After a long day of intense poker action, Day 2 of Event #30: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low came to a conclusion with Eric Kurtzman leading the final 12 players.

Beginning the day with 109 players, action was fast paced with eliminations flying out the door. Ann Bloom folded down to just over an ante before being eliminated by Anthony Zinno in 65th place, bursting the money bubble and leaving 64 players guaranteed a $2,603 payday.

Mike Watson (63rd), Hoyt Corkins (57th), Maria Ho (50th), Chris Viox (48th), Zinno (43rd), Roland Israelashvili (40th), Matt Glantz (34th), Owais Ahmed (31st), Dylan Linde (23rd), Jesse Martin (19th), and Chris Wallace (16th) all found themselves in the money, but on the rail as the day ended with just 12 players.

Kurtzmann's impressive 490,000-chip stack finished ahead of Calvin Anderson (356,000), Sanjay Pandya (307,000), and Joe Tehan (285,000) for the chip lead. Six-time WSOP bracelet winner Ted Forrest, cash-game specialist Melissa Burr, and 2007 Aussie Millions runner-up Jimmy Fricke still remain in contention for the $190,538 first prize and coveted gold bracelet.
