WSOP 2014 Day 2C: Main Event Winners And Losers

WSOP 2014 Day 2C: Main Event Winners And LosersAll three Day 2’s of the 2014 WSOP Main Event have been completed with just 1,864 players now left from the original starting field of 6,683. The remaining survivors will next return to the Rio All-Suite in Las Vegas for a communal Day 3 in which the players will try to move a step closer to one of the 693 paid places, and ultimately to the guaranteed top prize of $10 million.
Losers
Day 2c saw some of the biggest names in poker eliminated, including seven former WSOP Main Event champions in the guise of  Carlos Mortensen, Berry Johnston, Joe Cada, Joe Hachem, Scotty Nguyen, Jonathan Duhamel and none other than Phil Hellmuth. Following his exit, Hellmuth took to Twitter and wrote:
“Busted myself in #WSOPMainEvent…Bluffed off too many chips in 1 pot. Bluffing kept me in there, BUT live by the sword, die by the sword.”
Other big name pros seeing their Main Event dreams come to a close for another year included Gus Hansen, Tobias Reinkemeier, Eric Baldwin, Daniel Colman, Matt Salsberg, JC Tran, Matt Stout,  Phillip Hui, Cherish Andrews, David Benyamine, Jennifer Harman, and Marcel Luske.
Winners
Phil Ivey started Day 2c with 187,025 in chips, but by the end of 10 hours of action the 10-times WSOP bracelet holder had increased his stack to 505,000 placing him atop the field. Commenting on his impressive run so far, Ivey said:
“$10 million means a lot. It’s a lot of money. I’m trying to win it, but more importantly I want to win the main event. It’s been my dream since I first started watching poker. As you get older you and start playing more tournaments, and you start thinking about your place in poker history. To win the main event would be a big part [of my legacy]. Hopefully I get it done this year.”
Other players enjoying big success on Day 2C included Raul Mestre (477,900), Isaac Baron (387,200), Brian Townsend (361,700), and John Hennigan (342,700).
Advancing to Day 3 on average stacks were Daniel Alaei (228,300), Haralabos Voulgaris (164,700), John Juanda (133,700), and Barry Greenstein (113,500), while Jake Cody (80,000) and Daniel Negreanu (39,800) will have their work cut out on Day 3 if they are to go much further in the competition.
