Event #57 Main Event Day 2B (1B + 1D)

12:02 PM
Day 2B is now underway. There were 1,295 who made the cut for Day 2A. We will see which players move on to Day 3 and who will not.

12:28 PM
David Baker was one of the first to bust after his flush draw met the set of 9's made by Steven Curran on the turn. Thuy Doan also ran into bad luck as she took her 5's to the middle with the rest of her chips. But her opponent called her with pocket 10's that held to the river. Per Ummer turned over the last of his chips when his all-in was met by the Ace high flush of the other player.

1:09 PM
Jeff Williams, George Danzer and Perry Friedman have all been given a ticket on the train to Bustedville. Michael Martin who won the EPT London tournament, is gone as well. Martin took his pocket K's to the table, but his caller made a Jack high straight to win.

1:57 PM
Phil Ivey will not be at this years final table. He suffered defeat by the full house (8's/5's) belonging to Scott "Mayhem" Einigier after being crippled on an earlier hand. Erik Cajelais just busted as well.

2:23 PM
Andy Bloch made a set of 9's on the turn and went all-in with that hand. Unfortunately the river card gave his opponent an Ace high flush to bust him out of the tournament. Others who are joining the departed are Shannon Elizabeth, Andrew Lichtenberger, Tom Franklin, Kevin Saul, Vivek Rajkumar, Todd Brunson and Minh Ly.

3:19 PM
Hevad Khan has left the tables after his all-in bid with A Q lost to the full house made by the other player (5's/3's) by the river. The top 5 players with chip counts at this time are;
  1. Dave Sands -- 233,000
  2. Steve Billirakis -- 233,000
  3. Robert Miller -- 212,000
  4. Jason DeWitt -- 191,000
  5. Khamsy Nuanmanee -- 182,500
4:03 PM
Kirk Morrison met the pocket A's of Jiaqi Xu which turned into two pair (Q's and A's) which meant Morrison had to take a trip to the sidelines. Scott Montgomery was under the gun and went in with K 8 and was called by A 9. Montegomery could not catch up and will have to settle for the one gold bracelet he won earlier in this years WSOP.

4:59 PM
Gavin Griffin finished his Main Event play after his opponent made a set of 4's that he couldn't overcome. Also Darvin Moon will not see a seat at the final table this year. We don't know the details yet on how he busted, but when we do we'll put them here for you.

5:47 PM
Some of the players still in the field are Jason DeWitt 189,500, Frank Kassela 164,000, David Benyamine 154,000, Robert Varkonyi 132,000, Vanessa Rousso 115,000, Bill Chen 105,000, Roberto Romanello 107,000, Jason Mercier 94,000, Humberto Brenes 85,000, Scott Clements 85,000 and Barry Greenstein 68,400.

7:02 PM
Dinner break until 8:30 PM.

8:30 PM
John Duthie was eliminated right before dinner break when his all-in with K 4 was met with the full house (6's/A's) belonging to his opponent. Ludovic Lucay took one look at the hand his opponent had verses his own and just got up to leave before the board had been dealt. Pretty much they have been dropping like flies. Gone are Marco Traniello, Marcello Del Grosso, Freddy Deeb, Alexander Kravchenko, Cyndi Violette, J.C. Tran, Shane Schleger, Steve Zolotow and Orel Hershiser.

9:13 PM
Doyle Brunson is no longer in the Main Event. He put his 38,000 chips in the middle with pocket 7's and got called by a player with pocket J's that held to the river. When word got out that Doyle was eliminated, the entire Amazon room stood up from their chairs to give him applause before he left. And we were never able to learn how Darvin Moon was eliminated.

10:30 PM
No Limit Hold'Em can be ugly sometimes. Take the case of Ylon Schwartz who made the 2008 Main Event Final Table. He was at 100,000 chips and within two consecutive hands he was gone, kaput, fineto! This can happen to the best of us.

11:10 PM Day 2B has officially come to an end, and the remaining players are bagging their chips and will take a day off to regroup. So will we. Coverage will continue on the 12th of July.
