Samuel Phillips Leads After Day 2 of Event #52; Mercier Eyes Bracelet No. Six

Nível 20 : 5,000/10,000, 1,000 ante

After a slow start to the day here on Day 2 of Event #52: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em, the pace quickly picked up until there were only 23 players remaining.

Leading the way is Samuel Phillips (1,289,000), but only just. Phillips benefited from the late elimination of former NFL defensive end Richard Seymour late in the last level of the night to pip Jamie Florence (1,284,000) to the overnight chip lead.

Other players over 1,000,000 in chips include Mohsin Charania (1,045,000), Brandon Ageloff (1,200,000) and Griffin Malatino (1,114,000).

There are still a whole host of names still in the mix for the title, bracelet and $364,438 in prize money, most notably last year’s WSOP player of the year Jason Mercier (457,000). Joining him are Andy Frankenberger (525,000), and Rainer Kempe (240,000).

Mikhail Rudoy doubled through Christopher Chabris in the last hand of the night to leave his opponent with less than one big blind coming into Day 3.

The start of the day was marred by stalling with play just nine eliminations away from the money and a min-cash worth $2,254. Eventually the bubble burst when Noah Vaillancourt’s ace-queen was bested by the pocket Kings of Mohsin Charania during the first level of the day.

From there a steady stream of players headed to the cage. Those receiving a min-cash included Tom Schneider, Manig Loeser and Sergi Reixach, while four-time bracelet winnerJeff Madsen, Dominique Terzian and Andy Spears were lucky enough to ladder into the $2,346 payout.

Barry Greenstein notched yet another WSOP cash; his ninth this year, and took home $2,477 for his 156th place.

As the day drew one, another multiple bracelet winner left the field in Dan Heimiller (44th - $7,536), while Eugene Katchalov (35th - $9,107) and Kelly Minkin (26th - $11,144) both bust with less than two hours to go in the day.

Andy Frankenberger Takes Over the Chip Lead

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante
Andy Frankenberger
Andy Frankenberger

Just before the break, another hand was played which ended during the break.

A player in middle position raised to 14,000, JJ Liu called from the cutoff. Emil Ekvardt three-bet to 48,000, and Andy Frankenberger needed some more time to think. The break started, so some of the players walked away from the table. In the end, he shoved all in. The player in middle position and Liu both folded. Ekvardt called, and he had Frankenberger covered.

Andy Frankenberger: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Emil Ekvardt: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The board ran out {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{J-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{A-Spades} — no danger for Frankenberger, and he doubled up for the 312,500 he had behind.

Mohsin Charania Tries Out the "Cary Dime" Against Cary Katz

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 500 ante
Cary Katz
Cary Katz

On a {j-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{q-Diamonds} flop between Mohsin Charania and Cary Katz, both players checked. and the {k-Hearts} was dealt on the turn. Charania bet 5,000, mimicking a tactic famously used by Katz in this summer's Super High Roller Bowl, where Katz would min-bet turns. It was a tactic he used to great effect, especially on Day 1 of the tournament.

"You want to see a free card with jack-ten?" asked Katz before electing to call.

Charania checked the {4-Clubs} river, and Katz checked behind, saying, "Jack's good."

Charania shook his head and went to muck, but not before Katz turned over {a-Spades}{5-Spades} for ace-high. Then Charania mucked.

"You need to bet bigger!" said Katz as he raked in the small but meaningful pot.

Phil Collins Wins Against All Odds

Nível 17 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante
Phil Collins
Phil Collins

Phill Collins shoved all in preflop for 101,000 in total and was called by Emil Ekvardt, who had him covered.

Phil Collins: {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Emil Ekvardt: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Collins needed a lot of help to stay in the tournament, as Ekvardt had a higher pair.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{9-Hearts}, giving Ekvardt a set. Collins got up from his chair, as he could see the elimination coming.

The dealer burned a card and revealed the {3-Diamonds} on the turn, and people started peeking at the table to see what was happening. Collins now also had a set and a small chance to stay alive.

The dealer burned another card and put the {3-Spades} on the river, giving Collins backdoor quads to win the hand.

There were gasps and sounds of amazement from the nearby places, and some of them wandered over to see what was happening. Collins just sat down again and started stacking up his chips.

Two-Tabling Jason Mercier

When players resumed after their first break of the day there was a notable absentee from his seat. 2016 WSOP Player of the Year and five-time bracelet winner Jason Mercier was over in the Brasilia room playing in the $3,000 Limit Hold'em 6-Max Day 2 where there are 68 players remaining.

39 of them will get paid and with Mercier sitting pretty with an above-average stack in this event, he will be hoping to make the money in another tournament today.
