WSOPE 2015 Main Event: Day 2 Winners And LosersOctober 21, 2015 10:10 am
A total of 313 players entered Days 1a and 1b of the 2015 WSOP Europe Min Event, with 184 players subsequently making it through to a communal Day 2. Around 10 hours later, and that field had been further reduced to just 65 players, only 32 of which can expect to receive the minimum tournament payout of €20,000.
Amongst the 119 players that saw their WSOPE Main Events hopes come to an end on Day 2 was the current 2015 WSOP Player of the Year Mike Gorodinsky, who has cashed in eight WSOP tournaments this year for $1,764,112. Following his exit, the US pro from San Diego, California, tweeted:
“Busted the main. Last chance to protect the POY lead is the 25k HR tomorrow then it’s back stateside to sunny SD.”
Also hitting the rail on the day was Jonathan Duhamel, John Juanda, Nicolau Villa Lobos, Sergio Aido, Scott Clements, Barry Shulman, Scott Davies, Zvi Stern, Roberto Romanello, Stephen Chidwick, and Allen Kessler, who tweeted:
“Sick way to bust @wsop Berlin main. Sb open ships 35 vs my 20k stack. I snap bb with 44. Safe flop. 3 turn 5 river.”
Leading the chip counts at the end of Day 2 is the EPT Season 11 Player of the Year Dzmitry Urbanovich (374,800), followed by Mexican pro JC Alvarado (356,300), with other notable players in the top 10 including Niall Farrell (300,900), Adrien Allain (297,000), Maurice Hawkins (261,200), and Eric Seidel (238,600).
Other notable pros also making it through the day was Dominik Nitsche (166,100), David Kitai (165,700), Andrew Lichtenberger (165,500), Jason Mercier (140,900), Will Failla (93,800), Liv Boeree (67,000), and a short stacked Fedor Holz (38,400).
