Day 29 of the 2021 World Series of Poker may not have seen any winners crowned with WSOP bracelets, but there were three events taking place that thrilled the attending fans and fellow players, with the 25 players who remain in the PLO High Roller close to glory.

Ben Lamb piled up the biggest amount of chips on the second day of action in the $25,000-entry PLO High Roller, with 148 total entries whittled down to just 25 survivors by the close of play. Lamb (3,885,000) has a big lead over Nathan Zimnik (2,535,000) and David Benyamine (2,340,000), who are his nearest rivals, but there are big names throughout the remaining players.

In the top 10 chipcounts alone, half the field already have bracelets to their name, with Shaun Deeb (1,975,000) past wins of four former bracelets the biggest. Just outside the top 10, Jeremy Ausmus (1,280,000) will be looking for his third if he can reach the final table tomorrow.

Players to fall short on Day 2 included Chance Kornuth, Scott Seiver, Joseph Cheong, Ben Yu, Day 1 leader Eric Kurtzman, Will Jaffe and Dash Dudley, who won’t add to his two WSOP wins of the past in this event.
