Act of the day

There were 41 returning players who pocketed on Day 1, and an additional 11 players signed up before the late registrations closed at the start of Day 2.

Phil Ivey was looking to make a run, but it broke shortly after the start of the day. Seiver took an early jump in the rankings when he eliminated Craig Chaitand he maintained a top stack for most of the day before becoming chip leader.

Daniel Negreanu made his exit as the bubble approached when he ran his tap nine into fellow Canadian Livingston’s pat eight, and Bertrand Grospellier was ousted by Shak on the soft bubble.

From there, players would play for nearly an hour on the stone bubble before going on a dinner break, and when they returned it was Jeremy Ausmus to be the last unfortunate to go bankrupt without cash.

Jeremy Ausmus was seething

Max Coleman (19th – $16,000), Chino Rheem (18th – $16,000), Thomas Newton (17th – $17,500), Ben Diebold (16th – $17,500) and Ian O’Hara (15th – $17,500) all got in the money, but ran out of chips pocketing time.

Although the original plan was to play up to five players, that was certainly not going to be an option, and 12 hours into the day, the remaining 14 players pocketed and scored.

The third and final day is set to begin at 2pm local time on Sunday, June 19, with the final table scheduled to be streamed later in the day on the PokerGO platform. Stay tuned because the PokerNews the live reporting team returns to bring you updates until a champion is crowned.
