WSOP 2015 Main Event: Day 2AB Winners And Losers

WSOP 2015 Main Event: Day 2AB Winners And LosersOf the 2,457 players who entered Days 1A and 1B of the 2015 Main Event, 1,524 competitors made it through to Day 2AB, and yesterday after 10 grueling hours of action that figure has now been further reduced by 874 players with just 650 hopefuls making it through to a combined Day 3.
Amongst the legion of players eliminated on Day 2AB were some of poker’s biggest names, including Jason Mercier who had already won a third career bracelet at this year’s competition. Mercier’s fortune was not so good this time round, however, and after seeing his staring stack dwindle from 66.3k to 34.k chips, wrote:
“Only decent pot I won today was when my opponent misread his hand.”
A few hours later he subsequently tweeted “Trending downward every level so far today,” before eventually being eliminated and writing “Busted the main after a grueling day. Lost a pretty ridiculous 130k pot with 56cc all in on Tc4c3x vs AThh. Maybe next year.”
Other notable pros hitting the rail on the day included Phil Galfond, Gavin Smith, Brian Rast, Matt Salsberg, Johnny Chan, Carlos Mortensen, Chris Moneymaker, Jorryt Van Hoof, Erick Lindgren, Dan Sindelar, Jesse Sylvia, David Pham Brandon Steven, Max Pescatori, and Bruno Politano.
Conversely, leading the chip stacks by the end of the day was Amar Anand (photo) on a 603,500 stack, followed by Calvin Lee (500,700), Luther Tran (479,700), Charles Chattha (423,300), and Alan Mastic (400,000).
Amongst the notable pros progressing with above-average stacks was Will Molson (370,300), Brian Hastings (367,300), Pierre Neuville (357,600), Jake Cody (340,100), and Fedor Holz (303,900),
Also making it through was Christian Harder (207,000), Mike Matusow (200,700), Jonathan Duhamel (177,400), Tobias Reinkemeier (175,000), David Sands (141,400), Justin Bonomo (112,000), and Greg Raymer (106,500).
Day 2AB survivors (650) will now take a day’s break before returning to a combined Day 3 where they will compete against a fraction of the 2,747 players who manage to survive today’s Day 2C.
