Michael McKenna Chip Leader After Day 1 of the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship

Nível 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante
Michael McKenna
Michael McKenna

Ten hours of play have been completed and Day 1 of Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship is officially in the books. The day saw 175 players enter the tournament throughout the duration of the day and when the final hands were through, Michael McKenna (355,600) found himself as the chip leader among the 118 remaining.

Randy Ohel sits in second. Ohel was seen entering the tournament shortly after the first break. He chipped up steadily, reaching almost 100,000 in less than three hours of play. He was one of the chip leaders by the third break with around 136,000 and was flirting with the 200,000-mark by the last break of the night. The last two levels of the night saw that increase to his final resting total of 304,100

Third in chips and hot on his tail is Omaha Hi-Lo beast Kate Hoang, who found a double up early on and accumulated her stack to 291,800 over the course of the day without much resistance. Rounding out the likely top five in chips are Stephen Johnson (228,000) and Robert Cowen (215,700).

Other notable players to bag large stacks include Alex Foxen (170,600), Scott Bohlman (166,000), John Esposito (155,000), and Chris Vitch (126,100), who spent most of the day at or below starting stack before working his way to an above-average stack at the end of the day.

Many other entrants were not as fortunate. Eli Elezra, Daniel Negreanu, Jennifer Tilly, Erik Seidel, Roland Israelashvili, and Julien Martini were among the 57 players to be eliminated during today’s action.

Registration will remain open until the start of Day 2 at 2 p.m. local time on Saturday, 29th June and PokerNews will be on the floor covering all the action.

Hoang Building Steadily

Nível 8 : 500/1,000, 0 ante
Kate Hoang
Kate Hoang

A player raised to 2,000 from middle position and Kate Hoang called from the small blind. Alex Foxen defended his big blind and the three saw a flop of {7-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. Action checked to the original raiser who made a continuation-bet of 2,500. Hoang called and Foxen folded.

Heads-up action checked through the {q-Hearts} turn, bringing the {k-Diamonds} river. Hoang bet 4,000 and her opponent confirmed the amount before tossing in chips to call.

Hoang tabled {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, good for Broadway and the pot as her opponent sent his cards to the muck.

Teska Triples With Treys Full

Nível 7 : 400/800, 0 ante
Roger Teska
Roger Teska

There was four-way action on a flop of {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} with a player from middle position all in. Action was on the cutoff, who had a bet of 3,000 in front of him already. He folded, putting action onto Roger Teska on the button who had a bet of 15,000 already out. He called all in for less than the original shove to put action on the small blind, who was the final player in the hand. The small blind asked for a count and ultimately made the call.

Small Blind: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Middle Position: {a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Roger Teska: {5-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}

Teska was in the lead with a set of threes but both of his opponents had outs to hit straights and/or low hands. He was in shock, however, that not a single player had a flush draw.

The board ran out in his favor, {9-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and he earned the triple up. The small blind took down a small side pot with queens and nines while the player from middle position became one of only a few casualties in the tournament thus far.

Hoang Finds Double

Nível 6 : 300/600, 0 ante
Kate Hoang
Kate Hoang

Kate Hoang had the winning hand of {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Spades} still tabled on a board of {7-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} as the dealer counted her stack of 55,100 for her opponent to match. With the double, she now finds herself with over six figures and is a name to watch out for as the tournament progresses.

Hoang has made numerous WSOP Omaha Hi-Lo final tables throughout her career, including second-place finishes in last year's $1,500 Limit O8 event for $148,150 as well as the 2016 $3,000 PLO8 event for $182,282. She also made the final table in this very event last year, taking 8th place for $44,738.

Damjan Radanov
Damjan Radanov

A player raised from under the gun to 1,200 and Damjan Radanov three-bet from the hijack to 4,000. Action folded back to the original raiser, who called.

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{10-Spades} and both players checked. Radanov's opponent bet 2,000 on the {j-Hearts} turn and he asked to make sure of the amount before making the call.

The river came {9-Diamonds} and Radanov's opponent bet 3,000. He raised the pot to 21,800 and his opponent thought for some time before calling.

Radanov tabled {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades}, showing Broadway and taking the pot down with the nuts.

Bryce Yockey
Bryce Yockey

The cutoff opened to 1,200 and Bryce Yockey called from the button, as did George Linkenback in the small blind. The flop came {7-Spades}{2-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and action checked to Yockey, who bet 3,000. Linkenback called and the cutoff folded.

The turn was {3-Hearts} and Linkenback led out for 10,000. Yockey called. The river came {k-Spades} and Linkenback fired for another 20,000. Yockey called.

Linkenback tabled {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs} for a pair of threes with the nut low, while Yockey showed {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} to make a pair of tens with the nut low and take three-quarters of the pot.

Obst Gets Value With Boat

Nível 3 : 200/300, 0 ante
James Obst
James Obst

James Obst was in a heads up pot from the cutoff against an opponent in the hijack on a board of {5-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. There were bets of 1,600 and 2,000 in front of each player from previous streets and Obst put in a pot-sized bet of 7,700. His opponent thought for a little and made the call.

The river was {5-Diamonds} and Obst's opponent checked to him again. He bet 17,000 and received a call after about two minutes.

Obst tabled {a-Spades}{j-Spades}{j-Clubs}{4-Spades} for jacks full and took down the pot.

Elezra Scoops One

Nível 3 : 200/300, 0 ante
Eli Elezra
Eli Elezra

Eli Elezra limped from under the gun, creating a string of limps for the two players to his left, the latter of which was Erik Seidel. Action then folded to Jason Mercier, who completed his small blind. The player in the big blind checked and five players went to a flop of {2-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}.

Mercier led out for 1,100 and received a call from only Elezra. Both players checked a turn of {k-Diamonds} and Mercier checked again on the {a-Diamonds} river. Elezra bet 1,600 and Mercier thought for a bit. He eventually asked for confirmation of the number before reluctantly throwing chips in the pot.

Elezra tabled {9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} for a flush and an eighty-six, both of which Mercier affirmed were good as he mucked his hand resulting in a scooped pot for Elezra.

Bax Scoops One

Nível 1 : 100/200, 0 ante
Cliff Josephy
Cliff Josephy

With action six handed, Cliff Josephy was in the cutoff and called a raise from the under-the-gun player. The player on the button and the small blind both called and action went four ways to a flop of {9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. Action checked to Josephy, who bet 2,500 and received only one call from the original raiser.

The turn came {3-Hearts} and both players checked. The original raiser fired 3,500 on the river and Josephy called.

"Ace-six and ace-eight," Josephy's opponent said, stating his high and low hands, respectively as he tabled {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Josephy tabled {10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, good for a six high straight and a sixty-five to take down the entire pot.
