Wednesday was a busy day for the WSOP with several events in the series kicking off on the day. One of those was Omaha Event #66, where the Brazilian had a solid day one going into day two and getting closer to the bracelet.
Of the 1,125 entrants in Event #66 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, 168 entered Day Two. There are two Brazilians in the qualifiers: Felipe Jimenez and Leonardo Teixeira. The former gets the best chips to enter the tournament.
Frustrated by flight problems after returning to Brazil, the miner returned to Las Vegas and “free-to-play” Event 66 buy-in at the cash game tables. Felipe Jimenez managed to improve things and advance to Day 2 with 130,000 in chips. ITM has had the opportunity to exit with more chips.
Leonardo Teixeira advanced to Day 2 with 63,000 in chips. The tournament is led by American Nick Guagenti, who has 656,000 in chips. Stars such as Robert Campbell, Anthony Zinno and Connor Drinan were also among the contestants.
Day 2 of the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or better continues today at 17:00. ET and all qualifiers have been awarded a $2,409 prize pool, with the big winner taking home $259,549. The tournament will continue with blinds 3,000/6,000.
