Day 2 of the World Poker Tour Bay 101 Shooting Star (played in San Jose, California) concluded with 36 players. The current chip leader is Steve Sung (US poker pro) who bagged up 1,812,000 in chips at the end of Day 2. Sung is about 600k clear of his closetst challenger (Bryce Yockey).

Unfortunately no Shooting Stars will return for Day 3 (begins in 5 hours) and Jeff Madsen was the last one standing before being eliminated in 45th place for $20,890 in prize money. However, there are few familiar faces left in the competition including Champions Club members Nam Le, Eric Hershler, Ben Hamnett and Jonathan Little.

The remaining 36 players of 718 entries are guaranteed to take home at least $24,870. The 6 players who make it to the final table will be guaranteed at least $174k each, with the chance of winning the top prize of $1,256,550! We will be back with another brief update tomorrow morning.

haha those pro poker player used to much attire to help them not getting spotted with their live tells or just sometimes to intimidate other players, like an untold say that you are a boss here and that you have to play carefully against him. Anyway love sunglasses and hodies. Though i prefer people with no sunglasses, more human but that is me!

I bet the players left in are all getting nervous because of the vast amounts of money to play for. Do you just sit back and wait to go up a few places? Or do you go for it and try to win it all?

I wouldn't bet that much on that doubletop777, as these guys are probably not facing amounts like this for the first time. Although they haven't known names for the rest of the poker world, i guess most of them may be used to play for big amounts, taking in consideration the buy in they had to pay to enter.

Fakiry nailed it - there are a shed ton of poker pros nobody hears about until they FT a big event or win it, often multi-million winning guys that have simply stayed under the radar.
