WSOP 2014 Day 2A/B: Main Event Winners And Losers

WSOP 2014 Day 2A/B: Main Event Winners And LosersOf the 2,915 competitors entering Days 1a and 1b of the 2014 WSOP Main Event, 1,933 players made it through to Day 2a/b of the showcase tournament. After 10 hours of action, though, two-thirds of the field had fallen by the wayside, with roughly 700 hopefuls progressing onto a combined Day 3.
Amongst the big name pros eliminated on Day 2a/b was the 2012 WSOP Main Event winner Greg Merson, 2013 November Niner Michiel Brummelhuis, Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton, WSOP 2014 man on fire Brandon Shack-Harris, 2-times WSOP 2014 bracelet winner George Danzer, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Igor Kurganov, and Dennis Phillips.
Day 2a/b turned out to a bad day for the ladies, too, with Amanda Musumeci, Liv Boeree, Jessica Dawley, Elisabeth Hille and Annette Obrestad all hitting the deck. Earlier in the day Vanessa Selbst tweeted the following message:
“Last day in my 20’s, hopefully not my last day in the WSOP Main Event!”
Unfortunately she did not get her wish, either, and two hours later, tweeted:
“Well that tweet was bad luck, lost QJ to QQ on 55Q25 and then 87 to KQ on J96T and gg me. Gl to everyone still in.”
On the other side of the coin, Tim Stanisfer (481,500), Tom Cannuli (407,800), and Tony Ruberto (402,700) finished as the biggest stacks on the day, while WSOPC and PCA winner Joe Kuether, too, made it into the top four, later tweeting:
“Took me 6 years but I finally made day 3 of the main event! 401.2k with a day off tmrw!”
Notable players also thriving on the day included Paul Tedeschi (336,600), Antonio Esfandiara (277,800), Chris Moneymaker (222,000), Kevin MacPhee (182,000), Ole Schemion (180,900 chips) Marvin Rettenmaier (173,200), and Phil Galfond (165,900).
Surviving Day 2a/b, but on small stacks, was 2013 WSOP Main Event Champion Ryan Reiss (84,900 chips), Andrew Lichtenberger (76,200 chips) and David Vamplew (60,000 chips).
Day 2c of the WSOP Main Event continues today at noon Las Vegas time, after which survivors will make it through to a single Day 3.
