The WPT's late registration policy attracted a number of top pros to the second day of the WPT Championship at the Bellagio overnight but not could match Faraz "The Toilet" Jaka.
Jaka was joined at the top of the leader board by Shawn Buchanan with both of them amassing stacks of almost 600,000 chips, almost 100,000 ahead of nearest rival Jusin Bonomo and Josh Gould.Of the late arrivals it was David Williams and Phil Hellmuth who enjoyed the best day. Williams finished tenth in chips on 363,300. The Poker Brat needed a heft slice of luck to remain in contention and duly got it after hitting a two outer on the river with his pocket aces to overcome Kathy Liebert's set of sevens. Hellmuth finished with a just above stack.The former World Champion is in a much better position than fellow late arrivals Chris Ferguson, Tom Dwan and Andy Bloch who all busted out on Day 2. Joining them on the rail were Phil Ivey, Chau Giang and Daniel Negreanu.There are still plenty of big names among the 98 players vying for the $1.5m first prize including defending champion Yevgeniy Timoshenko, David Benyamine, Howard Lederer, Brandon Cantu, Brock Parker and Dave Ulliott.The leading chiop counts are as follows:1 Faraz Jaka 597,100 2 Shawn Buchanan 596,600 3 Justin Bonomo 503,600 4 Joshua Gould 502,900 5 Brandon Cantu 489,000 6 Todd Terry 475,600 The action resumes at 8pm UK time.
