Day 2 will see the table winners on Day 1, play at one of 5 six handed tables. When they win their table they will have 900,000 chips in which to have on Day 3. Even if they lose, they will still see cash, so today is a good day. The cards began hitting the tables at 2:00 PM. Nasr El Nasr fought Barney Boatman and Phil Ivey hard to win his table. After Boatman took the balance of Ivey's chips, he then turned them over to Nasr after a flop of K K 8 in which Boatman went all in with pocket 7's. Nasr called with A 8, giving him the larger two pair. Turn and river card didn't improve things, so Nasr moved on to the final table. Andrew Lichtenberger advanced after crushing the pocket K's of David "The Dragon" Pham with a full house (Q's/5's) that Andrew made on the river. Danny Wong moved on after sending Peter Feldman to the rail with a Broadway straight. Peter Trapley claimed a chair at the final table when he finished off David Kitai with his pocket 10's that held to the river. And Maxim Lykov battled it out with Lex Veldhuis and won by a Jack kicker to make the final chair for tomorrow.

Day 3 -- Final Table
Here is a summary of the WSOP coverage on this event:
The 2009 World Series of Poker $5,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Shootout champion is Peter Traply. Traply is a 22-year-old professional poker player. Traply earned his college degree in communications. He decided to play poker for a time before deciding on what career he wishes to pursue. Traply is fluent in Hungarian. He speaks English well. Traply collected $348,755 for first place. He was also awarded his first WSOP gold bracelet.
The tournament was played over three consecutive days. The final table lasted about five hours. The final hand of the night came when Traply was dealt A-K versus Lichtenberger’s A-J. Both players flopped and ace. But Traply’s king-kicker proved to be the difference and scooped the final pot of the tournament. Traply was cheered to victory by about a dozen Hungarian supporters, chanting songs and slogans in their native language. Some of the Hungarians were poker players and others were visiting Las Vegas and heard about a Hungarian at the final table and decided to come and watch the finale. When Traply won, he was draped by a Hungarian flag with the national colors, red, green and white.
