Day 2 Completed

Margareta Morris Tops Shark-Filled Field on Day 2

Level 20 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante
Margareta Morris has the lead.
Margareta Morris has the lead.

Day 2 of Event 49: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em began with 204 players, many of them grizzled veterans with piles upon piles of poker winnings in their lifetimes. However, the day ended with a chip leader that few would have expected to top the final 23: Margareta Morris, a Connecticut native with just nine recorded tournament cashes for $121,525.

Morris spent much of her day mixing it up with some of poker's finest, accumulating chips from confrontations with players like JC Tran and Jason Koon. It was a pot against Melanie Weisner with mere minutes remaining in the night that really vaulted Morris to the top. She put in a raise after Weisner bet and was called on a flop of {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}, and Weisner shoved all in. Morris made the call.

Weisner: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Morris: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

The dealer burned and turned the {q-Spades}, keeping Morris alive for runner-runner, and she then peeled off the {q-Diamonds} to give Morris a full house.

Former November Niner John Dolan checked in with the second-best stack with 719,000, and Koon (616,000), Kevin MacPhee (601,000), Blake Bohn (582,000), Weisner (301,000), and Josh Arieh (267,000) bagged as well.

Tons of notables began the day, and crushers such as Ankush Mandavia, Taylor Paur, Ami Barer, Darren Rabinowitz, and Phil Hellmuth were among those getting paid for their efforts. Hellmuth had a particularly painful exit, as he was down to four big blinds before a massive comeback saw him return to contention. Then, he got three-outed and delivered some choice words.

Play resumes at 1 p.m. tomorrow, so be sure to tune back in to PokerNews for the Day 3 of this prestigious tournament.

Weisner Takes Horrifying Beat

Level 20 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante
Melanie Weisner was on the receiving end of an awful beat.
Melanie Weisner was on the receiving end of an awful beat.

Shortly after calling down Jean Gaspard on a board of {k-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and being shown {8-Spades}{3-Spades}, Melanie Weisner got involved in a massive pot on a flop of {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}. Margareta Morris put in a raise after Weisner bet and was called, and Weisner shoved all in. Morris made the call.

Weisner: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Morris: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

The dealer burned and turned the {q-Spades}, keeping Morris alive for runner-runner, and she then peeled off the {q-Diamonds} to give Morris a full house.

"That's the sickest s*** I've ever seen," Josh Arieh said. "And I've been playing poker a long time."

Hasan Habib Eliminated in 26th Place ($22,309), Guillaume Diaz Eliminated in 25th Place ($22,309)

Level 20 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

Kevin MacPhee has eliminated two players in the same hand and is now riding a stack approaching 600,000.

Hasan Habib moved his short stack all-in from under the gun, Guillaume Diaz reshoved from the next seat and MacPhee called from the big blind to put both opponents at risk.

Habib: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Diaz: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
MacPhee: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

MacPhee flew into the lead on the {2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{A-Spades} flop and then further ahead on the {A-Diamonds} turn. The {Q-Spades} completed the board and both Habib and Diaz busted.

Giuseppe Pantaleo Eliminated in 27th Place ($22,309)

Level 20 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

Giuseppe Pantaleo pushed his stack into the middle from under the gun and Norbert Szecsi called from the button.

Pantaleo's tournament life depended on how well his {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} could perform against the {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} of his opponent. It didn't perform very well because the board ran {5-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{A-Clubs} to send Pantaleo to the rail in 27th place.
