Day 2 of Event #55: The Poker Player's Championship came to an end about 2 hours ago. In the lead is Benjamin Lamb, winner of the $10k PLO Championship, with 704,500 chips, closely followed by Gus Hansen (688k) and Sebastian Ruthenberg (669k). These 3 and another 71 players will return to Rio's poker room tomorrow and play Day 3 of the tournament.

A prizepool of $6,144,000 is up for grabs and the winner will walk away with $1,720,000 - the largest 1st place prize so far at the 2011 WSOP! The remaining field of players includes many big names, so we can expect to see some great poker!

gonna be tough holding onto that first spot for Lamb as many good players are still remaining, ready to battle for that big first prize and he has only a marginal chip lead.

Far to early to say anything. Still more than half the field is in the tourney. I guess this one will go on for at least two more days.

I have to agree with shokaku here, it's way to early to say who will take this, but you need to observe this is truly a great evet organized by world series of poker Smile

Of course the buy in is pretty high but i don't think this is a probles for the type of players are allowed to register, they are all wsop winners after all, so i don't think 50k is a problem for any of them Big Smile

Anyway, by the looks of the competition you definately need to notice than Benjamin Lamb it's a great poker shape for sure after winning that PLO bracelet this year, but again he is closely followed by Gus Hansen, and we all know that Gus is just an excellent poker player, no matter what game: plo, no limit holdem Blink

I'll really follow this wsop even closely Big Smile
