Welcome to our Day 2 coverage of Event #39, $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better. The starting field of 558 players is down to 155, each looking to capture the coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet along with the $184,590 first-place prize.
On top of the field entering Day 2 is Raul Paez with 58,400. He is followed by none other than Phil Hellmuth with 40,200. Only 56 players make the money and we fully expect to reach that point. Ten levels will be played today and play is scheduled to resume at 2pm local time, about half an hour from now.
Be sure to keep it here throughout the day for updates on all of the exciting action! For a recap on yesterday's happening at the Rio, here is Lynn Gilmartin to break it all down.
