Adam Owen bagged the chip lead for Day 1b of Event #18: $565 Pot-Limit Omaha with 410,000. Owen will lead the way for 45 other players when they start Day 2 tomorrow at 2 p.m. tomorrow.

Day 1a drew 1,711 players and 1b drew 1,479 and 107 total players will return for Day 2.

This year's event saw 707 more entries that last year. Of course this year's field was bolstered by the second flight, but it still leaves the "PLO-lossus" as the biggest live PLO tournament in the world. The defending champion Ryan Laplante failed to bag, so there will be a new champion in this event.

Kyle Bowker, Dylan Linde, Mike Dentale, Felipe Ramos, Nacho Barbero, and the newest three-time WSOP bracelet winner Frank Kassela could not make Day 2.

Some old school faces managed to find a bag, with Chris Ferguson and Erick Lindgren each bagging in Day 1b. JC Tran (147,000) doubled up two times late and also bagged for Day 2 in search of his third WSOP bracelet.

Avi Lam, Tomas Gelezuinas, Rep Porter and Darren Taylor round out the top five stacks from Day 1b. Porter had an early move to Jason Mercier's (272,000) and spent the early part of the day holding a shorter stack, before exploding late and competing for the chip lead. Mercier managed to jump way in front early, hitting the 100,000 mark early in the day.

The players return tomorrow at 2 p.m. to take their shot at the second-ever $565 PLO bracelet at the WSOP.
