Event #18: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em
Day 2 completed

That's a Wrap; Happy Days for Foster Hays!

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Well, it's been a long, hard day, but Day 2 of Event 18 here at the World Series of Poker is in the books!

After the commencement of play was pushed back by 45 minutes due to the overflow from the $1,000 No Limit Hold'em event that started today, the 469 returning players didn't mess about, with the bubble being burst within the first level of play. Among those that are moving on to Day 3 are Tristian Wade, Alan Le, Matthew Wood and Tony Cousineau.

After all the carnage, Foster Hays has emerged our chip leader, bagging up 1,250,000, followed by Jordan Young who holds 1,080,000. Stan Tavanese (814,000), Bryan Barille (634,000) and Jeffrey Lavelle (573,000) round off the top five.

Amongst those that were eliminated in the money were Christian Harder, Chris Moorman, Jeffrey Papola, Pascal LeFrancois, Daniel Kelly, Richard Toth, Jon Turner, Humberto Brenes and Prahlad Friedman, as well as newlyweds Erick Lindgren and Erica Schoenberg.

With the chip lead having changed hands so many times, we can only expect that the lightning-fast action will continue from tomorrow at 2.30pm PST (GMT -7) in the Amazon Room when we return for Day 3. And if you want to keep up with this, plus all of the WSOP action, be sure to keep following us right here on PokerNews. Until then, it's ciao for now!

Welcome to Chopsville, Population Two

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Tristan Wade min-raised to 20,000 from under the gun, only to see Shoaib Makani reraise to 80,000 from middle position. After the others got out of the way, Wade put the rest of his chips into the middle. Makani called, tabling {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} against Wade's {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}.

"Give me some clubs!" he said to the dealer. She could only provide one on the board of {7-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{6-Spades}, and thus the players went all King Solomon on those chips.

Quad Kings Should Do It

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Mathieu Poutine opened for 20,000 and Waseem Tarawneh called from the small blind. The flop hit {K-Clubs} {K-Spades} {7-Clubs}, Tarawneh checked, Poutine shoved and Tarawneh called. The hands were tabled and Poutine held {Q-Spades} {Q-Clubs} but Tarawneh was ahead holding {K-Diamonds} {10-Clubs}.

The board completed {K-Hearts} {3-Clubs} giving Tarawneh quad kings and a much needed double up.
