Update Day 2A: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And Losers

Update Day 2A: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersOut of the initial 7,319 players entering the first four starting days of the 2010 WSOP Main Event, 5,146 competitors survived to make it through to either Day 2a or 2b of the prestigious competition.
Yesterday, Day 2a saw 2,412 players return trying to book themselves a place through to a collective Day 3. By the end of play, however, just 1,295 had reached their intended goal with 1,117 hopefuls falling by the wayside.
Amongst the big name pros exiting the tournament were Ted Forrest, Carlos Mortensen, Tom McEvoy, Berry Johnston, Eli Elezra, Daniel Alaei, Marcel Luske, Brock Parker, David Oppenheim, Ralph Porter, Dennis Phillips, Greg Mueller, Dutch Boyd, Luca Pagano and Mike Sexton.
Another seasoned pro to hit the rails on Day 2a was Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari, who managed to hit top two pair on the flop but lost to an opponent who hit two miracle cards on the turn and river to complete a straight out of the blue.
Out of the lucky ones progressing through to Day 3, Chicago resident Boulos Estafanous on 344,100 in chips, goes forward as the chip leader, with Jesper Hougaard, Cole South and Johnny Chan close behind.
Another army of pros waiting in the wing are Robert Mizrachi (267k), Dragan Galic (263k), Patrik Antonius (258k), Yevgeniy Timoshenko (240k) and Jason Somerville (230k).
Barry Shulman, Sam Farha, Hoyt Corkins, Chris Moneymaker, Annie Duke, Scotty Nguyen, Joe Cada, Shannon Shorr, Michael Mizrachi, David Williams, Praz Bansi, Barny Boatman and Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, are all also still very much in contention.
On Day 2a, Daniel Negreanu’s entire tournament hung by a thread after going all-in after just 15 minutes of play. Daniel did, however, manage a double up to 50,000 chips holding A-Q against Adam Fisher’s A-J, on a Q-9-4-A board. Despite his win Daniel finished the day on just 27,900 chips and now has a lot of work to do if he is to progress much further in the event.
Day 2b gets underway on Saturday, with 2,734 players hoping to make it through to Monday and Day 3.
