WSOP Main Event Day 2c: Sam Holden Ends Day 15th In Chips

Sam Holden

Day 2c of the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event has been completed and UK & Ireland PokerNews are delighted to report a whole host of our players have made it through to Day 3. At the end of Day 2c our best placed player was none other than 888 Poker sponsored pro Sam Holden; one of the nine men who made it through to the November Nine in this very tournament last year.

Holden ended the day with a healthy stack of 352,600 chips, enough to place him 15th at the end of Day 2c and 24th overall with 1,765 players remaining in total. As mentioned, Holden reached the final table of the 2011 Main Event where he busted out in ninth spot and it would be one of the most remarkable results ever should he reach the finale once again. He knows better than most that there is still a long way left to go before he can start to even consider reaching his second final table in as many years.

Other high flyers from Day 2c include Karim Jomeen on 328,600 chips, Triple Crown winner Jake Cody on 322,000, Neil Ryder with 283,000, James Keys with 234,400, former Irish Open champion James Mitchell and his 213,100 stack and another former November Nine member in Eoghan O'Dea who is armed with 193,000 chips.

In total 50 of our players made it through Day 2c, their chip stacks are shown in the table below:

Day 3 gets underway at 12:00 Las Vegas time (20:00 UK) and will continue until another five 120-minute levels have been played out. Although it is highly unlikely the money bubble will burst, once Day 3 is in the books that magical 666th place with be ever closer and the likelihood of our boys and girls cashing will be even greater.

Do not forget to follow all the action unfold before your very eyes on our Live Reporting pages. Good luck to everyone involved on Day 3.
