Andy Frankenberger and Mike Sexton are the only pair that have both cashed both their lammers - Benefield cashed both his lammers at the start of play. Most have not used one yet and only a couple players have redeemed one.
The general consensus over these past two days is that it's been the PLO levels that have played the fasted, and that's understandable as players, a lot of the time, wanted to see a flop at least. The game generates action. Period.
The one level exception to this has been the second level of each match, the first PLO level. As they're still fairly deep it's easy to get to see a flop cheap. Beyond that point the players seem unwilling to get too deep into pots. Because of that we've seen virtually no showdowns this level.
The next time PLO comes around, that will all have changed.
We just saw David Williams cash in his first lammer after losing a pot to Simeon Naydenov. After he reloaded he opened for 3,200 on the button and Naydenov called. The flop came and Naydenov check-called 3,600. The turn brought the and Nyadenov check-called a second time, this time 8,500. The river brought the and both players checked.
Williams showed down for a flush and took the pot.
Jason Koon has won the first significant pot in his match with Josh Arieh.
They had made it to the river of a board and around 35,000 chips had made it into the middle.
Arieh checked to Koon who fired a 25k chip into the middle. Arieh called, and mucked, after seeing Koon's .
