Rusnak Leading a Field of First-Time Bracelet Hopefuls After Day 2 of Event #80 - $1,500 NLHE/PLO

Ten more levels have been completed in Event #80: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha and Day 2 is officially complete. A total of 340 players returned today from the 1,251 total entries and after the final hand, 47 survived to put their chips in a bag for the night.

Leading the way is Francis Rusnak who ended the day with 2,334,000 in chips. Rusnak entered the day with 99,300, just over the average stack of around 91,900. He eclipsed the one million-chip mark shortly before the last break of the night before nearly doubling that figure in the last two hours of play.

Second in chips is Gary Bolden (2,100,00), the only other person over two million chips. Next on the list is Jerry Odeen, who bagged 1,957,000. Those three are ahead of the field by a wide margin, with Dominique Mosley (1,530,000) and Adam Demersseman (1,249,000) rounding out the top five stacks.

The day started out as expected with eliminations coming at quite the pace. The field shrank to 188, the number required to reach the money shortly after the second break of the day when Juha Helppi busted Anthony Zinno with pocket kings against jack-ten in a round of No-Limit Hold’em.

Some other notables who made it into the money before being eliminated included Chris Moorman (187th place - $2,250), Darryll Fish (166th place - $2,260), Loren Klein (156th place - $2,308), Calvin Anderson (94th place - $2,928), Brian Hastings (93rd place - $2,928), and Mark Gregorich (80th place - $3,227).

Of the 49 players left, only four remain that have won a WSOP bracelet in their careers. Steve Sung (734,000), Ayaz Mahmood (531,000), David “ODB” Baker (515,000), and Ankush Mandavia (250,000) will all have their work cut out for them when chips come out of bags and play resumes.

Cards will be in the air on Day 3 at noon local time on Friday, July 12. Play is scheduled to occur until a winner has been crowned, but with 47 players left it is likely that the completion of another 10 levels will not be enough to crown that champion. Come back to PokerNews for updates on all the action as the tournament progresses.

Two More Hands

Level 20 : 6,000/12,000, 12,000 ante

The tournament director has instructed the dealers to deal two more hands at each table before ending play for the night.

Mosley Uses Two Bullets

Level 20 : 6,000/12,000, 12,000 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

Dominique Mosley raised under-the-gun to 30,000 and Jonathan Abdellatif defended the big blind.

On the flop of {j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs} Abdellatif check-called a bet of 30,000 from Mosley. The turn was the {3-Diamonds}, Abdellatif checked and Mosley fired a second bullet of 80,000 and Abdellatif snap-folded.

Chabra Sends Ahmed Home

Level 20 : 6,000/12,000, 12,000 ante
Owais Ahmed
Owais Ahmed

Pot-Limit Omaha

Owais Ahmed was seen getting up from his seat as his chips were moving one spot to his left, now under the possession of Ajay Chabra. When asked, Chabra was happy to recount how the hand played out.

Ahmed raised to 30,000 from the cutoff and Chabra called on the button. The flop came {q-}{5-}{3-} with two diamonds and Ahmed continued with a bet of 55,000. Chabra raised the pot and Ahmed committed the rest of his chips.

Ajay Chabra: {a-Diamonds}{q-}{7-}{6-} with two diamonds
Owais Ahmed: {k-Diamonds}{k-}{8-}{5-} with two diamonds

The turn fell {k-Hearts} to give Ahmed top set but the river was the {j-Diamonds} to give Chabra the nut flush and send Ahmed home a few moments before the end of the night.

Sung Sends One Home

Level 20 : 6,000/12,000, 12,000 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

On a board of {q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{9-Spades} in what looked to be a single-raised pot preflop, Steve Sung had bet 25,000 from under the gun and the player in the big blind check-raised all in. Sung asked for a count and called after seeing a ballpark of around 225,000 decided to make the call.

Steve Sung: {a-Spades}{3-Spades}
Opponent: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

The turn came {6-Spades} leaving the all-in player all out before the meaningless {a-Diamonds} fell on the river.

Bolden Eliminates Fisher in Unexpected Way

Level 20 : 6,000/12,000, 12,000 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha

In a heads up pot, with 36,000 in the middle and a flop of {q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} Paul Fisher led out for 25,000 and Gary Bolden raised to 100,000, Fisher three-bet to 336,000 and after a short pause, Bolden moved all-in and Fisher snap-called.

Paul Fisher: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Gary Bolden: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

Bolden flopped top two pairs and a flush draw but was in much worse shape than he expected against Fisher's top set of queens. The turn gave Bolden some more outs though when the {4-Spades} hit and the {3-Clubs} was the river, giving Bolden a bicycle straight to eliminate Fisher.
