Event #57 Main Event Day 2A (1A + 1C)

12:12 PM
In all, there were 2,412 players that made it through Day 1A and 1C. The goal is to play for 4 levels, which means the action will continue from the middle of level 5 where blinds are 200/400 and ante of 50 to level 9 where blinds are 500/1,000 and ante of 100. Early busts include champion and WPT commentator Mike Sexton when his pocket K's were overrun by a player with a set of 9's.

12:47 PM
So many of the shorts are going for it to where the dealer chant of "All-in and a call!" and "Seat open!" have been echoing for the past 30 minutes. Actor/Comedian David Allan Greir and Mark Newhouse took off to the rail after losing the rest of their chips.

1:28 PM
Steve Wong was busted after his Q 10 lost to the full house (7's/J's) made by his opponent. Rob Hollink also joined the railbird section when his pocket 6's and his last 5,800 chips were divided between two other players who each made an Ace high straight on the river.

2:03 PM
James Akenhead will not make the Main Event final table this year as his elimination took place when his preflop move with A 2 suited failed to rout the A K of the other player. Others who are no longer in the field are Marcel Luske, Aaron Benton and Veronica Dabul.

But some who are doing well so far include Hoyt Corkins with 135,000 chips, Johnny Chan with 149,000, Lauren Kling 168,000, David Wiliams 140,000, Robert Mizrachi 121,000 and Michael Mizrachi 115,000.

2:46 PM
Ted Lawson lost the race with his pocket 9's to an opponent who paired his Ace card on the river, forcing Lawson to wait until next year for another chance for a bracelet at the RIO. Bryan Devonshire said goodbye to all after his A Q could not improve to beat the pocket 3's of the other player.

3:03 PM
Dutch Boyd just busted out of the Main Event. He tried his best with A Q, but in the end his opponent laid a set of 10's on him that were too heavy to bear. Raymond Davis was eliminated by Michael Mizrachi. By the river card Davis had a straight, but Mizrachi made a full house (J's/9's). Liz Lieu followed them as she lost to the King kicker of the other player.

3:49 PM
At the end of level 6, there were 1,902 players left in the field for Day 2A. Gone are "Hollywood" Dave Stann, Luca Pagano, Abe Mosseri, Liz Lieu, Terrence Chan, Haralabos Voulgaris and Rep Porter. The top 5 players at this time are:
  1. Dragan Galic -- 313,500
  2. Dwyen Ringbauer -- 240,000
  3. Robert Mizrachi -- 235,000
  4. Carter Phillips -- 196,000
  5. Andrew Liporace -- 172,000
4:23 PM
Tom McEvoy who had been short stacked for about 1 1/2 hours, finally had to vacate his chair after being busted from the Main Event. John Cernuto took ill to where he has not been able to play and his stack is being blinded off as we write. David Pham, Amnon Filippi, Ruben Visser and Matt Giannetti have also been recently eliminated.

5:19 PM
Berry Johnston is no longer in the Main Event. He confidently went to the middle with pocket A's and was called by a player with pocket Q's. But another Queen on the turn sealed Johnston's fate and ended his chance for a gold bracelet. Ted Forrest suffered a similar fate as he used his pocket 5's in an attempt to double up. But the player who called him with A K saw another Ace on the turn and a King on the river.

5:58 PM
Steve O'Dwyer took his last 22,000 and pocket 6's to the center, but saw defeat in front of him as the calling player received a second King on the flop to send O'Dwyer away from the tables. Next to leave was Sarah Underwood who fell to the set of 4's made by her opponent.

6:55 PM
Joe Cada is still in the running to defend his title as Main Event champion that he won last year. Cada has approximately 95,000 chips in front of him. Dennis Phillips who has made deep runs in the Main Event before, will not do so this year as his move with A J was stomped on by a player who made a set of 7's on the turn. Dinner break will run from 7:20 PM until 8:50 PM for 90 minutes.

9:20 PM
Play is at level 9 with blinds of 500/1000 and ante of 100 which means that things will end within the next hour or so. Joining the ranks of the fallen are Yuval Bronshtein, Noah Schwartz, Kristy Gazes, John Myung, Brock Parker, Lee Markholt, Quinn Do, Matt Glantz and Ran Azor.
