Event #41 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better had them lining up for another chance at a gold WSOP bracelet. Some of the faces seen in the field were Jeffrey Lisandro, Mickey Appleman, Soheil Shamseddin, Brent Carter, Jerrod Ankenman, Kathy Liebert, Erick Lindgren, J.J. Liu, Eric Lynch, Victor Ramdin, Neil Channing, Chris Reslock, Marcel Luske, Erica Schoenberg, Charles Shoten, Brandon Cantu, Scott Clements, Raymond Davis, Roland DeWolfe, Allen Cunningham, Scott Epstein, Freddy Deeb, Eli Elezra, Annie Duke, Jacobo Fernandez, Scott Fischman, Kristy Gazes, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey, Kirill Gerasimov, Sirous Jamshidi, Brett Jungblut, David Williams and John Kabbaj. And when 12 noon came, Jack Effel gave the directive to "Shuffle Up and Deal!" to start things off.

This event does have rebuys that players can take advantage of until the end of level 4 by which time all chips must be used. If you get to "0" after that, then you are gone. Early exits included Jon Friedberg, George Lind III, Tom Dwan, Jason Mercier and Phil Ivey. Andy Black directed Barry Shulman to the exit after making a better two pair (10's and 3's) than Shulman. Action was cut off at 12:20 AM, and the 157 players bagged their chips to return tomorrow.
