Today saw Dan Hirleman emerge at the top of the chip counts at the end of Day 2 of Event #14: $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi-Low with 353,000 in chips. He was followed closely by Jim Bucci who ended the day with 299,000. Rounding out the top 3 was Alex Luneau with 295,000.

Play started with 220 players out of the original 1,036 taking their seats and they would make the money early in the evening when Frankie O'Dell knocked out David Nicholson to burst the bubble. The defending champion in the event, Calen McNeil, would enter Day 2 with just 7,400 in chips but he battled his way to a respectable stack of 164,000 and will enter Day 3 with an excellent chance to defend his title.

Other notables with a shot at the bracelet include Greg Raymer (202,000), Chris Tryba (68,000), Konstantin Puchkov (289,000), Kal Raichura (276,000), Daniel Makowsky (213,000), Maria Ho (122,000) and Gary Benson (168,000).

There were plenty of names who would make the money including Erik Seidel (34th - $7,146), Mickey Appleman (36th - $7,146), Robert Mizrachi (43rd - $6,041), Dan Kelly (48th - $5,160), Toto Leonidas (55th - $4,461), Perry Green (61st - $4,461), Stephen Chidwick (72nd - $3,916), John Kabbaj (83rd - $3,132), Allen Cunningham (97th - $2,881), Eric Baldwin (101st - $2,657), and Matthew Ashton (107th - $2,657).

Those who would start the day with a stack but fall short of making the money included the likes of Barry Greenstein, Bryan Micon, Michael Mizrachi, Frank Kassela, Phil Ivey, George Danzer, John Hennigan, and Tom Koral.

The final 26 players will return for Day 3 tomorrow at 1 p.m. in the Amazon Room. PokerNews will be there from start to finish so tune in to see who will emerge with the $283,275 first place prize money.
