Super High Roller Bowl: Pot-Limit Omaha kicked off on Monday and drew a field of 38 entrants, generating a prize pool of $3,800,000. After seven levels played, just 17 players remain and Jared Bleznick leads with 1,735,000.
Already among the bigger stacks in the room, Bleznick scored a double elimination to really separate himself from the rest of the field. With a short stack all in and a starting stack pot-sized raise before him, Bleznick used several time-extensions before he committed a healthy portion of his own stack with just one overpair to the board and an inside straight draw. Bleznick found himself as more than a 2-to-1 favorite and held up to win the pot and cement himself on top of the chip counts for the rest of Day 1.
Second in chips is Ben Tollerene, who had his own memorable hand occur at the very end of the day after the other two tables in the room had already bagged their chips and left. In what was a pretty ordinary pot headed to the river, fireworks took place with two pot-sized raises. Tollerene had a straight flush and Laszlo Bujtas paid it off to send Tollerene from the middle of the pack to the second biggest stack.
Up top for the winner is $1,292,000, 500 PGT Points, and the Super High Roller Bowl: Pot-Limit Omaha ring. The top of the PGT Leaderboard is well represented as Isaac Haxton, Chris Brewer, and Stephen Chidwick are still in the hunt and each can take over the top spot with a victory.
