So popular did Event #9: $600 No Limit Hold’em Deepstack prove to be (there were 6,150 entries in total) that it has had to be extended to a third day of play. Returning to contend for the WSOP bracelet and $398,281 tomorrow, June 5th at 3 pm will be nine players led by Paul Jain.

Perhaps the most surprising final table appearance is that of David Elet who was heading to collect his payout slip when it was realized that he still had 15,000 chips – this amount, however, not even enough for a big blind. After proving that “a chip and a chair” could indeed win you a bracelet, David Elet will be playing at the final table with 21,300,000 in chips.

James Mackey Eliminated in 10th Place ($27,463)

Djinn • Level 38: 400,000-800,000, 800,000 ante
James Mackey
James Mackey

With fatigue setting in and the shortest stack on the table by a large margin, James Mackey made a good go of trying to build back, moving in preflop twice in quick succession. The first time (on the button) got through, but the second saw Jeremy Pekarek re-shove, isolating Mackey.

Mackey: {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Pekarek: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

The board ran out {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and just like that, the mammoth Deepstack Day 2 draws to a close.

Final table seating, chip counts and a recap of the day will be posted shortly.

(Presumably) Final Break - 15 Minutes

Djinn • Level 37: 300,000-600,000, 600,000 ante

Showdowns have dried up this level, as players pass the huge blinds around. There are definite haves and have-nots, however.

There was discussion of coming back ten-handed tomorrow instead of playing on, but one player wanted to stick to the original schedule, so that's what's happening.

Double Up Flip for Confident Jones

Djinn • Level 37: 300,000-600,000, 600,000 ante

Noomis Jones proved that Paul Jain is not invincible recently, as his {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} held up (all in preflop) vs. Jain's {a-Spades}{q-Spades} over a {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} board. Even before the flop, he predicted his victory (although said he'd hit a set on the river).

Chad Layne Eliminated in 11th Place ($27,463)

Djinn • Level 36: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante
Chad Layne
Chad Layne

Chad Layne had manoeuvred a short stack off and on for the last few levels around huge pots which destroyed the bracelet hopes of erstwhile chip leaders. He was all-in with {k-}{8-} against pocket fours in his last hand, and succumbed to a four on the river.
