Day 2 Completed
Day 2 of Event #27: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed began with 201 players from the total 959 entries. Only 21 made it through the 10.5 levels of play.
London poker pro Max Silver finished the day as the overwhelming chip leader after amassing a stack of 2,219,000. Silver’s stack continually increased after the dinner break, and he more than doubled his stack in the final two-and-a-half levels of play. With plenty of tournament poker success to his credit, Silver is still looking for his WSOP title.
The next biggest stack is just under half that of Silver at 1,160,000, and that belongs to Morten Mortensen. Rounding out the top five heading into tomorrow are Jerry Payne (955,000), Chris Moorman (906,000), and Onur Unsal (893,000).
Also still in contention to win gold Friday are bracelet winners Steve Sung (840,000), Michael Gagliano(840,000), and Simeon Naydenov (364,000), along with Ryan Tosoc (709,000), Samantha Cohen (482,000), Nacho Barbero (382,000), James Chen (283,000), and Pratyush Buddiga (169,000).
The remaining 21 restart at 12 p.m. to play down to a winner.

Michael Gagliano raised to 30,000 in middle position and Pratyush Buddiga went all in for 184,000 in the small blind. The big blind folded and Gagliano got a count.
He thought about it and eventually folded with some showing of reluctance.
Here are the approximate chip counts from the final 21 players with only 30 minutes of play remaining for the night. Max Silver has extended his chip lead in the last couple levels and is way out in front.
Players are taking one more 15-minute break and will return to play half of the next level (30 more minutes) before the bag and tag.
James Chen and Richard Tuhrim got all in pre-flop with Chen being the shorter of the two stacks at 155,000.
Chen tabled and Tuhrim showed .
The board ran out and the ace on the river keeps Chen alive.
