WSOP 2012 Day 2A/B: Main Event Winners And Losers

WSOP 2012 Day 2A/B: Main Event Winners And LosersOut of 3,180 players entering Days 1a and 1b of the 2012 WSOP Main Event, 2,004 competitors survived to make it through to Day 2a/b of the prestigious tournament.
By the end of the day’s action, however, the two separate fields had been roughly cut in half to 842 players with many notable names falling along the way.
Amongst the top players hitting the rail on Day 2a/b was Eric Seidel, Justin Bonomo, Tony Dunst, Bryan Devonshire, Mike Sexton, David Williams, Mike Matusow, Billy Baxter, Isaac Haxton, Brian Rast, Jeff Lisandro, Chad Brown, Scott Seiver, Allen Cunningham, and Darvin Moon.
Out of those players thriving on the day, French mystery woman Gaelle Baumann (photo right) progressed in pole position with a 505,800 stack, followed by Mark Demirdjian (499,990) and Shaun Deeb (460,900) in third. Commenting on his impressive run, Deeb had this to say to Cardplayer:
“Yeah I ended up busting a few 30 to 50k stacks. I hero called one or two of them, made a few top pairs, and then just won a standard flip. It seemed quick. I accumulated 250,000 chips at a 1k big-blind level in like an hour. I won every hand. It was a lot of fun, and nobody believed me.”
Also progressing through with larger than average stacks was Taylor Paur (391,600), Vanessa Selbst (350,400), Jason Somerville (332,700) Eugene Katchalov (330,900), Gavin Smith (279,100) and Daniel Negreanu (277,200).
Other big names pros still in contention include Maria Ho, Gabe Kaplan, Sam Farha, Pius Heinz, Peter Eastgate, Jerry Yang, Robert Varkonyi, Dan Harrington, Gavin Smith, Mike McDonald, David Pham, Andrew Lichtenberger, Faraz Jaka, Brian Hastings, Karina Jett and Dan Shak.
Day 2c will now get underway later today at noon Las Vegas time with the survivors from Day 1c hoping to make it through to a communal single Day 3.
