The chip leader is Michael Trivett with 133,900 chips, putting him about 30k ahead of Sean Small's second-place stack of 103,700. Play will continue at 1 p.m. local time tomorrow in the Amazon Room at the Rio, Las Vegas. The winner will take home $84,915 and a WSOP bracelet!

Jake Cody is also out of event #2. He didn't have much luck. He got his money in against a shorter stack with 33 against 34 on a 344 flop :O
Built back up again then lost with Q9 on a 944A9 board against AA. Then went out with a 910 btn shove and the bb's AJ held.

That would be the kind of tourney I could afford to enter if it was anywhere near me,....but I'm wondering if ANY person can just register and get in,...or are those big tourneys something you need an invitation to...?

Things are hot around here, but known players have a lot of work ahead to get to the final table action. The low profilers are becoming each time better, which turns the game even more interesting!
