Chris Vitch

The month of June is coming to a close in this historic 2019 World Series of Poker but that does not mean the action is finished. Today marks the penultimate day of Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship.

After registration closed at the beginning of Day 2, the field size of 193 was locked, with a race to the finish in true freezeout fashion the rest of the journey. Day 2 brought an unusual structure to the tournament with the day finishing after only six one-hour levels of play. That means 43 players will return today with their sights on the final table. Of those 43 players, 29 will find themselves finishing in the money.

Entering the day atop the leaderboard is two-time bracelet winner Chris Vitch (795,000). The next two players behind him are bracelet winners Scott Bohlman (628,000) and Bryce Yockey (535,000). Though these three players are the only ones above the half-million mark, they are not the only bracelet winners in this world-class field, with Brian Hastings (394,000), Steven Wolansky (389,000), Nick Schulman (380,000) and Joe Hachem (346,000) all hoping to add more jewelry to their collections.

The start time for the day has been pushed forward, meaning cards will be in the air at 12 noon local time. Play is scheduled to continue until the field reaches six players, but with 43 remaining, that could mean a full 10 levels are needed to hit that mark. Stay tuned to PokerNews for all the pertinent news and updates on play as Day 3 of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship unfolds.
