Talal Shakerchi busted and re-entered yesterday, but it turned out to be in vain as he had his fate repeated here on Day 2.

Shakerchi lost a good portion of his chips when Sorel Mizzi was all in preflop with {j-}{10-}. Shakerchi had him at risk with {6-}{6-}, but Mizzi managed to catch to win the race.

Not long after, Shakerchi shoved his last 72,000 from the button holding the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Patrik Antonius called him from the big blind with {k-}{7-}. The {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop paired Antonius, but it also gave Shakerchi an open-ended straight draw with a flush draw. The {6-Diamonds} turn didn't complete it, and neither did the {9-Spades} river. Shakerchi missed his plethora of outs and hit the rail for the second time this tournament.
