WSOP Main Event – Ivey Puts On Masterclass

Best choice

Day 2c of the World Series of Poker Main Event brought the 2,571 survivors from Day 1c back to the felt in order to establish who would be heading into Day 3 of the world’s most prestigious poker tournament.

They had to survive another 5 two hour long levels to do so, with many not managing to. One player that certainly did manage to was Phil Ivey after he finished the day with not only the chip lead for Day 2c but for the entire event so far.

He finished on 505,000 chips putting him ahead of the chip leader from Day 2a/b who notched up 481,500.

Ivey is not the only big name to make it through either as John Juanda and PokerStars Team Pros Daniel Negreanu, Jake Cody and Barry Greenstein all did enough to see themselves into Day 3.

Whilst there were many names getting through , you could argue that some of the biggest could not. Phil Hellmuth, Gus Hansen, Doug Polk, Joe Cada, Joe Hachem, Scotty Nguyen, JC Tran and Dan Colman were all sent to the rail and will now have to wait another year.

We now head into Day 3 tomorrow where the fun is sure to continue, so please keep in touch with us if you are in need of being kept right up to date.
