Day 1 of Event #25: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better is in the books. Hal Klein leads the way with 77,100 in chips. He is followed by Luis Velador (59,100) and Pat Pezzin (58,400). The starting field of 241 has been winnowed down to 152, all of whom are looking to the first-place prize of $277,519 and a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.

A star-studded field turned out to play this event. Phil Ivey (23,800 in chips), Erik Seidel (12,200), Andy Bloch (30,100), Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier (25,400), Tom Schneider (23,400), and 13-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth (16,700) all survived the day will return for day 2 on Friday. Calen McNeil, the WSOP’s most recent Omaha Eight-or-Better bracelet winner, also entered this event, and finished the day with 14,400.

They were joined at the start of the day by several other big names. Jason Mercier, Brian Rast, Nick Schulman, David Bach, “Johnny World” Hennigan, and current player of the year leader Daniel Negreanu all started the tournament but busted out on day one.

Play resumes at 2 p.m. Friday in the Rio. PokerNews.com will be here all day to bring you live updates as Event #25 continues. For now, we'll leave you with Lynn Gilmartin who has all the highlights from around the Rio.

Seven More Hands

[user139916] • Taso 8

Each table will play seven more hands before bagging and tagging for the night.

Doft Scoops Kostritsyn

[user139916] • Taso 8

Roman Verenko raised from under the gun and Alexander Kostritsyn three-bet from the next seat over. Elie Doft (who took sixth place last year in this event) called from the big blind, Verenko called, and the flop came down {7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts}.

Action was checked to Kostritsyn who bet. Doft raised, Verenko folded, and Kostritsyn reraised. A call from Doft landed the {A-Diamonds} turn, which he checked. Kostritsyn bet, but again was check-raised by Doft. Kostritsyn called and then called Doft's bet after the {J-Clubs} river.

Doft tabled {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for a seven-high straight with the nut low, Kostritsyn mucked, and Doft scooped the pot.

Matching Boats

• Taso 8

Alexander Kravchenko bet out on a {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Spades} flop. Eugene Katchalov and one other player called. The turn was the {k-Clubs}. Kravchenko bet again, and Katchalov raised. The other player folded and Katchalov called. The river was the {4-Diamonds}. Kravchenko checked, Katchalov bet, and then Kravchenko check-raised. Katchalov called, and the players revealed their hole cards:

Kravchenko: {10-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Katchalov: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

The players both made tens full of kings and they split the pot with matching full houses.
