Dia 2 Terminado
Day 2 of Event #32: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Mix began with 224 players remaining from the starting field of 688. After another 10 levels of play, there are still 29 players left in the hunt. Leading the way into Day 3 is Howard Smith with 466,500. He is followed by Erle Mankin with 465,000, Yueqi Zhu with 448,500 and Igor Sharaskin with 445,000.
Smith was among the chip leaders at the dinner break, then things started to go downhill. However, a quick rush catapulted Smith back to the top of the counts. The key hand came against Day 1 chip leader Daniel Zack. The chips went into the middle after the turn and Smith held a full house. Zack had flopped a flush, but was no longer in the lead for the high. He did have a plethora of outs to make a low and had outs to win the high, but the river was a brick, sending the massive pot Smith's way.
Other who bagged today include Vladimir Shchemelev (256,000), Mark Herm (200,000), Nikolai Yakovenko (120,000), Allyn Shulman (109,500), Allen Kessler (74,500), and John Racener (27,000).
Play resumes on Sunday at 2 p.m. with hopes of reaching a winner, though the most likely scenario is another 10 levels will be played, with the remaining players returning on Monday for a Day 4.
