Is event 55 – the $10,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha World Championship – Tom Dwan’s best hope for a first bracelet, big prize money and lucrative side bet payouts? 
 
It certainly appeared so late Friday night as InfoPowa went to press, leaving Dwan holding a chip lead of 560 000, comfortably ahead of his nearest rival Jonathan Cantor on 420,000 and the average chip stack count of 199,615.
 
The duo were leading a field of 52 – all that remained of 346 original entrants in this hotly contested event as it battled through level 16 on Day 2. Another well known name – Phil Hellmuth – was also still active further back in the field and hunting a record-breaking twelfth bracelet.
 
Eliminations during the night included Annette Obrestad, Chris Ferguson, Dan Heimiller, Vitaly Lunkin, Ted Lawson, David Benyamine and Vanessa Selbst
