The 2024 U.S. Poker Open continued at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada with Event #2: $10,100 No-Limit Hold'em.

Jesse Lonis bagged the chip lead and holds over 26% of the chips in play as seven players remain. Kristina Holst, Rodger Johnson, Aram Zobian, Victoria Livschitz, Sean Winter, and Joey Weissman round out the players who will return for the final day as play resumes at 12 p.m. PT on Wednesday, April 10 with the delayed final table stream beginning at 2 p.m. PT on PokerGO.

The 99-entrant field created a prize pool of $990,000 and the top 15 finishers earned a piece of it. Justin Zaki and David Peters were both eliminated during hand-for-hand play with 17 players left, and that sent the remaining players into the money. Among those to cash were John Riordan (15th), Brock Wilson (13th), Stephen Chidwick (12th), Matthew Wantman (10th), and Shannon Shorr (9th).

Later in the night, Bill Klein got his chips in with ace-nine and ran into Livschitz's pocket nines. The runout failed to provide any help and he was eliminated in eighth place as seven players converged on a single table. The final table exchanged chips around as Zobian doubled and Lonis added to his lead through the end of Level 16, when the seven remaining players bagged to return for the streamed final table.

Each player has locked up $39,600 but all eyes will be on the $252,450 first-place prize, 252 PGT points, and Event #2 mini Golden Eagle trophy.

The eventual winner will also soar to the top of the U.S. Poker Open leaderboard. The player that earns the most PGT points during this series will be crowned the U.S. Poker Open champion and receive the Golden Eagle Trophy and a $25,000 PGT Passport.
