After two full days of playing in Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-handed at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, a field of 1,663 players has been whittled down to the last 27 hopefuls. They'll be returning to the felt on Saturday, June 9 at 12 p.m. to continue their bid for a coveted WSOP bracelet. Many notables are still in contention to capture the first-place prize of $378,743 on top of WSOP champion honors.

Among those that will come back for Day 3 are Luke Brereton (767,000), Bart Lybaert (716,000), Pierre Calamusa (690,000), Ryan D’Angelo (585,000), Nick Schulman (280,000) and Ivan Deyra (237,500).

The largest stack belongs to Gabriel Baumgartner, who will bring 987,000 chips into Day 3. With a little bit more than $10,000 in career tournament earnings, he will be looking for his biggest live cash and a first gold bracelet. He’s followed by Alexandro Tricarico with 983,000. The Belgian player boasts $260,000 in live tournaments winner and will be one to watch on the final day.

Day 2 Action

On Day 2, 264 players came together today and the bubble quickly burst 20 minutes into play. Amongst those who cashed were Jake Schwartz (39th - $7,819), Gil Thierry (42nd - $7,819), Jared Hamby (50th - $5,413), Alexandre Reard (75th - $3,984), Jeff Madsen (78th - $3,984), Tom Koral (114th - $2,835) and Tom Marchese (124th - $2,835). 2014 Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson fell in 64th position for $4,608.

Thomas Muehloecker ($4,608) saw his attempt end in 62nd place after his pocket aces got cracked by pocket queens in a preflop all-in situation. Muehloecker was followed by three-time bracelet winner Adrian Mateos, who cashed the same amount for busting in 61st. Yordan Petrov (55th - $4,608) also got eliminated in a hand he will remember for a while. Flopping the nut straight with seven-six on a board containing two diamonds, Petrov got his stack in on three streets. The river brought the third diamond and Brereton showed seven-six of diamonds, for the same nut straight that improved to a flush.

For Tricarico, a pot with a rivered flush with ten-five of hearts against the pocket queens of Foad Larki proved pivotal towards his end-of-day big stack. Larki held a set of queens and was eliminated in 52nd place. Tricarico claimed top spot after the hand but Baumgartner pipped him for the end of day chip lead in the final stages of the day.

Action resumes at noon local time on Saturday, June 9, where the blinds will resume at Level 21 with 60-minute levels to be played down to a winner. There will be a 15-minute break after every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break scheduled after the sixth level of the day (≈ 6.30pm).

Continue to follow along with the PokerNews live reporting team to find out who will be crowned the next $1,500 6-handed champion.

Lybaert Eliminates Stewart

Nível 19 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante
Scott Stewart
Scott Stewart

Scott Stewart raised from the button and Bart Lybaert three-bet from the big blind which Stewart called.

The flop fell {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Lybaert announced all in. Stewart, who was up to 600,000 earlier on, was sat with a stack of around 300,000 and was covered by Lybaert. He weighed up his options before ultimately making the call.

Bart Lybaert: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Scott Stewart: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}

Lybaert was ahead with a better overpair to the flop and held on the {5-Diamonds} turn and {J-Diamonds} river to eliminate Stewart and regain the chip lead.

Tricarico Rivers Flush to Take Chip Lead

Nível 18 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante
Alexandro Tricarico
Alexandro Tricarico

Alexandro Tricarico raised from the hijack and Foad Larki called from the button before the big blind also called. The flop fell {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and only Larki called a continuation-bet from Tricarico.

The {a-Spades} hit the turn and Tricarico fired again this time for 47,000, which was met by another call from Larki.

On the {2-Hearts} river, Tricarico pushed all in, and Larki called without much hesitation.

Alexandro Tricarico: {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Foad Larki: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Tricarico had hit his flush on the river to claim a huge pot and send Larki to the rail after he had slow-played his set of queens.

Schwartz Cracks Kings

Nível 17 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante
Jake Schwartz
Jake Schwartz

Andrew Yim shoved from the cutoff only to see Jake Schwartz reshove on the button and, once the blinds had folded, the players' hands were turned on their backs.

Andrew Yim: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Jake Schwartz: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Board: {j-Spades}{a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Yim was ahead preflop with pocket kings and had a good chance of doubling up until the flop came down ace-jack and Schwartz took the lead with two pair. The jack of hearts improved his hand to a full house and the river was the nine of hearts, which meant Yim was the next player to fall from the field.

Nível 13 : 800/1,600, 200 ante
Ryan D’Angelo
Ryan D’Angelo

The board read {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{k-Clubs} when Ryan D'Angelo moved all in for 135,000. There was already 100,000 in the pot before D'Angelo's shove and current chip leader Mark Radoja was the man who faced the decision.

He counted out his orange 5k chips several times and thought for nearly four minutes before calling the clock on himself.

'I like my stack' said Radoja.

He asked for a 10-second countdown and by the time the number five was announced he made the call.

Ryan D'Angelo: {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Mark Radoja: {10-Spades}{8-Spades}

Bracelet winner D'Angelo was ahead with top pair against two-time bracelet winner Radoja and swooped the pot to double up.

Jeff Madsen
Jeff Madsen

There were three players to the flop of {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} when Seth Fischer bet 4,000. Tom Marchese called before Jeff Madsen moved all in. Fischer then decided to reshove and Marchese snap-called.

Jeff Madsen: {q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Seth Fischer: {q-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Tom Marchese: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

Turn: {7-Diamonds}
River: {2-Diamonds}

Madsen had flopped two pair, Fischer held a pair of queens, and Marchese had the overpair to the board with aces. Four-time WSOP bracelet winner Madsen held after the board had been completed to win the main pot while Marchese took the side pot from Fischer.

Ivan Deyra
Ivan Deyra

The board read {7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs} when Dung Gomer Nguyen put Ivan Deyra to the test by moving all in. With play just four spaces from the money, Deyra went into the tank. He occasionally checked the clock to see if it had changed before making the call.

Ivan Deyra: {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Dung Gomer Nguyen: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

River: {a-Diamonds}

Deyra was ahead with a straight while Nguyen had a set of sevens and needed to improve on the river to eliminate the Frenchman, but the river ace was no help meaning Deyra survived and doubled up to 48,000.
