Two of three Day 2 flights are in the books now and about 800 players are through to Day 3 of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event. The chip leader (at the moment - Day 2C still to be played) is Nick Schwarmann (413,600 chips) who overtook the lead from Jason DeWitt (ranked 2nd with 382,900) during the last level of Day 2. Schwarmann, from Orlando, Fla. has more than $400,000 in tournament earnings, including a 2nd place finish at this year's WSOP (Event #38: $2,500 NLH Four-Handed).

Now, two of the biggest names to make it through Day 2 with plenty of chips were former main event champions Doyle Brunson and Greg Merson. Brunson (two-time main event winner) started Day 2 with 81,025 chips and finished the day with 224,000! Merson, the winner of the 2012 Main Event, started with 81,650 in chips and finished with 275,000 after a fantastic day at the tables. It will be interesting to follow Brunson and Merson during Day 3!

We will be back with another WSOP Main Event update tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Go Doyle! Damn, I was wanting him to take this event down at least one more time. I always liked watching him play and miss watching High Stakes. He would just kick back and relax as he monitored the players and the table. When he was in a hand he usually faired well. Wishing him the best of luck!

Awesome run by Doyle if you consider the age that he has and also the health problems that he has some months ago.

Considering that this could be one of the last tournaments that he will play i would not mind if he would take it Smile

Doyle Brunson's level of concentration is amazing for a man of his age. He must have been an incredible player in his younger days and i bet he could play for about 96 hours straight. Great to see him still playing
