Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Set to Start Soon

In less than an hour today at the 2014 WSOP, the first of two Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low events on the schedule will get underway as Day 1 of Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low will be starting. Last year, this event drew 936 players and it would ultimately be Jarred Graham prevailing over Marco Johnson to win the $255,942 first-place prize and gold bracelet.

In addition to Graham and Johnson, there were a number of notables who made deep runs last year. Barry Greenstein would finish in third place and Loni Harwood and Perry Green would join him at the final table. Also making the money were Leif Force, Jeff Lisandro, Mej Judah, Chris Bell, Matt Giannetti, Mike Matusow, David Sands, Owais Ahmed, Allen Cunningham, Jonathan Little, and Jason Mercier.

We expect several of those names to take place in the action here today — aside from Mercier, of course, who currently leads the Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players Championship. Players will be playing 10 levels, with a dinner break at the end of the sixth level. They will start with 4,500 in chips and one-hour levels.

PokerNews will be here throughout the day letting you know who is here, what their stacks look like, and who makes it through. Tune in to find out who is scooping the pots!

Nearly a thousand players showed up today to take part in Event #48: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low. The total number of 991 entrants was the highest this event had seen in the past five years, and by the time play ended early Wednesday morning Cale Maclean was leading the way with 130,300 in chips. He holds a comfortable lead over a pack of players hovering near the 100,000-chip mark including Tyler Patterson (99,100) and Jeff Madsen (97,000). Others near the top are Yueqi "Rich" Zhu (99,800), Sonny Osmond (99,600), Michel Abecassis (91,000), and Dmitrii Valouev (88,900).

Other notables to move onto Day 2 play included Phil Ivey, David Chiu, Chris Bell, Ari Engel, Maria Ho, Ben Yu, Steven Wolansky, Mark Gregorich, Joe Serock, Brett Jungblut, Matt Waxman, John Racener, and Bryan Campanello.

Players who were not as fortunate as the surviving group and found themselves on the rail before the end of the day included Greg Raymer, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, David Williams, Erik Seidel, Stephen Chidwick, Eric Buchman, Paul Volpe, Justin Bonomo, Barry Greenstein, and Gavin Smith.

There are 152 players remaining and with only 117 making the money, the tournament should hit the bubble shortly after play resumes. Cards will be back in the air at 1 p.m. and PokerNews will be there for all the action. Tune in to find out who makes the money and who comes up short and who advances to a WSOP final table!
