The second day of World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star is over and now there are only 44 players left , all of whom are guaranteed $16,890 each. Paul Volpe, a well-known online grinder who finished second in the WPT L.A. Poker Classic last week, is in a decent lead with 1,394,00. In fact, his closest opponent, Brendon Rubie, has less than 900k.

Volpe is not the only poker star who's doing well. Mario Ho, Antonio Esfandiari and Erik Seidel all have about 800,000 chips and all are looking very strong. It will be interesting to see how Day 3 plays out. Right now it looks like we have some big names on the final table - where a $1,138,350 first prize is up for grabs!

The remaining field will need to play all the way down to the final WPT television table of six. When the field hits the final 36, action will remain six-handed for the rest of the tournament (the final seven will be seated together for the television final table bubble). Tune back for all of the action, brought to you by the WPT Live Updates team from San Jose, California.

Volpe is sure thinking about winning this, after taking second place at the WPT LA (the thrilling final HU Paul vs Paul). If he gets the chance to be on the final HU again, he will play in a different way. But there’s still a lot to play before reaching that level, and some well-known names to put some pressure on the game too, like Esfandiari, just to mention one.
