Event #3: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Welcome to Day 2 of Event #3: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Loren Klein has the lead, but several strong players lurk.

Golden, Colorado native Loren Klein brings a hefty chip lead into Day 2 of Event #3: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha here at the 2014 World Series of Poker, but several scary players are just one big pot away from stealing all of the headlines.

Klein's 133,900 is easily best, but we all know how volatile PLO can be. Keeping that in mind, John O'Shea (89,000; $1 million in live cashes), Steve Billirakis (73,800; $2.5 million in live cashes and two bracelets), and Phil Laak (65,700; $3 million in live cashes, one bracelet) are all players to keep a close eye on today. Of course, in Laak's case, he can steal headlines for reasons other than chip accumulation, as his colorful table demeanor is often a highlight.

Cards will be in the air at 1 p.m., and blinds will begin at 600/1,200. We're scheduled for 10 levels of play today, along with a 60-minute dinner break after Level 6. First place will receive just over $200,000 for this event. Stay tuned here on PokerNews as we find out who takes pole position for Day 3 tomorrow.
