Day 2 Over; Altbregin Leads

Sergey Altbregin and Nathan Wiesner
Sergey Altbregin and Nathan Wiesner

It has been a long, hard day for everyone in Event #46.

We have - this is becoming a theme at the WSOP this year - failed to make our final table, but 130 down to 21 in a split pot game isn't bad, and now that we're in the money we have high hopes that we'll be down to a final table in no time.

Sergey Altbregin remains our chip leader going into Day 3, although he dropped a little from his high point in the last few hands and is now on a still impressive 486,000. Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott is in second place on 415,000, and Perry Green - who holds three bracelets and finished second to Stu Ungar in the Main Event back in 1981 - is third in chips on 367,000.

Also still in the running are Erik Seidel, Rob Hollink, Allen Kessler, Andy Black and Dan Heimiller. However this turns out, it's going to be good.

We'll be back tomorrow at 3pm when we will start on the long road down to a bracelet winner. Join us then.

Lee Grove Eliminated in 22nd Place ($11,479)

[user75032]

On one of the final hands of the night, Lee Grove was all in pre-flop and called by big stack David "Devilfish" Ulliott. Grove had slightly the better of it with {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} to Ulliott's {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. But it was Devilfish who connected with a {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}[jh flop, making two pair, jacks and tens. Neither the turn {6-Hearts} nor the {4-Spades} river were enough to save Grove. He is the last elimination of the night, finishing in 22nd place.

Team PokerStars Out of Stars

With the elimination of Barry Greenstein, there are now a total of zero Team PokerStars Pros in this tournament.

Johannes Steindl, George Lind and Alex Kravchenko were the other three Team Pros who made it to Day 2, but PLO8 is a game of enormous variance and only Greenstein managed to make it as far as the money.

We are, however, absolutely certain we'll be seeing more of Team PokerStars before this WSOP is out.

Barry Greenstein Eliminated in 24th Place ($11,479)

Barry Greenstein - 24th place
Barry Greenstein - 24th place

Barry Greenstein, reduced to just 28,000, shoved. Rob Hollink, holding rather more chips, called.

Hollink: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Greenstein: {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Board: {j-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

Rob Hollink got himself a nice new book to read for his trouble, although someone seemed to have written in it.

"Kings, double-suited, all red," explained Hollink.

"I guess I can't complain," said Greenstein.
