6/14/10 – Event 25 – the $10,000 buy-in Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better Championship entered its second day on Sunday and by 11pm Vegas time had played down from an original entry field of 212 to 36 pros on level 15.
Still in the running, albeit relatively low on the chip stacks was Phil Hellmuth, chasing his 12th bracelet and a new record…and of course the $488,237 first prize that goes with this event.
This is a stellar-heavy competition; among the top 20 going into Day 2 were Eugene Katchalov, David Benyamine, Sammy Farha, Alexander Kostritsyn, George Danzer, Vladamir Shchemelev, Jeffrey Lisandro and Brock Parker.
Late night Sunday Sergey Altbregin held the chip lead on 435,000, with Sammy Farha on 380,000 and Eric Baldwin on 285,000.
Already despatched to the rail are 2008 Champ Benyamine, Vladimir Schmelev, Scotty Nguyen, John Monnette, Jen Harman, Robert Mizrachi, Phil Ivey and Barry Greenstein.
