The high-rollers scene continues to thrive with the PokerGO Cup Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em attracting 61 entries to generate a $610,000 prize pool at the PokerGO Studio at the ARIA Resort and Casino.
Ali Imsirovic is in a prime position to pad his lead on the PokerGO Tour Leaderboard as he will enter the official final table of six players as the table captain with a huge stack of 2,670,000 for approximately 1 million chips more than his nearest competitors in Matas Cimbolas (1,690,000) and Dylan Linde (1,620,000).
Mo Rahim, who sent Sergio Aido packing on the money bubble in 10th place, lost a big hand near the end of the opening day to Imsirovic but still managed to also bag a seven-figure stack on the opening day while Frank Funaro and partypoker Ambassador Jason Koon (170,000) also advanced with hopes of spinning up their short-stacks.
Daniel Weinand (eighth - $24,400) and Marius Gierse (ninth - $18,300) were the first two players eliminated in the money with the day ending after Sam Soverel ended his day in seventh place for $30,500. This marked the second cash for Soverel after previously finishing in ninth place for $26,400 in PokerGO Cup Event #1: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em.
