WSOP 2013 Main Event: Day 2A/B Winners And Losers

WSOP 2013 Main Event: Day 2A/B Winners And LosersDay 2a/b of the 2013 WSOP Main Event got underway at the Rio yesterday, with Day 2a taking place in the Amazon Room, while Day 2b was held inside the Pavilion Room and the Brasilia Room. After 10 hours of poker action, this is how the day finished:
Amongst the notables exiting the tournament on the day was Chris Moneymaker, Johnny Lodden, Joe Cada, Eugene Katchalov, Marc-Andre Ladouceur, Jonathan Karamalikis, Matt Salsberg, Gaelle Baumann, Jason Lester, Lee Markholt, Josh Brikis and Joe Tehan.
Amongst those players thriving on the day was Nick Schwarmann, who is currently out in front as the chip leader on a 413,600 stack, with UK’s Rupert Elder not far behind in 5th (342k), and other big stacks including Kenny Tran (299k) and Greg Merson (275k).
Also surviving the day was Ravi Raghavan, Annette Obrestad, Ronnie Bardah, Melanie Weisner, Juha Helppi, Liv Boeree, Scott Seiver, Sorel Mizzi, Phil Galfond, Daniel Cates, Ivan Demidov, Cliff Josephy and Andy Frankenberger.
Special mention goes to the 79 year-old Doyle Brunson, who bagged up 224k by the end of the day, before later commenting:
“I feel like a truck ran over me. I don’t even know any of these kids, but they’re all really good players. I’m really impressed with the quality of the play..Another win for me in the main event would really be a climax to a long career. It’s very unlikely, there are a lot of good players left, but I appreciate the chance.”
Day 2a/b survivors will now take the day off while Day 2c gets underway today, after which the seperate fields will come together for a communal Day 3. Players in action on Day 2c include Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu and Michael Mizrachi.
