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

Update Day 2B: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersAt the end of Day 2a of the 2010 WSOP Main Event, 1,295 players had managed to book their places through to Day 3 of the competition.
Day 2b saw 2,734 hopefuls returning for a chance to join those players at a communal Day 3, which gets underway tomorrow. By the end of play, however, just 1,359 had survived the gruelling schedule with many of the top names in the game having to put any further WSOP ambitions on hold for another year.
Amongst the top pros to be eliminated on Day 2b, Phil Ivey’s was the most high profile. Ivey ran pocket Q’s into his opponents K’s and even managed to make a set on the turn but was still sent to the rail after his opponent hit a K on the river.
Phil Ivey’s exit from the tournament was accompanied by those of a whole host of other disappointed pros, which included Doyle Brunson, Chris Ferguson, Freddy Deeb, Andy Bloch, JC Tran, Jeff Shulman, Darvin Moon, Gavin Griffin, Dan Kelly, Hevad Khan, Todd Brunson, Andrew Lichtenberger, Thuy Doan and Ryan D’Angelo.
Celebrities also hitting the rail on an intense day of poker action were Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Alexander, Sam Simon, Orel Hershiser, Trishelle Canatella and Jennifer Elise Cox.
Where there are losers so there are winners, and emerging at the top of the pack was a relatively unknown David Assouline on 387,800 chips. More notable players to progress through to Day 3 in style were Jon Van Fleet (295k), Vanessa Selbst (265k), Brynn Kenney (260k), JJ Liu, Phil Galfond, David Benyamine, Allen Cunningham, Bernard Lee and Steve Billirakis.
Sitting on average stacks are Vanessa Rousso (104k), Gavin Smith, Barry Greenstein and David Chiu, while those players on short stacks and hoping to get off to an early start on Day 3 are Phil Laak, Brandon Cantu, Jennifer Harman, Eric Schoenberg, Prahlad Friedman and Kara Scott.
All the remaining 2,560 players still left in at the 2010 WSOP Main Event will now return on Monday and play through to Saturday until just nine players are left. They final table will then be set for November.
