board ran out with the {9-Diamonds} turn and {8-Spades} river in Astedt's favor and the Swede doubled up. He is still below the starting stack of 60,000 but he has a little more comfort now.

Soverel's Tiny Bet Works Against Lamb

• Nível 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante
Ben Lamb
Ben Lamb

Ben Lamb, who has been on an absolute tear the last few levels, raised to 4,300 on the button, and Sam Soverel three-bet to 13,700 in the big blind. Lamb made a joke about making this hand take "twenty-nine minutes" which is the amount of time remaining in the day, then called.

On the {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop, Soverel bet 4,200, and Lamb immediately pantomimed throwing a chip at Soverel. He then smirked, and folded. Soverel showed {a-}{q-}{10-}{9-} and Lamb said, "Same hand."

Galfond Gets Unlucky To Chop

• Nível 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante
Phil Galfond in previous action
Phil Galfond in previous action

With a {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{8-Clubs} board out and 40,000 already in the middle, Phil Galfond had a bet of 27,000 out in front of him from the small blind. His opponent on the button tanked for a few minutes before making the call.

The {a-Diamonds} fell on the river, and Galfond took his time before betting 15,000. The button raised to 42,000, Galfond jammed for 75,000 total and the button called. Galfond showed {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for the turned Broadway straight and a Royal Flush draw in hearts, and found his opponent had matched him with his {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for two pair and a club flush draw along with the Broadway draw that came in on the river.

Flack Chipping Up

DegenOnTour • Nível 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante

Layne Flack is in the tournament and everyone is aware of that. Flack seems to enjoy himself a lot and in the meantime, he is not doing bad in the tournament. Flack is up to 160,000 in chips after he won another small pot.

A player in early position raised to 4,000 and Flack called from the button. The player in the big blind defended as well.

The flop came down {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and it checked to Flack who bet 10,500. The other two players folded and Flack showed {10-}{9-}{8-}.
