The 2024 PGT PLO Series presented by PLO Mastermind continued at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada with Event #2: $7,600 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty.

Finland's Eelis Parssinen bagged the chip lead and holds over 29% of the chips in play as six players remain. Isaac Kempton, Lautaro Guerra, Ronald Keijzer, Josh Arieh, and Bradley Ruben round out the players who will return for the final day as play resumes at 12 p.m. PT on Friday, March 22 with the delayed final table stream beginning at 1 p.m. PT on PokerGO.

The 103-entrant field created a prize pool of $772,500, with $257,500 of it going towards the $2,500 bounties on each player, while the top 15 finishers earned a piece of the $515,000 going to the regular prize pool.

Sam Soverel was the unfortunate bubble boy when he got the rest of his short stack in and ran into Guerra's aces. Among those to cash were Joao Simao (15th), Matthew Wantman (14th), Maxx Coleman (12th), and Event #1 winner Allan Le (9th). Le, Yockey, Simao, Kyle Merron, and Andrei Mitsiuk all picked up their second cash of the series.

Parssinen held the top stack for much of the latter half of the day, while Keijzer ran up his stack from crumbs to make the final table. The Dutch player was nearly out the door when he was all in preflop and his opponent flopped quad aces, but the river gave Keijzer a royal flush to survive in dramatic fashion. Keijzer would later find himself with just over one big blind, and he rivered a straight flush to sextuple his stack on his way to the final table.

Bryce Yockey would fall in eighth place against Kempton before seven players converged on a single table. Artem Maksimov was the short stack and would soon get his chips in against Kempton. Kempton made a boat and Maksimov was eliminated in seventh place, while the six remaining players bagged to return for the streamed final table.

Each player has locked up $25,750 but all eyes will be on the $131,325 first-place prize, 175 PGT points, and Event #2 trophy.
