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!
