Giuseppe Pantaleo Leads 12 Remining Players into Day 3 of WSOPc Las Vegas Main Event


12 players have navigated their way through Day 2 of Event #16: $1,700 No Limit Holdem Main Event and will return to battle to a winner on Tuesday at 12 p.m. local time. A total of 131 players returned for Day 2 in hopes of getting one step closer winning a World Series of POKER Main Event Ring. They all have $14,278 locked up out of the $1,013,535 prize pool but they will obviously all have their eye on the $192,831 top prize.

The players held nothing back on Day 2. The chips were flying and players were getting in the mix. Some big names found their way into Day 2 of the main. One of the best online MTT players of all time, Chris Moorman, took his shot but would fall just after the three table redraw. Two time bracelet winners Scott Ball and Eric Baldwin both went deep and held chips but could not finish the job. Anthony Hu was looking strong and taking down pots early-on but a few flips didn’t go his way and he would fall 16th. 

However, there are still plenty of crushers in the final 12. Peter Hengsakul has already been heads up for a ring this series and will look to make it there again on Day 3. Nick Marchington held chip lead for most of the day but will enter Day 3 in a comfortable 4th place to start the day. WSOP bracelet winner Giuseppe Pantaleo is sitting in pole position with a healthy stack of 2,800,000 but there are players right on his heals. Italy’s Mario Colavita is hanging tough with 2,490,000 and Kevin Calenzo sits with 2,390,000 to round out the top three.
