Day 2 Completed
Day 2 Completed
Day 2 of Event #16: $1,500 No Limit Hold-em 6-Handed is officially history after 10 one-hour levels of play concluded with 21 players remaining from the 289 who returned at the start of the day.
The day started quickly, with a fast-approaching bubble at 275 players reached after only around 30 minutes of play. The pace did not slow down as eliminations piled up throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Players such as Adrian Mateos, Johan “YoH ViraL” Guilbert, Dmitry Yurasov, David Benyamine, and Jeff Madsen all had above average stacks at some point in the day before ultimately being eliminated in the money.
When the dust settled, France’s Romain Nussmann found himself with the chip lead, bagging a massive 8,095,000. Nussmann started the day well below average, with 69,000 and only 17 big blinds in his stack. Midway through the night, he began his ascent when he got pocket aces in preflop versus the pocket jacks of Adrian Mateos. He held and found himself around the two-million mark. Nussmann was seen during the last level of the night at around 3,500,000 and knocked several players out before finishing the day at over eight million.
Another player to finish Day 2 with a huge stack is Singapore’s Ong Dingxiang, who finished the day with 7,080,000. Dingxiang was also seen steadily accumulating his stack across numerous tables throughout the day. Rounding out the top five in chips is Pierce Mckellar, (4,990,000), Kai McCue-Unciano, (2,760,000), and Nicolas Careme, 2,400,000. Other notable players to make Day 3 include Isaac Baron, (2,050,000), Stephen Graner, (2,045,000), and Day 1 chip leader Richard Hasnip, (1,615,000).
Day 3 will resume Friday at 2 p.m. local time with play resuming at the beginning of Level 25. Blinds will be 20,000/40,000 with a 40,000 big blind ante, and the remaining 21 players are scheduled to play until a champion is crowned.
