[user68268] • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Faraz Jaka from last week at the 2012 WSOP Europe

The €2,000 No-Limit Hold'em side event continued with Day 2 yesterday, and the fiekd has been whittled down to just 38 players. All are in the money, and it's Faraz Jaka leading the way with 628,000 in chips.

The top 48 spots were paid out from the 450-player field, and everyone left is guaranteed a minimum of €5,200. Notables that cashed on Day 2, but busted are Timothy Adams (44th — €4,370), Vicent van der Fluit (42nd — €4,370), Andrey Gulyy (41st — €4,370) and Calvin Anderson (40th — €5,200).

Other notables big stacks include Jonathan Little (485,000), Melanie Weisner (478,000) and Ronny Kaiser (460,000).

The event will return to action at 3:00 PM local time today for Day 3 in hopes of grinding down to a winner. There's €210,000 up top for the champion, so it should be a great finish to the event.
