Day 2 of Event #17: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. has concluded with another ten levels of play in the books. It was a day that saw the returning field of 185 get cut all the way down to just 17. Leading them all into Day 3 is Adam Friedman with 453,000 in chips. Friedman's best World Series of Poker finish came in 2005 when he placed 43rd in the Main Event for $235,390. A bracelet here will surely top that.
Also remaining are the 2009 $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. champion David Bach, bracelet winner Michael Chow Team PokerStars Pro Victor Ramdin, David Baker and Jonathan Tamayo, which means this field still has plenty of firepower. With first place set at $289,283, they'll all be gunning for it.
The players will return tomorrow at 2:30 PM PT to continue with action. Hopefully we'll have the chance to see another champion crowned and bracelet awarded, but if this thing lasts another ten levels, we may be seeing a Day 4. You'll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow and you can find all of the coverage live on PokerNews.
