Following 14 levels of exciting action in Event #69: $1,500 Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better, a litany of star power has advanced to Thursday’s Day 2.

Chip Jett (148,000), Shaun Deeb (143,000), Mike Watson (137,000), Matt Savage (126,000), Carol Fuchs (124,000), Ryan Leng (112,500), and Nathan Gamble (105,000) are just some of the names to bag big among the surviving 141 players from the original 372 entries.

While their stacks are impressive, a late charge placed Jermaine Reid of the Bronx, NY atop the leaderboard entering day 2 with 208,500 chips. Reid is a mixed games player with three previous WSOP cashes to his name, most recently a 35th place finish in this year’s Event #27: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. for $3,942.

Reid and many others will enter day 2 in a solid position to claim the ultimate award of a WSOP gold bracelet and the top prize of $113,459 which will be awarded Friday, while Thursday will see the top 56 finishers make the money, earning at least a min-cash of $2,433.

Some in the field not fortunate enough to survive the day included Norman Chad, Benny Glaser, Jon Turner, and David Williams.

Plenty of Fun Had Throughout the Day

The mood in the room was boisterous and light throughout the day with one player commenting that he hadn’t ever seen so many beers consumed in a tournament before the actual end of night “beer level”.

Brandon Shack-Harris, who has been known to rock a polar bear costume in tournaments many times was joined by friends Eric Rodawig and Benny Glaser in bear costumes, but only Rodawig was fortunate enough to survive the day.

Schedule adjustments

As the tournament began at a delayed 4:00 pm starting time because of the WSOP Main Event, a level was shaved off the day, and Thursday’s restart has also been pushed back an hour to 3:00 pm local time, when the players will return to level 15.
