The day began with one new event at 12 p.m. The event in question was Event 19 $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha and it brought out Euro-rounders and wannabe Omaha masters. There were of course the usual pros including Max Pescatori and a few more pros when Day 2 begins at 2 p.m.
The nine women still competing for the title of Tom "durrr" Dwan bubbled the final table.
It's still a truly epic final table with Erick Lindgren leading the charge for his second bracelet and Barry Greenstein right behind in chips.
Be sure to tune it in at 3 p.m. as it promises to be a special event and perhaps the best final table of the summer (except perhaps the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E.).
The final 18 players of Event 16, Omaha Hi/Lo Eight-or-Better, also reconvened at 3 p.m. with the intimidating task of playing down to a winner. Strangely, the split game played out rather quickly and before you knew it Ted Forrest was heads-up against Andrew Brown.
Brown was severely out-chipped and managed one of the best comebacks we've seen this WSOP to beat Forrest and claim his first WSOP bracelet.
Event 20, $2,000 Limit Hold'em, kicked off at 5 p.m. and in a surprising turn of events was played exceptionally fast. The tournament went from 479 players to 125 in just nine levels of play.
The highlight of the event was Daniel Negreanu who held the chip lead for large portions of the day and played a standard Negreanu-style game, chatting up his entire table while taking most of their chips.
Negreanu finished the day with the chip lead and we'll see what he can accomplish on Day 2 of the Limit event, which kicks off tomorrow at 2 p.m.
