Andrew Yeh Leads Stacked Final Two Tables of Event 9: $10k Omaha 8 or Better Championship; Hellmuth Looking For #16
Day 2 of Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship at the 2021 World Series of Poker has officially ended with Andrew Yeh leading the final 18 players going into Day 3. Yeh will be looking to improve on his 11th place finish from the same event in 2019.
Day 2 began with 73 players, which included a few new faces who opted to register at the beginning of the day instead of playing Day 1. This brought the total number of entries to 134 — generating a prize pool of $1,193,600 with a first-place prize of $317,076.
The deep structure and long levels of this championship event ensured a slow and steady pace, which led to gradual eliminations throughout the day. A few notables who began the day but failed to make the money include Daniel Negreanu, Shaun Deeb, David Benyamine, Bart Hanson, defending champion Frankie O'Dell, and Mike Matusow — who successfully nursed a short stack for much of the day before eventually succumbing to Chris Vitch late in the day.
Ryan Laplante, Ben Yu, and Mark Gregorich all managed to sneak into the money for a min-cash shortly after Tom Koral bubbled.
There are 30 World Series of Poker gold bracelets between remaining combatants, which of course includes Phil Hellmuth, who will be looking to add number 16. Others still in contention include Brian Rast, Ken Aldridge, Paul Volpe, Dylan Linde, and Robert Mizrachi, who just placed third in Event #5: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better a few days ago.
Day 3 is set to resume at 3 p.m. tomorrow and play down until just five players remain. Be sure to stick with PokerNews as we continue to bring you all the scoops, quarters, and knockouts here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
