The $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event is rapidly heading towards the business end of proceedings with just 42 of the 3,389 starters still in the hunt for the bracelet.
Leading the way is the familiar figure of Gavin Smith. Last year's mixed hold'em bracelet winner closed the day on 864,000 chips, just ahead of James Boyle on 850,000 and Ryan Goindoo on 838,000.Leicester's Hasmukh Khodiyara is the sole British representative left, ending day two in tenth place with 471,000 chips. It's been quite a few months for Khodiyara who secured his trip to Vegas after winning Black Belt Poker's WSOP Warrior Master League. The $20,000 package included seats in the Main Event and one other tournament. Khodiyara has put that extra entry to excellent use and is already guaranteed at least $14,914. The top seven finishers will all pocket a six-figure score with the winner set to walk away with $777,928.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
