Chris Sandrock takes his 748,500 chips and the lead into Day 2 of Event #45: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship Sunday at the World Series of Poker.

The casino owner from Helena, Montana will be trying to extend his lead, and hold off a remaining field of 131 players plus late registrants (registration is open until Day 2 begins at 2:00 pm local time), that features some of poker’s biggest names, including JC Tran (348,500), David Benyamine (290,500), and Brett Richey (286,000), who all finished Day 1 in the top 10 in chips.

Sandrock couldn’t ask for a tougher table draw to start the day however, as seated with him will be two-time WSOP bracelet winner in PLO, including this event in 2016, Brandon Shack-Harris (212,500), Lithuanian star Dominykas Karmazinas (115,000), and Swedish star Simon Mattsson (40,500).

Closest to Sandrock entering the day will be Arthur Morris (533,500), whose PLO accomplishments include a 24th place finish in the $25,000 WSOP High Roller event in 2015.

The field entering Day 2 is also littered with plenty more notables and some of the most talented Pot-Limit Omaha players in the world, including Sam Soverel (278,500), Joni Jouhkimainen (192,000), and Niklas Astedt (172,500). They’ll all carry healthy stacks into play, while some other big names like Mike Matusow (88,000), Brian Rast (67,500), Mike Gorodinsky (60,500), John Racener (60,000), and Dan Zack (47,000) will have some work to do to start the day.

Play begins in the Amazon room at level 11 with blinds of 1,000 and 2,500 with a 2,500 big blind ante. Ten 60-minute levels will be played with a 60-minute dinner break after level 16 (approximately 8:30 pm local time). The players will likely reach the money later in the day.
