Tom Dwan Leads $10k Pot Limit Omaha Championship After Day 2Published on July 3rd, 2010 7:53 am EST
Tom Dwan rolled through Day 2 of the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship on Friday, finishing the day as the decisive tournament chip leader heading into the third and final day of play on Saturday.
Tom “durrrr” Dwan managed to finish Day 2 with over 900k in chips, which is over 300k more than his next closest competitor, Julio Marines (570k).
Dwan has a number of very big bracelet bets on the go, and you can be sure that the people on the other side of these bets are a bit nervous tonight.
Dwan came very close to winning his first World Series of Poker bracelet in early June after finishing in second place in Event #11 ($1,500 No Limit Hold’em). Dwan would have made millions from side bets had he taken down that tournament - a number of people breathed a big sign of relief when “durrrr” came up short.
The people on the other side of Dwan’s bracelet bets have to be more than a bit worried tonight though, given the size of his chip lead heading into Day 3. Dwan destroyed practically every table that he sat at during Day 2, mercilessly taking advantage of the people who were trying to squeak into the money.
There are a few big names left in this event who will be looking to make things difficult for Dwan on Saturday. They are:
-Daniel Alaei, 330k chips
-Phil Hellmuth, 330k chips
-Jason Mercier, 256k chips
-Alexander Kravchenko, 245k chips
It should be very interesting to see how Dwan does on Saturday, especially given how much is on the line for him. Not only does he stand to win millions from various side bets with a victory, but he is also chasing his very first World Series of Poker bracelet.
Dwan’s chase for a bracelet will definitely be the big story on Saturday.
