Another round of WSOP Main Event action got underway last night as Day 2A/B welcomed almost 2,000 players back to the felt.
With the survivors from Day 1A and Day 1B now combined into one mass of hopeful grinders, the action inside the Rio started as a mass wave of nerves and betting. Indeed, with a place in Day 3 on the horizon and another step towards the $10 million top prize possible the session's largest stacks didn't want to lose the momentum they'd gained on Day 1. At the start of play the likes of Martin Jacobson (the overall chip leader), Erik Seidel, Matt Affleck and Antonio Esfandiari were all amongst the biggest stacks. However, as the day progressed only three of the four aforementioned players would survive as Affleck found himself unable to emulate the deep run he enjoyed in 2010.While a stellar cast of players, including the defending champion Ryan Riess, were still alive at the close of the session, the day belonged to Tim Stansifer. The recreational grinder managed to rake in 481,500 chips to finish ahead of Tom Cannuli (407,800), Manir Shahin (361,900) and Martin Jacobson (342,700). Around 700 players made it through to Day 3 where they will have a chance to move one step closer to a minimum payout of $18,406 (693rd place).Day 2C will get underway tomorrow when the final split session will whittle down the remaining players before the surviving players are all combined on Day 3.
