Day 2 at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic is in the books. A total of 503 players signed up for the tournament and 176 of them have advanced to Day 3. The overnight chip leader is no one else than Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi with 272,600 chips. He will be joined at the tables today by Champions Club member Chino Rheem (6th place with 209k), PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst (ranked 8 with 202k) and Noah Schwartz (13th place with 188,7k) - just to mention 3 big names with healthy stacks.
When play resumes today, blinds will be 600-1,200 with a 200 ante and there are five more levels of poker until a new WPT champion has been crowned. The top 54 places get paid so the money bubble should burst during Day 3.
