WSOPE 2013 Main Event: Day 2 Winners And Losers

WSOPE 2013 Main Event: Day 2 Winners And LosersThe two starting days of the 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event saw a combined field of 375 players enter the €10,450 tournament to create a prize pool worth €3.6 million. The number of enteries was actually 11% down compared to last year’s Main Event in Cannes, and by the end of two days of action 70 players remained, 40 of which will make the €20,250 money bubble.
As Day 2 drew to an end, that number had been further reduced to just 54 competitors, with a €1 million prize awaiting the eventual winner, as well as the accolade associated with becoming a WSOPE Main Event winner.
Losers
Amongst the big names already eliminated in the competition is last year’s champion Phil Hellmuth, who later tweeted:
“Busted out of #WSOPEMainEvent, sigh..Lost a key hand early in the day: my As-Ks vs their J-J, all in pre-flop. Played well today.”
Heading into Day 3, other notable pros also hitting the rail included Michael Mizrachi, John Juanda, David Baker, Phil Laak, Scott Seiver, JC Tran, David Benefield, Tobias Reinkemeier, Jonathan Duhamel, Barry Greenstein, Antonio Esfandiari, Eugene Katchalov, Erik Seidel, and Phil Ivey.
Winners
Currently at the top of the chip counts is 23-year-old German Dominik Nitsche (504,800), with Benny Spindler in 3rd spot (345,700), Fabrice Soulier in 5th (314,000), and Jay Farber in 7th (293,700).
Also making it through to Day 2 was Daniel Negreanu, who is hoping to cash in the top 7 places to ensure he wins the WSOP player of the year. With his eye firmly on the prize, Negreanu made a big fold towards the end of the day, later posting the following message:
“End day 2 WSOPE 115,100 avg is 160k 70 players left. Folded AK last hand vs JJ and TT would have won but it was 100% the correct fold.”
Other notables also in contention include Faraz Jaka, James Dempsey, Shawn Buchanan, Shannon Shorr, Jeremy Ausmus, Scott Clemens, and Sam Holden.
