WSOPE €5,300 Mixed Match Day 2 – Schwartz Heads 16

Noah Schwartz

Event #3 at the World Series of Poker Europe was played out alongside two other events yesterday with it bringing the field down to the final 16 from the 72 players that began the day. Five of those players that started the day were late registrations hoping to make a dramatic impact on Day 2 with each of them having differing results.

The chip leader come the end of the day was Noah Schwartz with a stack of 262,000, giving him a slight edge over the rest of the field. He will be gunning for a WSOPE bracelet here, but still has many players behind him that are more than capable of stealing it away from him.

Still involved are Shannon Shorr, Dan O’Brien, Phil Ivey and Joe Keuther with them now guaranteed of a payout as only the top 16 will earn a cash.

One player who will not be cashing is Phil Hellmuth, who was chasing his 100th career WSOP cash, he fell in 24th place and will now have to wait for another event. Players that joined him on the rail on Day 2 included Angel Guillen, David Baker, Davidi Kitai, Jeff Gross and Jason Duval. Hellmuth was of course quick to vent his frustrations via Twitter.
