Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and the 2017 World Series of Poker for Day 3 of Event #51: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship.

Monday saw 207 players take to the felt to play this inaugural PLO8 Championship, and now just 15 players remain all eyeing the coveted gold WSOP bracelet and $511,147 first prize.

On Tuesday, players headed to the rail at a rapid rate. Ben Lamb was the last out before the cash, with Fabrice Soulier (32nd), Scott Clements (30th), Tommy Chen (25th), Dan Zack (24th), David "ODB" Baker (22nd), Dario Sammartino (21st), Phil Hui (20th), Ari Engel (17th) and John Monnette (16th) all busting to make the money before play concluded.

Leading those 15 players is Josh Arieh, who bagged the chip lead with a massive 1,695,000, giving him a wide lead over second-place Bruce Yamron who collected 1,040,000. Most famous for his third-place finish in the WSOP Main Event in 2004, Arieh already has two bracelets. He took down a $3,000 Limit Hold'em in 1999 and a $2,000 Pot-Limit Omaha in 2005. He's in prime position for his third after bagging more than 15 percent of the total chips in play.

Ray Henson sits atop the the WSOP Player of the Year race and heads into today with 588,000 while Chris Ferguson bagged 486,000 and sits seventh in those same rankings. Both players will be looking to extend their lead or close the gap with a strong result today. Also still in contention is Kate Hoang who took second place in the $3,000 buy-in version of this tournament last year, while Bryce Yockey, Mark Herm and Andrey Zaichenko will all be looking for their first WSOP bracelet.

Play resumes at 2:00 p.m. (PDT) with the PokerNews Live Reporting Team providing continuous live updates of all the action as we play down to a final table of eight, and then hopefully to a winner. So stay tuned right here for all the Event #51 action, and everything else from the 2017 World Series of Poker.
