Tuesday June 28 , 2011 : Event 42: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship is another WSOP competition that will go to 4 days after failing to find a champion in the scheduled three.
At level 28 in the early hours of Monday morning play was halted with 4 players still at the table: Ben Lamb (4,335,000), John Shipley (2,705,000), Sami Kelopuro (2,155,000) and Christopher King (1,645,000).
The surviving quartet were all that remained of the 38 players entering the third day of play on Sunday, still two places away from the money bubble. The elimination of Humberto Brenes and Jyri Merivirta fixed that problem, and the rest of the field, now in the cash, warmed up the action, with Sami Kelopuro and Ben Lamb building impressive stacks.
Notable names headed for the exit during the day included Sam Stein, Justin Schwartz, Mike McDonald, David Kitai, Joao Barbosa and Matt Glantz.
Lamb appears to be the man to watch, dominating much of the play and holding an almost 2 million chip lead.
