Day 2 of Event #51: $2,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better is in the books and what a day of action it was! The day started with 128 players vying firstly to make the money and then ultimately to make a deep run to the final few tables. When the bell tolled for the day, just twelve players remained, with their goal of winning a WSOP bracelet still alive.

Leading the pack of the remaining twelve is Michael Thompson who ended the day with a gargantuan chip count of 923,000. He emerged in the middle of the day as a serious contender with a large stack, one that would only continue to grow as the day wore on.

Right on his heels in 2nd is Daniel Radigan with 899,000 in chips. Radigan gained a large portion of his stack in the final level of the night in a big multi-way Stud hand in which he made the eight high straight as well as the best low to scoop a huge pot.

Bracelet winner Philip Long (813,000), Denis Strebkov of Russia (709,000) and Yuri Dzivielevski of Brazil (594,000) rounded out the top five chip stacks.

One of the best stories of the day featured Gerard Rechnitzer (496,000) who is also among the final twelve players. He was making his deep run incredibly alongside his father George Rechnitzer. The father and son combo were even seated at the same table for a few rounds with three tables remaining. However, George was unable to join his son on the final day as he ultimately succumbed in 18th place.

Several big name players fell short of making the final day when their tournament ended on today’s penultimate day of play. Including Jeff Lisandro (58th Place), Eli Elezra (42nd Place), Roland Israelashvili (31st Place) andJesse Martin (19th Place).

Shaun Deeb, who was one of the largest stacks in the room in the middle part of the day, was the final victim of the day after he lost a string of big hands late in the last level to send the defending WSOP player of the year out in unlucky 13th place.

The action will start back up Sunday June 23 at 2 p.m. local time at level 21 with limits at 20,000/40,000. Play will persist until the remaining 12 are reduced to the final player standing. Pokernews will provide all the updates and bring you the action, as a bracelet winner is determined.

Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Action folded to Shaun Deeb on the button and he sent his remaining 25,000 into the middle. Daniel Ratigan raised from the small blind to fold out Philip Long and it was time to run the cards.

Daniel Ratigan: {a-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Shaun Deeb: {k-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

Deeb had a solid hand given the situation but it was in bad shape to Ratigan's. The board ran out {j-Hearts}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and he was unable to improve as he was eliminated from the tournament shortly before the end of the day.

Deeb Left On Fumes

KaleGozer • Level 20: 15,000-30,000, 3,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Michael Thompson open limped from the button and Shaun Deeb completed from the small blind. Philip Long checked his option and the flop came {q-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. Deeb checked, Long Bet, Thompson called, and Deeb thought for a few seconds before calling as well, leaving himself 25,000 behind.

The turn came {j-Diamonds} and Deeb checked to Long who bet again. Thompson made the call and Deeb sat in the tank, seemingly in disbelief for about a minute before letting his hand go.

The river was {5-Hearts} and Long fired once more. Thompson called.

Long tabled {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Thompson {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{9-Spades} and the two chopped the pot.

Michael Coombs {x-}{x-} / {q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{j-Clubs} / {x-}

Vengrin was all in before seventh street with {5-Spades}{2-Clubs} revealed, needing help. He squeezed his last card which was a useless {9-Clubs} and unable to beat the trip jacks of Coombs. He put his head down in frustration and bent the card in half before tossing it in the air,

"Card Down" said Shaun Deeb at the table, as Vengrin walked away with his tournament over in 14th place.
