Day 2 of this year's WPT World Championship event from the World Poker Tour (WPT) came to a conclusion yesterday with Eric Afriat topping the leaderboard.
As 200 players became 68 at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, the likes of Anthony Gregg, Scott Seiver and Day 1B chip leader Jason Koon followed Afriat while this shift in dynamics saw Mukul Pahuja claim the Season XII Player Of The Year title.Having secured five cashes, three final table appearances and $1.45 million in total prize money, Pahuja managed to establish himself as the season's top player while also securing a record number of points. The American pro’s record-breaking points tally of 3,450 points is the highest ever earned by a competitor in a single season and was far above the 2,150 took by runner-up Shaun Suller.Day 2 also revealed that the New Jersey event will have a new winner after defending champion David ‘Chino’ Rheem failed to take part despite having a free seat into the tournament. The Los Angeles native decided to stay out west following some confusion as to the price of his spot into the WPT World Championship.After being informed that he could have taken advantage of the free seat, Rheem shrugged off the situation and stated that ‘it is what it is’ and that he had decided to attend ‘Choice instead’. Bluff Europe can only he assume he means the infamous Choice Centre, which is championed by the likes of Daniel Negreanu.WPT World Championship Day 2 Chip Leaders:1. Eric Afriat - 1,003,0002. Anthony Gregg - 567,0003. Athanasios Polychronopoulos - 542,5004. Scott Seiver - 539,5005. Ryan D'Angelo - 519,5006. Jason Koon - 500,500
