Guilherme Barbosa

Pot-limit Omaha is notorious for being an action game, so it's not at all surprising that chips flew around at a frantic pace on Day 1 of Event #49: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed. A total of 630 players took to the felt in this tournament, a number which surpassed last year's field size of 580.

The money bubble will likely be reached in fairly short order when play resumes on Monday at 2 p.m. local time. There will be 127 players taking chips out of the bag; 95 will cash and a min-cash is good for $4,499, but all eyes are on the $362,185 top prize and accompanying WSOP gold bracelet.

At the front of the pack is Guilherme Barbosa with 256,600, and nipping at his heels are Chino Rheem (214,400), Gionni DeMers (211,300), Samuel Higgs (200,100), the only other players who bagged stacks in excess of 200,000 chips. Next behind is Juha Helppi with 194,500.

More than a few well-known players bagged chips at the end of the night, including former WSOP Player of the Year Jeff Madsen (103,700) and recent bracelet winners Nadar Kakhmazov (154,200), Dmitry Yurasov (71,400) and Loren Klein (37,900). David Williams (84,800), Aron Dermer (85,800), Jason Wheeler (126,100), Mike Sexton (63,000), and James Obst (32,700) will all be back for Day 2 as well.

However, not all the familiar faces were fortunate enough to make it to the end of Day 1 play, including Daniel Negreanu, Matt Stout, Alan Le, and Jason Mercier, Chris Hunichen, Joe Hachem, Chance Kornuth, Noah Schwartz, Justin Bonomo, Dan Heimiller, Ryan Laplante, and defending champion Viatcheslav Ortynskiy.
