Just like that, two levels have completed on Day 2a/b of the Main Event. Here are a few highlights from the last level of play.
Defending Champion Greg Merson made Day 2 with 81,650, and he has continued his hot streak today. We caught him winning a hand before the break that has upped his stack to 161,000, meaning that he has already doubled his stack on the day.
Another play you may remember from last year’s main event, 11th place finisher Elisabeth Hille, is having a great day too. She came into the day with 57,825, and in just two levels, she has worked it up to 130,000.
Unfortunately for our very own Chad Holloway, his main event has come to an end. Holloway started the day with 36,600, but wasn’t able to get much going, before he busted to the pocket queens of Jesse Yaginuma.
The tournament staff will be coloring up the green T25 chips while the players are taking their second 20-minute break of the day.
