WSOP 2011 - $2,500 Limit Hold ‘em 6-max Day 2 completed

Monday, 13 June 2011

The $2,500 Limit Hold ‘em 6-max event attempts to make Limit Hold ‘em exciting by reducing the number of players. Evidently it worked to an extent as Richard Lyndaker, the online cash game grinder better known as “nutsinho”, is towards the top of the chip counts with two tables remaining.

In total, 354 players entered the event to give us a prize pool of over $800,000 with the winner due to take home $213,431. At the moment the most likely person for that job is Alexander Kuzmin, who leads the last four by a huge twenty big bets with 412,500; almost six figures more than second-place Andrey Zaichenko.

Lyndaker is joined by Matt Matros in the final 12 as the list of notable names shortened throughout the day. During Day 2 we lost David Chiu, Shannon Shorr, Justin Bonomo and Clayton Newman, all of whom cashed but fell short of the final two tables. Each remaining player has at least $11,291 more than they did on Saturday but it’s the final table and the first prize of $213,000 that everyone is looking to.
