Event #8: €25,500 No-Limit Hold'em Super High Roller

The First Two Casualties on Day 2

zedmaster84 • Level 15: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante
James Romero

Liv Boeree and Marius Gierse were among the shortest stacks coming into Day 2 and both were eliminated right away. James Romero doubled through Wai Leong Chan and the latter then ended up all in with Romero on the button and Steffen Sontheimer in the big blind playing for the bigger side pot. On the {9-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{Q-Spades} turn, Sontheimer check-folded to a bet of 325,000 and the cards were turned over.

Wai Leong Chan: {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
James Romero: {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}

The {8-Hearts} river kept the hopes of Chan for a miracle alive.
