Day 2 of Event #48: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MONSTER STACK is in the books. A total of 2,085 out of 6,260 players came back to battle it out and try to build their stacks but while some managed to do so, others lost their stacks in the process.

At the end of ten levels, it was two-time bracelet winner Steve Billirakis bagged a top stack with 1,399,000. Back in 2007, Billirakis became the youngest WSOP bracelet winner ever by collecting the coveted prize at just 21 years and 10 days of age. Eleven years later, he's a seasoned veteran with $2,137,234 in earnings at the WSOP and will be looking to add another bracelet to his collection.

Billirakis is closely followed by James Stewart (1,220,000), Raul Manzanares Lozano (1,176,000) and David Neiman 1,160,000. Lozano managed to pop the money bubble at Level 15 of the tournament when his jacks beat his opponent's ace-king. Aditya Agarwal rounds up the top five stacks with 1,100,000. Agarwal has $498,210 in cashes at the WSOP, including four cashes in No-Limit Hold'em events this summer.

Some other stars who are still in the running for the elusive WSOP gold bracelet and first-place prize of $1,037,451 include bracelet winners Gaurav Raina (357,000), Jackie Glazier (275,000) and Nipun Java (101,000), as well as Jimmy Guerrero (940,000), five-time ring winner Kurt Jewell (768,000) and Aliaksei Boika (597,000).

Once the bubble burst and the remaining 939 players were guaranteed $2,251, the rest of the day brought many casualties to reduce the surviving field to just 257 players.

There were several bracelet holders that took a shot at more glory and made it to day 2 but couldn't survive another day including Alexandru Papazian (930th place), Jack Duong (886th place), Jared Hamby (837th place), Benjamin Zamani (833rd place), Athanasios Polychronopoulos (789th place), Peter Eichhardt (702nd place), Will Givens (676th place), Phillip Hui (670th place), Scott Davies (639th place), Blair Hinkle (626th place), Mark Radoja (589th place), Loni Harwood (521st place), Ryan Riess (520th place), Ronnie Bardah (487th place), Tuan Le (501st place), Calvin Anderson (423rd place), Dan Heimiller (412th place) and Alex Bilokur (359th place).

Other notables who didn't find a bag include Gaelle Bauman (804th place), Sylvain Loosli (641st place), Simon Deadman (635th place), Kitty Kuo (595th place), Jose Aguilera (529th place), Daniel Strelitz (491st place), Darryll Fish (490th place), as well as Kfir Ivgi (682nd place), who started the day as the chip leader but couldn't keep it up.

Just two more days remain before another millionaire will be crowned at 2018 World Series of Poker. The 257 remaining players will come back on Tuesday, June 26th, at 11 a.m. local time and will start the day at Level 21 with blinds of 5,000/10,000 with a 1,000 ante.

The PokerNews team will be bringing full coverage of this and every other WSOP event this summer.

Five More Hands

SandraBarbour • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Five more hands will be dealt at each table before players bag and tag for the night.

Zukowicz Makes the Right Call

SandraBarbour • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Monika Zukowicz opened to 18,000 in middle position and the player in the big blind called.

On the {4-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop, the big blind checked. Zukowicz bet 18,000 and the big blind called. The turn brought the {3-Hearts} and was checked through to the {a-Diamonds} river. This time, the big blind threw in a bet of 42,000. Zukowicz made the call.

The big blind tabled {10-Spades}{4-Spades} and Zukowicz showed {j-Spades}{j-Clubs} to win the pot.

Boika Eliminates Two

Aliaksei Boika
Aliaksei Boika

The action folded around to the hijack and the player moved all in for around 35,000. Aliaksei Boika in the cutoff called before Annette Obrestad, on the button, moved all in for around 120,000. Boika made the call and the hands were turned on their backs.

All-In Player: {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Aliaksei Boika: {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Annette Obrestad: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Board: {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Spades}

Obrestad was ahead preflop and in line to double-up, but that quickly changed after an ace appeared on the flop, and Boika held to score a double elimination and move up to 450,000.
