Other action from yesterday and a preview of today after the jump:

As noted last night, Svetlana Gromenkova took down the Ladies’ World Championship, Anh Le finished 2nd yet again in the Ladies’ event.

In other final table action, the $2,000 Omaha 8 winner was Andrew Brown, Ted Forrest finished 2nd, Jim Pechac turned 2,000 in chips at the start of play yesterday into a 3rd place finish. Scott Clements finished in 7th, while Jimmy “Gobboboy” Fricke finished 9th.

The $1,500 NL Shootout winner was Jason Young, Mike Schwartz was 2nd, and John Strzemp III, whose father finished 2nd to Stu Ungar in the 1997 WSOP Main Event, finished 3rd.

In tournament action that started yesterday:

Event #19, $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha, started with 759, and after 10 levels of play the field shrunk to a very compact 46. Seems starting the blinds at 25-50 with only 3,000 in chips may not have been the best idea. Day 2 expects to be a very short day if the action is maintained at this pace. Vanessa Selbst appears to be chip leader with about 200,000 in chips. Carter Gill, Eugene Todd Tran Bro Rob Hollink and Jordan Morgan appear to be in the top 10. As always, Pokernews or worldseriesofpoker.com are the place to be to follow the updates live (as long as the wi-fi at the Rio holds up).

Another day, another two events start today:

Event #21 ($5,000 NL Holdem) starts at noon. Last year, 640 entered, with James “mig.com” Mackey winning the bracelet.

The 5pm tournament is event #22 ($3,000 HORSE), which should serve as a warmup for the $50,000 HORSE in two weeks. Last year’s HORSE drew 382 entrants, with James Richburg taking down the bracelet. Expect him to return in his attempt at winning a bracelet in three consecutive years.

More updates this afternoon…
