Day 2 of Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em BOUNTY has concluded. While 298 players returned at the start of the day, only 29 hopefuls remain in contention after another ten levels of 60 minutes each.

Right behind him sits Ryan Leng with 1,381,000 in chips.

Other notables left in the field include 2013 Main Event runner-up Jay Farber (901,000), Jamie O'Connor (also 901,000), Russell Rosenblum (730,000), Mikhail Semin (677,000) and Marvin Rettenmaier (316,000).

Alex Whitenstall was the top stack entering the day but he got eliminated in 41th place for $5,722. Others who ran out of chips include Aaron Massey, who busted right before the end of day in the 36th place for $6,946, Dieter Dechant (54th - $4,765), Jan Eric Schwippert (56th - $4,014), Men Nguyen (66th - $3,419), James Mackey (89th - $2,576) and Andrey Zaichenko (144th - $1,846) also got eliminated.

The 29 remaining players will return on Wednesday. June 27 at 12 p.m. and play will continue until a winner has been reached.

Massive Pot for Oconner

gaellej • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

On a raised pot, the flop was showing {10-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and four players were active in the hand. Justin Libert checked, as well as Samuel Miller. Jamie Oconner bet 33,000 and it was called by Jay Farber and Liberto. Miller raised it 115,000 and after a long tank, Oconner announced all in for a stack worth 329,000. Farber and Liberto folded their hand and the two remaining players tabled their cards:

Samuel Miller: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Jamie Oconner: {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}

With a set of sevens, Oconner had the dominating hand, and the turn {4-Hearts} and river {6-Hearts} didn't change anything. Oconner earned the massive pot and Miller fell down to 130,000 after that hand.

Quercio Puts it All-In With Nickels

MartianNews • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Anthony Quercio moved all in from under the gun and he found a caller in Quan Tran, who was in the small blind. The players then turned over their hands and Quercio would be at risk.

Anthony Quercio: {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Quan Tran: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}

The flop came down {9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Tran would need to connect. The turn fell the {10-Clubs} and Tran was calling for a nine on the river. But none of his outs came as the {8-Spades} hit the felt.

By the end of the hand, Tran was a short stack and Quercio had secured another double up.
