Eichhorn is trailed closely near the top of the leaderboard by WSOP bracelet winners John Monnette, Adam Friedman, and Scott Bohlman, while defending champion Jaswinder Lally is in the mix for an opportunity to make a run at the repeat title.

Eichhorn holds the lead after steadily building his stack throughout the day before a big charge to nearly 300,000 towards the end of the night. His best placement at the WSOP is a fourth place finish in this event, and he will look for another run on Day 2 to set up a chance to improve on that.

Friedman also returned to mixed game dominance with pots throughout the day, including an elimination of Josh Arieh in five card draw. Robert Campbell is also in the hunt after running it up early in a seven card stud hand against Kim Stone, who had trouble with Campbell all day. Campbell’s run to a big bag was slowed down near the end of the night when he surrendered a double to John Racener.

Other notables surviving to see Day 2 include Peter Gelencser, Brandon Cantu, Bradley Jansen, Matt Waxman, Brian Rast, Lawrence Berg, John Cernuto, Nathan Gamble, and Norman Chad.

Day 2 will return on Thursday at 2:00 p.m. local time in the Bally’s ballroom to play ten 60-minute levels with a 15-minute break every two. There will be a 60-minute dinner break at the conclusion of Level 21, and Day 2 survivors will return on Friday to determine a winner at a time that has yet to be determined.

Robert Campbell: {x-}{x-}/{a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}/{x-}
John Racener: {x-}{x-}/{q-Spades}{5-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades}/{x-}

Robert Campbell bet on fifth street and was called by John Racener. Campbell bet again on sixth, then called when Racener moved all in.

Campbell finished with {2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for a low and a pair of sevens. "50-50," Racener said while he peeled his last card.

Racener turned over the {4-Diamonds} to go with the {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades} to make the wheel, scooping the pot and doubling up right at the end of the night.

Lawrence Berg
Lawrence Berg

No-Limit Hold'em

Action was heads up with a full board of {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Spades}{a-Spades} when Adam Friedman bet 6,500 from the cutoff. Lawrence Berg, the 2016 $1,500 Dealer's Choice champion, raised to 21,000 on the button and Friedman went into the tank.

After considering his options, Friedman tossed in the chips to call. Berg turned over {8-Spades}{7-Spades} for the flush and Friedman tossed his losing hand in the muck.

Rhodes Forces a Fold from Friedman

Level 15

No-Limit Hold'em

Josh Rhodes, who finished 15th in this event last year, defended his big blind against an under-the-gun raise from Adam Friedman. Rhodes checked the {10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{q-Hearts} flop before calling a 3,000 bet.

Both players checked the {2-Spades} turn. When the {q-Clubs} fell on the river, Rhodes led out for 11,000.

Friedman gave the decision some thought before flicking his cards across the table towards the dealer, awarding the pot to Rhodes.
