Peter Braglia Leads Going Into Day 3

Day 2 began with 309 hopefuls looking to continue their path toward poker glory and a $412,086 first-place prize. After 15 levels, just 15 players remained in the Mid-Stakes Poker Tour Venetian $1,600 Main Event.

Yet again, it was Peter Braglia who managed to bag the biggest stack, having done so already on Day 1c. This time, he will bring nearly eight million (7,925,000) to battle on the green felt. Not far behind him is Raman Afanasenko, who bagged 7,420,000 in chips.

Eliminations came swiftly out the gate of Day 2, and the bubble burst shortly after the first break of the day, with David Jackson and Jordan Jayne sharing the title of "bubble boy" after both were eliminated during hand-for-hand play at the same time at different tables.

Some notables who managed to cash include Nadya Magnus, Scott Davies, Joseph Cheong, Ryan Laplante, Ralph Perry, and Jesse Sylvia, who was all in on the direct bubble with jacks and held against {q-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

The final 15 will re-draw for seats and play down to an eventual champion tomorrow at noon local time.

Stay tuned to PokerNews as we will be on site to bring you all the action from the final day of the MSPT Venetian $1,600 Main Event!
