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.
