Michael Chow leads the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo World Championship at the World Series of Poker. He will lead the final 23 players into Day 3 on Monday, where they will play down to a winner. Chow has already won a bracelet in Omaha Hi-Lo earlier this series.
Close behind are Abe Mosseri, Sammy Farha and Eugene Katchalov – who at one point was down to literally on 1,000 chip. He managed to double up in the small blind, double again on the button then tripled soon after.
Todays’s play was notably less social than Day 1 with the money bubble looming at 27 players. Sixty players returned after the dinner break, with many able to concentrate on the tournament rather than sweat the action of the Lakers vs. Celtics game.
Dale Phillips was the unfortunate bubble boy, he was beat by Jean-Robert Bellande when tabled jacks full. It wasn’t until 2:45 a.m. (PT) that the field finally reached the money bubble and still had another level to play.
Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, Tony G., Jennifer Harman and David Benyamine all made deep runs but failed to make the money.
