The record-setting field of 1,143 that began Event #17: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better at the 2023 World Series of Poker has been reduced to just 33 players, each with a chance to capture the bracelet on Day 3.

Kyle Burnside and Kyle Cartwright are the players with the best opportunity when play resumes at 1 p.m. local time on June 8. Burnside knocked out Jerry Wong and went on a hot run during the last level to finish up with a chip-leading stack of 2,345,000. Cartwright is right behind him with 2,310,000. It’s been nearly a decade since Cartwright won his World Series of Poker bracelet back in 2014, and he’s put himself in a position to add a second to his collection.

Erik Perry (1,935,000), Eric Varnado (1,750,000), and Qinghai Pan (1,680,000) round out the top five. But the most noise on Day 2, literally, came from the table shared by Ryan Scully, Ben Vidal, James Obst, and “Crazy” Mike Thorpe.

Thorpe characteristically kept the table talking as they took turns poking fun at each other and cracking jokes. Scully finished as the leader at this table with 1,300,000, while Vidal bagged up 980,000. Obst, already with a bracelet on his resume and back at the WSOP after a four-year hiatus while he pursued a tennis career, ended up with 720,000 and Thorpe 600,000.

Day 2 began with 394 players divided up between the conference center and Event Center of the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas, each trying to make it into the money. Mike Matusow, Barry Greenstein, and Alex Foxen had their day end early as only the top 172 finishers earned a payday.

Once the bubble burst, Shaun Deeb (145th), WSOP legend Perry Green (139th), Phil Hellmuth (127th), 2021 champion Connor Drinan (110th), and David Williams (53rd) all made the walk to the payout desk.

The plan for Day 3 is to play down to a champion. Action will pick up on Level 26 with blinds at 20,000-40,000 and limits of 40,000-80,000. Even in a limit game, pots can become massive and stack sizes swing widely on the bumpy road to the final table and onto the crowning of a new champion.

PokerNews will be back on June 8 from 1:00 p.m. local time, following all the action and providing updates until only one player remains out of this once-massive field.

Pederson Checks Down to a Win Against Garcia as End of Day Approaches

Nivel 25 : Blinds 15,000/30,000, 0 ante

Israel Garcia limped in the cut off and Arne Pederson checked his option in the big blind to see a flop of 58K. Both players checked through to a J on the turn.

Action checked through again and the dealer put the K out on the river.

Both players checked once more and Pederson turned over the 9973 which was good enough to take the pot down as Garcia tossed his cards into the muck on one of the last couple of hands to take place on Day 2.

Tournament officials announced that players will see four more hands before bagging up their chips.

Pantaleo, Bixler Chop Up Freedman

Nivel 25 : Blinds 15,000/30,000, 0 ante

Wendy Freedman was all in on a flop of 8K3 and was up against Mark Bixler and Giuseppe Pantaleo.

The turn came the 7 and Bixler bet, then called when Pantaleo raised. Pantaleo bet again on the 9 river and Bixler called.

Pantaleo showed AK42 for the low, while Bixler had A5K3 for two pair. Freedman had 8x3x for an inferior two pair and received a hug from John Cernuto as she headed for the payout desk with a few minutes left on Day 2.

Cartwright and Pantaleo Chop a Big Three-Way Pot

Nivel 25 : Blinds 15,000/30,000, 0 ante

On a completed board of 810K54 that saw three streets worth of bets and calls, Kyle Cartwright and Giuseppe Pantaleo chop a pot that included Mark Bixler.

Cartwright showed AA92 for the low side while Pantaleo turned over the A1076 for the nut straight to take the high.

Bixler, aware that he couldn't beat or match either hand, tossed his cards toward the muck and watched as Cartwright and Pantaleo split his chips.

Nivel 25 : Blinds 15,000/30,000, 0 ante

Kevin Hildebrand put out a bet on a board of 7366 and James Obst called.

The river came the J and Obst again called a bet from Hildebrand, who turned over Ax2x for the low.

Obst showed A10J2 for the same low and a pair of jacks. "Oh, you hit a jack on me," Hildebrand said. "I run so good."
