After seven levels on Day 2 of Event #18: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship, just 23 players advanced to Day 3 and they are lead by Ken Aldridge who enjoyed an incredible late surge of hands to bag well over a million.

On a day that saw Phil Ivey play his first WSOP event of the year as well as the money being reached, the remaining players are all guaranteed $14,459.

There are still big names galore even with the tournament down to three tables. Reigning WSOP Player of the Year Shaun Deeb along with multiple bracelet winners Mike Matusow, Robert Mizrachi, Frankie O'Dell, Mike Wattel, and David "Bakes" Baker are all in the hunt for another WSOP bracelet for their collection.

In fact, ten players who have won a total of 22 bracelets advanced to Day 4, but past success is by no means a guarantee of a future victory.

On Saturday at 3 p.m., the tournament will play down to a final table of six before the tournament is live streamed the following day.

Day 2 Recap

At least eight players jumped into the tournament at the start of Day 2 before registration closed. They included no less than 25 bracelets from both Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey, the latter of which was playing in his first WSOP event of 2019.

There was a steady stream of eliminations during Day 2 as play headed towards the money bubble. A total of 28 players would be guaranteed $14,959 with the first prize of $443,641.

Allen Kessler, Bryce Yockey, Roland Israelashvili, Anthony Zinno, Chris Ferguson, Paul Volpe and Dan Zack were all eliminated during the first two levels of play.

Yarron Bender was chip leader at the start of the day, but Sam Higgs appeared to top the counts midway through the day, as did Robert Mizrachi.

After Hellmuth’s elimination earlier on, Ivey returned from dinner and joined him on the rail after his two pair was beaten by the straight of Simeon Myers.

Bubble Bursts

2019 bracelet winner Derek McMaster was sent packing as the pace of eliminations slowed considerably. Carol Fuchs, Andrey Zaichenko, Timothy Flanders and Chris Amaral were all desperately trying to keep their heads above water before the bubble finally burst.

After Fuchs' elimination, play went hand-for-hand on the direct money bubble. And after a series of doubles and chops, Flanders was eventually forced all in from the big blind and looked in good shape to chip up and stay alive. That was until Mike Wattel hit one of the two remaining fours in the deck to eliminate Flanders and burst the bubble.

There was still time for Johannes Becker, Andrey Zaichenko, Kyle Miaso, Dylan Linde and Chris Amaral ($14,959) to be eliminated before the players bagged up for the day.

The remaining players will return on Saturday, June 9th at 3.p.m. to play down six ahead of the live streamed final table the following day. PokerNews will be there every step of the way catching all the action.

Matusow Scoops Benyamine

zedmaster84 • Nível 17: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

After scooping a big pot himself, David Benyamine was scooped in a smaller pot by Mike Matusow. The board came {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Benyamine check-called bets throughout to get shown {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} by Matusow.

"Back to seven big blinds, which I had all day long," Matusow exclaimed in table chat.

Chris Amaral
Chris Amaral

Within two hands, the stack of Chris Amaral has been reduced to zero and he has become the 24th place finisher.

In the first hand, a three-way three-bet pot headed to the {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop and Ville Haavisto checked in the big blind. Amaral bet, Robert Slezak raised in the cutoff and Haavisto called, as did Amaral. On the {4-Hearts} turn, action checked to Slezak and he bet, once again both opponents called.

The {9-Clubs} came on the river and Haavisto checked, as did Amaral. Slezak bet and Haavisto tank-folded with three big bets behind. Amaral tank-calleed and was shown the {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} for the nut flush. Amaral mucked {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{2-} for the nut straight and dropped to very few chips.

Those last few chips went in preflop the next hand with {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and Nick Guagenti looked him up with the {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}. The board came {9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and the deuces held up for Guagenti. Amaral had no qualifying low and hit the rail.

Dylan Linde

On the {j-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} turn, Dylan Linde bet out of the big blind with one T-1,000 chip behind and was called by Ken Aldridge and Yarron Bender. The {6-Spades} appeared on the river and Linde moved all in. Aldridge made it a full bet and Bender reluctantly calleed.

Linde showed {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Aldridge had {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}. Bender wanted to muck his cards, but as per all in showdown, his {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs} were revealed. Linde joined the rail in 25th place and takes home $14,959.

Two Triple Ups

zedmaster84 • Nível 17: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

David "Bakes" Baker was all in out of the single big blind and he faced Frankie O'Dell (cutoff) and Robert Slezak (button).

The {k-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop was checked and O'Dell bet the {j-Diamonds} turn, Slezak called. On the {7-Diamonds} river both checked and Baker had the best of it with {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades}.

The next player to triple up was Sam Higgs. He raised first to act and Richard Ashby called in the small blind. Andrew Yeh raised in the big blind and Higgs moved all in for 52,000, both opponents called. The {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop was checked, Ashby bet the {q-Diamonds} turn and Yeh folded.

Higgs turned over {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} for the nut flush, but had to dodge a nine or five, as Ashby had {9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for two pair. The {10-Clubs} river bricked and Higgs also tripled.
