The final 15 players in Event #24: $1,500 Limit Hold’em are set and heading back tomorrow at 2 p.m. for a chance at the first place prize of $177,985 and a WSOP gold bracelet.
World Series of Poker Hall of Famer Barry Greenstein (316,000) has three bracelets already and is seeking number four.
Ray Henson has four WSOP circuit rings, but is still seeking his first WSOP bracelet. He got close in 2015 when he finished third in The Colossus for $308,761. The remaining players all seeking their first WSOP gold bracelet, including Day 2 chip leader Nancy Nguyen (574,000)
Mike Reed (364,000) started Day 2 as the chip leader and held it for most of the day until the final two levels.
Three-time WSOP bracelet winner Ian Johns (18th place) almost made it through to Day 3 after doubling up a handful of times, but eventually he fell to Mark Bassaly (461,000) who knocked out four people late in play on Day 2 to take a big jump up the standings.
