Wsop Event 22 Day 2

Thursday, June 16 2011  $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha entered its second day of action with 117 survivors from an original field of 1,071 that created a prize pool of $1.44 million.
Among the first day's casualties were Victor Ramdin, John Juanda, Phil Hellmuth, Matt Stout, Liv Boeree, Annette Obrestad, Tom Schneider, Allen Cunningham, David Benyamine, Berry Johnston and Isaac Haxton.
Juha Vilkki held the chip lead at the start of the second day's play, well ahead of his nearest opposition but with plenty of strong opposition still active and threatening such as Michael and Nick Binger, David Chiu and Bill Chen.
Just after midnight Tuesday the field was down to 13 following the elimination of Ryan Welch, and Juha Vilkki remained the boss with a chip lead of almost 60 000 over his nearest rivals, Elie Payan and Rafe Kibrit.
