He earned $13,935 in prize money and gained 50 WPT season XII POY points to take his total to 1,900 points (4th place POY standings).
Only 19 of 258 players remain after two days of play at the World Poker Tour Jacksonville bestbet Open Main Event. Jared Jaffee, who won the most recent WPT event at bestbet Jacksonville, is the chip leader heading to Day 3 (begins in approximately 5 hours) with 776,000 in chips!
