Young Ji is the Last of a Dying Breed After His Day 2 Run Came to an End

A friendly railbird named Eddie stopped by the PokerNews Live Reporting station to let us know that there had been an all-in bet and a call at Table #436. With that being the home of 2002 WSOP Main Event winner Robert Varkonyi, Day 1 chip leader Alexander Kunichoff, and the ever interesting Young Ji, we rushed over to take a look.

It was Ji who had his stack pushed forward, and his last 72,000 were at risk against Joseph Iannello. who had more than enough to afford a call. After a brief delay to sort out the chips in the pot, which saw Varkonyi play the role of arbitrator and accountant, Ji rolled over his {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} expecting to be in a coin flip situation at worst, but he was dismayed to see Iannello table the {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}, putting him in a terrible spot for his tournament life.

The flop was an uneventful {4-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, and when the {5-Spades} arrived on the turn, Ji stood up and sighed, before offering the table a sincere "good luck to you all."

With the win, Iannello moved above the 350,000 chip plateau, putting him in prime position to reserve a seat for tomorrow's pivotal third day of play.
