The Thrill of a Day 2

• Nível 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

There’s something special about making Day 2 of a big poker tournament, and make no mistake this is a big one.

There is camaraderie amongst the players as well as rivalry. Some of them will have spent last night researching their opponents on the internet; looking at relative stack sizes and seat position. Making plans for who to Three-bet and who to avoid in the early skirmishes.

When some asks “How are you?” they know what it means and it is answered with something like “Twenty eight thousand, just.” It is the stack size that matters; the only thing that matters at this moment.

Everyone will have a Day 1 tale to tell. Whether it was how they were down to their last 10k in the first level after that horrible beat before fighting their way back to an average stack, or how they had a soft table and were able to chip up consistently throughout the day.

That’s all in the past now, the key is to make Day 3. Now that would be a tale to tell.

PokerNews will be bringing you all the action throughout the day.
