Day 2

Pater Traply was among the first to go on day 2. Traply lost his all-in move to the Ace kicker of Dmitry Motorov by the end of the hand. Lisa Hamilton was also railbound after meeting the two pair (8's and 7's) of Ilya Gorodetskiy. Darus Suharto was not far behind after his two pair (A'a and Q's) lost to the set of 10's made by Matt Graham. But the "OMG" performance goes to Erick Lindgren who went up and down to 180,000 and then in 3 hours shot his stack up to over 1.1 million chips! He was moving so fast busting players that no one knows what big plays he made to get up there. Huge levels of credit also have to go to Mark Radoja who had 47,500 chips on day 1 and vaulted to 1,493,000 on today going forward as chip leader. At the end of the day there were only 12 to fight for a spot on the six handed final table. They'll be back at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
