We began Day 2 with 205 players and reached the money in the fourth level of play. When all was said and done, we were down to our final 26.
The end-of-day chip leader was Jacob Schindler (711,000) who increased his stack almost ten-fold in the last four levels of play.
Daniel Makowsky and James Mackey came into the day as our chip leaders, but bust in 101st and 87th place respectively. Some notable players that made the money, but fell short of Day 3, included Barny Boatman (75th), Dan O’Brien (55th), Jesse Sylvia (52nd), Keven Stammen (49th) and James Dempsey (44th).
Hot on Schindler’s heels is Ryan Olisar (686,000) who scored a huge double up through Matthew Lapossie. Lapossie would recover though and his active play has him positioned 4th in chips (623,000). We will also keep an eye on Ryan Jaconetti who was also very active here on Day 2 and is stacked third in chips at 663,000.
Notables Dylan Linde, Layne Flack and Matt Affleck also survived the day and will be looking to run deep into Day 3.
We will be back at it tomorrow at 1 p.m. local time as the 26 remaining players will have their eye on WSOP gold and a first place prize of $548,460. Please join us tomorrow for complete Day 3 action.
