Day 3 of Event #14 Set to Resume

Calen McNeil - will he defend his title?
Calen McNeil - will he defend his title?

Action in Event #14: $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi-Low is set to resume in a little more than an hour here at the Rio and it is Dan Hirleman from Tempe, Arizona who will head into play with the chip lead after finishing with 353,000 in chips last night. James Bucci from Hollywood, Maryland sits in second place.

Those two will have to contend with a field that includes a number of WSOP bracelet holders including Konstantin Puchkov, Frankie O'Dell, Dan Heimiller, Gary Benson, and 2004 WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Raymer. One WSOP bracelet holder that deserves special mention is Calen McNeil who won this very event at the 2013 WSOP. McNeil started Day 2 with a very short stack but grinded his way into respectable position and has a very good shot at defending his title.

Others still in contention include Maria Ho and Chris Tryba who will both have to overcome short stacks if they want to win first-place prize money of $283,275. Seating assignments and chip counts can be found here: Day 3 Seating Assignments.

Play will resume at 1 p.m. PDT. PokerNews will be here until we crown a winner so check in frequently for our live updates.
