Day 2 action has ended in Event #38: $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed at the World Series of Poker with Michael Addamo having nearly half of the chips in play with a stack of 11,475,000. The next closest is Justin Bonomo with 4,975,000, who is followed closely by Erik Seidel with 4,335,000. Joining them for the live-streamed Day 3 action will be Gal Yifrach (3,160,0000), and Chris Hunichen (405,000).

Addamo, who is after his third WSOP bracelet, entered Day 2 with a commanding chip lead and his stack only increased throughout the eight hours of play. The Australian crusher put maximum pressure on his opponents throughout the day and at the final table — perhaps best demonstrated in a hand where Yifrach folded a set of fives on a board of {k-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{7-Spades} when facing a shove from the runaway chip leader.

Bin Weng was the last player eliminated on Day 2 when he lost nearly all of his chips by calling off with pocket eights against the pocket nines of Bonomo. Weng was forced all-in in the big blind the next hand and his eight-seven couldn't get ahead of the king-jack of Bonomo.

Leonard Maue, Mustapha Kanit and Sam Soverel all made the nine-handed final table but couldn't make it to the end of the day.

Day 3 action will commence on Oct. 21 at 4 p.m. local time and will be live-streamed by PokerGO. The day will play down to a winner, who will earn a bracelet and a seven-figure cash of $1,132,968.

Will Addamo continue his spectacular high-stakes run and take down Event #38: $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed? Stay tuned to find out as the PokerNews live reporting team will be back tomorrow to cover Day 3.
