Late registration will remain open through the end of the dinner break in this event, so players are still walking into the Amazon room at a steady rate to take their seats. Among them are PLO cash game veteran Rick "Big Rick" Ellerman, media personality Joey Ingram, and Annee Ngo who is fresh off a deep run in the first PLO tournament of this year's WSOP, Event #18 $565 pot-limit Omaha, where she finished in 24th place.

"They're all scary boards in this game!" said a player at Men "The Master" Nguyen's table as Nguyen pulled in a pot.

Nguyen laughed in agreement and stacked the chips on top of his stack.

The Vietnamese-American has two cashes to his name this year, the best of which was a 60th-place finish in Event #16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed. He will be looking to add to his seven bracelets this year. The last time he topped a WSOP field was back in 2010 when he won the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship for $394,807.

With about 1,500 chips already in the middle and the board reading {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, the big blind checked to Raymond Davis who tossed out a single yellow 1,000 chip. One player behind him in middle position folded, after a few moments of thought, the big blind did the same and Davis took the pot.

Joey Ingram Up and Running

Nível 1 : 25/50, 0 ante

The flop came {6-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Ingram's opponent check-called a bet of 825. The turn was the {k-Clubs} and the player checked again, but folded this time to a bet of 1,975 from Ingram.
