WSOP 2011 Day 2B: Main Event Winners And Losers

Day 2b of the Main Event got underway with 2,490 players vying for a place through to the communal Day 3. Such was the rate of eliminations on a brutal Day 2b that more than 500 competitors were shown the exit within the first three hours of play.
Eventually, at the end of 10 hours of play, just 1,080 hopefuls remained with many top pros falling short of their WSOP aspirations along the way.
Amongst the top pros to be eliminated on Day 2b, was Eric Mizrachi, whose As-Ks failed to improve against his opponents K-K. Mizrachi later tweeted:
“It really does suck busting out of the main event 45 min before the end of day 2. Now I’m rooting for baby brother.”
Other big names joining him on the rail included Mike Matusow, Barry Greenstein, Roland de Wolfe, Eugene Katchalov, Mike Sexton, Phil Laak, Jamie Gold, Phil Galfond, Andy Black, Beth Shak, Dario Minieri, Daniel Alaei, Kenny Tran, JC Tran, Joe Sebok, Paul Wasicka, Darvin Moon, Chau Giang, Shannon Elizabeth, Liv Boeree, Cliff Josephy, Tony Dunst and Dave “Devilfish” Ulliot.
However, at the top of the 2b winners list was Ben Lamb, whose has already earned $1.3 million this WSOP including four cashes, three final tables and a gold bracelet. Lamb started the day as the chip leader and managed to finish the same way on 551,600 chips. Close by is WPT winner Kevin Saul on 542,200 and Ryan D’Angelo on 462,300.
Other notable players thriving on Day 2B included Patrik Antonius (361,000), Justin Bonomo (252,400), Tony Hachem  (245,100), Jeff Madsen (231,500), November Niners Joseph Cheong (229,100) and John Racener (182,900),  Liv Boeree (125,000), David Chiu (105,000), Allen Cunningham (100,600), Jeffrey Lisandro (88,000), Freddy Deeb (75,000), David Bach (39,000) and Vanessa Rousso (38,000).
Amazingly, Eric Lindgren started play on just 3.700 chips but still managed to finish the day on an impressive 170,300 stack.
Day 3
Approximately 1,900 players left from the original 6,865 starting field will now have a day’s break before returning on Thursday for Day 3. Play will then continue until  Tuesday 19th July when just nine players remain, with the final table then breaking until November.
