At 2 p.m. on Tuesday, the remaining 57 players will assemble in the Amazon Tan section at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino to do battle on Day 2 of Event #77: $3,000 Limit Hold'em 6-Handed , each knowing that 29 players will reach the money for minimum of $2,249 and a $133,189 first prize awaits the winner.
Ron Carmona will lead the pack with a chip stack of 142,500, with Joshua Turner (139,000) and Zachary Gruneberg (137,000) his closest rivals.
Yesterday saw 193 players come together, 21 players less than last year’s event, to create a $521,100 prize pool with a host of WSOP bracelet holders scattered among the field, but many didn't find a bag at the end of the day, including Chris Ferguson, Ismael Bojang, Daniel Negreanu, David Bach, Benny Glaser, Phil Hui and James Obst.
Yaser Al-Keliddar (38,000), the defending champion, is just one of the names who will be returning today alongside other well-known players Mark Radoja (117,000), Ian Johns (79,500), Marco Johnson (64,500), Calvin Anderson (60,500) and the 2015 Main Event Champion Joe McKeehen who will be looking to double up as he returns with a short stack of 12,500.
Just like yesterday, ten 60-minute levels will be played today with a 15-minute break every two levels. There will be a 60-minute dinner break after Level 6 (≈ 8:30 p.m.) The limits will begin at 2,000/4,000 and with average stack at 53,611.
