The 2021 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event has concluded the first of two Day 2s. All survivors of Day 1a, 1b, and 1d returned to their seats in the Brasilia and Pavilion Room and along with the late entrants, that made for more than 3,000 hopefuls from all over the world back in action in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. After the completion of five two-hour levels, that field was cut down to more than half on Day 2abd.

Two Canadians can be found near the top of the leaderboard as Rameez Shahid (731,700) and Damien Steel (649,000) emerged among the chip leaders. Not far behind Shahid are David Mock (679,700), Farhad Jamasi (635,000), Raul Martinez (628,100), Steve Foutty (620,000), and Mitchell Halverson (617,600).

2014 WSOP APAC Main Event champion Scott Davies started his journey on Day 2abd with just 17,600. However, he became one of several contestants who finished the night with a stack of more than half a million in chips, as he wrapped up the night inside the top ten (615,100).

Other notables who advanced with healthy stacks are David Coleman (613,000), Johan Schumacher (597,000), Robert Cowen (596,400), Nick Petrangelo (490,200), Anton Wigg (490,000), Mustapha Kanit (473,300), Brian Altman (440,100), Roman Valerstein (424,400), Japanese vlogger Masato Yokosawa (365,700), and GGPoker ambassador Jason Koon (361,200).

The women in the field also had a strong showing as Brittney Stout (394,900), Nadya Magnus (353,400), Jessica Cai (303,000), Kathy Liebert (285,500), Ana Freitas (239,100), 2021 Ladies Event champion Lara Eisenberg (229,300), Kitty Kuo (203,100), Maria Ho (199,000), and Sarah Stefan (129,400) all made it through to Day 3.

It was one of the busiest days of the 2021 WSOP so far as the constant riffling of chips could be heard throughout the entire Pavilion Room. For the first time, the flagship tournament allowed late registration on Day 2, and players could enter for the first two levels and the following break.

Some 145 contenders opted to buy into Day 2abd during the first two levels instead of jumping into Day 1f, which kicked off one hour later in the Amazon Room. Along with all of the Day 1 entries across the six starting days, the flagship event of the festival has attracted more than 6,500 entries already.

When the dust had settled upon completion of Level 10, more than half of the field was gone and all those still in the mix condensed into four different areas in the Pavilion Room bagged up their chips. Some notables who failed to make it that far were Jeff Hakim, Asi Moshe, Adam Friedman, Rep Porter, Mikita Badziakouski, Sam Grafton, Jeff Gross, as well as the GGPoker online streamers Patrick Tardif and Kevin Martin.

Maria Konnikova saw her Main Event run come to an end when she was involved in a three-way all-in with pocket jacks. Pete Skyllas flopped an inferior set of tens but spiked the one-outer to score a double knockout. Melanie Weisner, Lexy Gavin, Lena Evans, and Kelly Minkin, Kyna England, and Danielle Andersen were also sent to the rail.

Among the former WSOP Main Event champions, Tom McEvoy, Jerry Yang, Ryan Riess, and Doyle Brunson all saw their hopes of a repeat victory end.

The survivors of Day 2abd now have one day off before returning to their seats on Thursday, November 11, at 11 am local time. They will then be joined by all those who make the cut for the second Day 2, which features all survivors of Day 1c, Day 1e, and Day 1f along with the players who enter during the late registration period.

When the action for Day 3 resumes with blinds starting at 1,200/2,400 with a big ante of 2,400, the prize pool information will be known already and the money bubble is expected to burst early on Day 4. Stay tuned for more action from Las Vegas, as the PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor from start to finish for the pinnacle live poker event of the year.

zedmaster84 • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Lara Eisenberg raised to 4,000 and table big stack Robert Cowen then three-bet to 14,000. Masato Horiuchi four-bet jammed for around 50,000 and Eisenberg rejammed to force a quick fold from Cowen.

Masato Horiuchi: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Lara Eisenberg: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The kicker played on the {8-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} as neither player hit anything for Eisenberg to notch up the elimination.

Shashikhina Chips Up Through Aggression

connorrichards • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante
Sonia Shashikhina
Sonia Shashikhina

Sonia Shashikhina was in the big blind and three-bet when facing an open from the under-the-gun player, who called the raise.

Shashikhina continued with a bet of 13,000 on the flop reading {j-Clubs}{k-Spades}{a-Diamonds} and her opponent called.

Shashikhina sized up to 50,000 on the {10-Clubs} turn to put her opponent all-in and he folded after some deliberation.
