2019 WSOP: $10,000 Main Event Day 2ab Chops Down Players to 1,087

Tags: 2019 WSOP, Anton Morgenstern, Florian Duta, Galen Hall, Timothy Su, Tony Blanchandin.
Posted on 08 July 2019 by "T".

On Saturday, July 6, Day 2ab of the 2019 WSOP $10,000 Main Event kicked off at 11am local time. Day 2ab is composed of all the survivors of Days 1a and 1b in a combined field.

2019 WSOP: Event #73: $10,000 NLHE MAIN EVENT

  • Schedule: July 3 to July 16, 2019
  • Venue: Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
  • Buy-in: $10,000

Day 2ab saw Timothy Su as the chip leader with 791,900 chips in his bag, followed by Tony Blanchandin (744,500), Anton Morgenstern (735,000), Florian Duta (731,500), and Galen Hall (705,900).

Other notable players who survived Day 2ab include Adam Owen (511,800), Gordon Vayo (451,800), Kelly Minkin (444,500), Shaun Deeb (428,200), Allen Kessler (407,200), Igor Kurganov (330,000) and Todd Brunson (284,200).

One notable highlight of this flight was that a former Main Event champ managed to put as many chips as he can in his bag and he was on a roll from start to finish, even beginning the day with a small speech on the mic before the first card was dealt. Qui Nguyen, who won a whopping $8 million at the 2016 WSOP Main Event after a lengthy battle in the history of WSOP Main Event heads-up plays (imagine going through 182 hands over 8 hours of head-up play), got to the stage early to announce the shuffle and deal.

Nguyen already had a solid stack of 180,500 upon start of the day and he managed to double that in the first level of play. Soon he reached the 400,000 mark and just continued to add more until his stack reached to 602,400 by midnight.

He said he had to stray from his original style, developed from his fearless game play that made him the top winner in 2016, "I played my normal game at first, people know that I am aggressive and that's how I was able to chip up. I did have to change my style, though. I know it's still a long way to go. So, I just want to make the money first."

Even the Brightest Poker Stars get Knocked Out Too
In the poker world, even the biggest and most winningest poker pros can get knocked down too. Some of the brightest stars in poker who went bust during the course of Day 2ab gameplay include the likes of Chris Ferguson, Daniel Negreanu, Justin Bonomo, Phil Galfond, Ryan Riess, and Stephen Chidwick.

Below is the list of End-of-Day Chip Counts, showing the top 20 spots for Day 2ab:


The initial field count for Day 2ab reached to 3,248 plus around 100 start-of-day entries. At the end of the day, only 1,087 players shall be advancing to the next stage, which is Day 3.

As Day 2ab is now in the books, Day 2c is next, which is scheduled to start on July 7, Sunday at 11am local time.

Those who will make it through the Day 2ab and Day 2c flights shall then return for Day 3 on July 8, Monday at noon local time.

lot of famous names are out and it will be interesting to see who will pass in final stage of main event!after all days with registration finish,maybe we will have record with number of players on main event and record with prize pool!good luck to all players!

In each tournament it happens as famous players to be eliminated. This is not something abnormal and every professional player or less professional try to win more money and bracelets. This is not a surprise and it will always be in the same way. He can not win only famous players every time.

there were more than 8,000 players .... about 1,000 players left around .... very quickly the remaining 7,000 players were eliminated .... apparently many risked at the beginning of the tournament to get a big stack .... someone succeeded in this risk and he continues the game .... the others are waiting for the next tournament .... quite an interesting development

They famous cause of their achievement, lol. Their achievement show their capability, none about famous or not, capability is the point. But they eliminated maybe cause their opponent have more luck Smile Smile : Not exactly lost cause the opp have better skill.

Negreanu does not seem happy on that picture, the thing I envy him for are his prescription glasses.
That slick blue frame would look good on almost anybody, I just wonder how much could that cost...
Probably some weird luxury brand, who knows.
 CALICUL09/07/2019 13:16:17 GMT
I did not refer to this. I said that these tournaments can not be won only by famous players. Anyway this is not important. Daniel Negreanu is not happy because his results are no longer so good. I suppose like most players, they have no smile on the face, when they does not earn money. It's something normal.
 Serpang09/07/2019 13:42:51 GMT
Negreanu doesn't look happy cause he never got good chance to built his stack from start, and eliminated so early, looks like doesn't describe his level. But he shove with 30BB with JJ is good decision ? while chip leader day 3 down to 5000 chips ( how many BB ? ) before he spun it up

Apparently at that moment he felt something .... he felt that he could really increase his stack .... and in the end this did not happen ... So his famous instinct let him down .... which led to a regular dropout from this tournament .... Negreanu is of course a great player but his decision is not always logical
 CALICUL10/07/2019 12:52:15 GMT
Often Daniel Negreanu's decisions are instinctive. I think it's better for him to play by the rules. His instinct is not that good at this moment. In the last period he is not successful but he remains one of the best players in the world. If he plays according to the holdem poker rules will have better results.

Kidd23 you must to win something you have to try. You can not get anything for free if you do not create an account and then opt for non-deposit or deposit bonuses. The same in satellite tournaments. Play and try to qualify to major tournaments with little money. Good Luck. Smile
