Event #26: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Joe Cada Looking to Continue Hot Summer in Day 2 of Event #26: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Joe Cada

This year the turnout for Event #26: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha was just shy of last year's, reeling in 968 runners. After 10 levels of play yesterday in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, there were 100 hopefuls finding a bag and moving onto Day 2 today which starts at 12 p.m. local time.

One name that stands out from the pack is 2009 Main Event Champion Joe Cada. Cada has three bracelets, all in no-limit hold'em, with one of them coming earlier this summer in Event #3: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout. He joined this tournament later in the day, but instantly started to build a stack and will be going into Day 2 with above average chips of 57,800.

The biggest stacks that comprise the top five going into Day 2 include current leader Ryan Goindoo (196,000), Ivaylo Sivinov (192,900), Clint Montfort (173,900), Thayer Rasmussen (142,000), and Richard Tuhrim (141,700).

There are some other notables who made it through all ten levels yesterday, a list that includes Brazil's own Felipe Ramos (81,100), Germany's Martin Finger (72,200), Robert Cowen (58,900), Mark Dube (40,000), Mikhail Semin (44,700), and bracelet winner Calen McNeil (45,500).

Play will resume with Level 11 (600/1,200 blinds) and levels will be 60 minutes in length. The players will be getting a 15-minute break after every two levels of play, with a 60-minute dinner break coming after the sixth level. There will be ten levels played before players move on to the third and final day of play.
