Some of the game’s most famous faces might have had targets on their back during Day 2 of the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Classic, but that didn’t stop them performing under pressure.
Having welcomed a record breaking 643 players to San Jose, just 45 now remained with six of those being shooting stars. Indeed, at the close of play it was Maria Ho and Antonio Esfandiari who were shining the brightest after bagging 805,000 and 787,000 respectively. Both players’ profitable day was overshadowed by the stacks of Brendon Rubie (890,000) and chip leader Paul Volpe 1,394,000.Volpe is certainly on a roll of late as he finished second at the recent L.A. Poker Classic for $651,170 behind Canada’s Paul Klann.Away from the top of the pile, the UK’s Chris Brammer put in a strong effort during Day 2, making it into the money but just short of Day 3. Indeed, the British pro hit the rail in 61st place but still took home $15,110.Tomorrow’s session will see the 43 survivors whittled down further before the final few players return to compete for the $1,138,350 top prize.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
