Event #2: No-Limit Hold'em (buy-in $1,500 ), which started on Monday and was the first WSOP event of 2012 that anyone could enter, is now down to 15 players and play will resume today at 1pm local time with Jacob Bazeley out in front (1,291,000 chips).

JP Kelly, from England, is the only non-American with chips left and he's probably the most experienced tournament player of the remaining players since he finished 26th in the Main Event last year and has 2 bracelets under his belt from 2009. But he's up against other experienced tournament players such as Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst (1 WSOP Bracelet), Andrew Badecker (1 WSOP Bracelet) etc, so Day 3 most defiently won't be like a walk in the park on a summer afternoon for Mr. Kelly.

We will be back with another update tomorrow morning!

It’s interesting looking at this rank and only finding one non-American in the list, locals rules. He is also the most experienced player, but that doesn’t mean nothing as, at this point of the tourney, if he’s not leading, few will remember his earlier conquests when playing directly against him. Vanessa Selbst is running very well, it would be nice to see her going further on this.

A briton looking to take a bracelet!

There's been some good UK players at the tournies but we don't tend to make a huge noise in the WSOP - hope he gets a good finish.
