Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Jeff Lisandro limped in from the cutoff and Tom Schneider raised on the button. The players in the blinds folded and Lisandro called. The two went heads up to a flop of {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and Lisandro checked. Schneider fired a continuation-bet and Lisandro called.

The turn was {3-Hearts} and Lisandro check-called a second bullet from Schneider. The river came {q-Hearts} and both players checked.

Jeff Lisandro: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Tom Schneider: {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{9-Spades}

Both players chopped the pot and took back their bets as Lisandro had the nut flush and Schneider the nut low.

Despite the chop, both players have added to their stacks significantly since play began.

Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Phil Hellmuth: {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs} / {4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts} / {3-Clubs}
Nicholas Julia: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts} / {4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{4-Hearts} / {3-Spades}

Phil Hellmuth was the bring in and Nicholas Julia completed. Hellmuth called. On fourth street, Hellmuth check-called a bet from Julia.

Julia led on fifth and Hellmuth called. He bet again on sixth and Hellmuth raised. Julia reraised and Hellmuth said something along the lines of wanting to continue to raise until his stack was in. Julia obliged.

When cards were turned up on sixth, Hellmuth had clinched the low with {8-}{7-}{4-}{3-}{a-} and Julia had the high locked up with a full house, sixes full of fours.

"We did all that for two thousand, (or) 1,500," Julia said as he took back his chips and collected his share of the pot.

"It was fun, though," said Hellmuth.

"It was fun," Julia agreed.

It’s time for Day 2 of Event #51: $2,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better, when, at 2 p.m. this afternoon, 128 players will return with the hopes of playing through another ten levels to accomplish the ultimate goal of winning a WSOP gold bracelet and $213,750.

After Day 1, there was a virtual three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard, with Russian Andrey Zaichenko (135,700) just ahead of the Americans Shaun Deeb (134,700) and Tom Schneider (134,200).

The rest of the field contains notables such as Roland Israelashvili (117,700), Eli Elezra (87,300), and Dzmitry Urbanovich (85,500) in the thick of things with sizeable stacks. There are also a lot of bracelet winners coming in with shorter stacks, with Brandon Shack-Harris (31,000), Marco Johnson (30,600), WSOP Player of the Year 2019 contender Dan Zack (29,300), and Owais Ahmed (25,600) just a few of the many household names entering the day with hopes of running their below-average stacks up into contention.

There are 10 one-hour levels scheduled for the day, with 15-minute breaks after every two levels and a one-hour dinner break after Level 16. The bubble will burst at some point through the day, with 61 players set to make it in the money.

Who will make it through to Day 3? PokerNews will be covering all the action as that question is answered in the exciting nature of mixed game poker.
