The second day at the World Poker Tour Carribean Main event came to a close just a few moments ago. There are 32 players left in the tournament and the chip leader is Thomas Laviano with 402,000.
Other big stacks at the end of Day 2 included Jean-Nicolas Fortin (361,500), Tony Dunst (282,000) and Day 1 chip leader Ebony Kenney, who bagged up 258,000 (7th place) at the end of play.
There are 4 Champions Club members left in the mix of players: Sean Jazayeri (251,000), Giacomo Fundaro (237,500), Bobby Oboodi (236,500), and last but not least Marvin Rettenmaier (picture - 153,000) from Germany. Let's hope that at least one of them make it to the final table and gets a shot at another WPT title!
The money bubble will burst early during Day 3 when 24 players remain. A minimum cash is worth $5,700 and the winner will take home $145,000 and a $15,400 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship in April at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
The final table we will played this weekend. We will post a final table recap first thing Monday morning.
