Good afternoon and welcome to Day 2 of Event #26 $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. This tournament attracted 589 entries thus creating a prize pool of $1,607,970. Last night, 138 players made it through the first day of frantic four-card action and leading all of them was Joseph Ressler who bagged up 122,100 chips. Ressler has big time World Series of Poker (WSOP) experience, finishing fifth for $105,967 in the $5,000 Six-Handed version of this event last year.
Today's goal is to make it through the day and if anyone does that they are going to be earning a pay check. The top 63 people are going to receive a pay day with $5,226 guaranteed for making it into the money. The first-place prize of $361,797 will be fought for tomorrow.
Other players to keep your eyes on include WSOP bracelet winners Matt 'Pez' Perrins, Galen Kester and Robert Williamson III. Defending champion Sam Stein is also in the field, as is the 700-chip stack of Phil Ivey (although it's still a question if will see the man himself).
Play continues at 14:00 PM and we will be bringing all of the very best action at PokerNews.
