It's the End of the Day as We Know It

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Josh Brikis will return on Day 3 as one of the short stacks.
Josh Brikis will return on Day 3 as one of the short stacks.

Day 2 of Event #32 is officially over and what a day it was! From the 362 players that started the day only 35 remain. Our chipleader is Dror Michaelo who had 876,000 at the end of the day. Although he flew under the radar for a good portion of the day his aggressive play helped him gain a lot of chips during the last few levels and will leave him in a good position coming into Day 3.

Notable names left in the field include Kyle Cartwright, Jakob Tostesen, Adam Geyer, Josh Brikis, and Adam Lippert, who was our chipleader at the beginning of the day.

Although we started the day with a number of notable players, a good majority of them hit the rail throughout the course of the day. Those that were eliminated include TJ Cloutier, Layne Flack, Eddie Blumenthal, Chino Rheem, Carter Gill, Amit Makhija, Brett Jungblut, Justin Young, Jared Ingles, Benoit Albiges, and Maxim Sorokin.

We still have one woman remaining in the field. Jamie Kerstetter has a chance to become the first woman this year to win a WSOP bracelet. She will start Day 3 with 147,000.

All the players left are guaranteed to take home a cool $15,000, but we're sure they all have their eyes set on the $668,276 and gold bracelet that will go to our eventual champion.

Action will resume tomorrow at 2:30pm in the Amazon room. Make sure to stay with PokerNews for all your WSOP updates!

Latimer Whited Out

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Four More Hands

[user153638] • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

The tournament officials have just announced that the remaining tables will play four more hands each before calling it a night.

Brikis Takes a Hit

[user153638]

A short-stacked player limped from middle position only to have Josh Brikis move all in from the hijack. After the blinds both got out of the way, the short-stacked player shrugged and committed his 1250,000.

Brikis: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Opponent: {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

It was a flip for a pot worth 250,000. The {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop kept Brikis in the lead, but the {J-Spades} turn was disaster. Brikis shook his head as if to say, "It never fails." The {Q-Spades} turn changed nothing and Brikis' stack was essentially cut in half.

Josh Brikis 122,000 -171,000

After a player raised to 25,000 from middle position, Kyle Cartwright moved all in from the cutoff for 222,000 total. The middle-position player thought long and hard before releasing his hand. Cartwright chipped up to 250,000, which is still below the chip average of 326K.

Morin Gets More Chips With Aces

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

A short stack moved all-in in early postion, and action folded to Gabriel Morin, who made the call. Everyone else folded, and the players flipped up their cards.

Morin: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Opponent: {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

The board ran out {5-Clubs}{j-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades}, and Morin won the pot to bump his stack up to 480,000.

Latimer Fades The Deck To Double Up

Adam Latimer

Michael Aron raised to 24,000, and Adam Latimer shoved for 95,000 in the small blind. Aron thought for just a few seconds before making the call.

Latimer: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Aron: {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

The flop came {3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, giving Aron some outs to chop the pot. The turn brought the {4-Diamonds}, and Aron could knock Latimer out with a seven, six, or diamond, and could chop with a three, four, or two. Despite all those outs, Latimer survived when the {8-Spades} hit the river, and secured the double up.

Michaelo Score Double Elimination

[user153638]

A short-stacked player moved all in from middle position for 74,000 and was called by Dror Michaelo in the small blind and the player in the big blind. Both active players proceeded to check the {Q-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop, which was followed bu the {Q-Diamonds} on the turn.

"I'm all in," Michaelo said.

"I have to call," responded the big blind as he pushed forward his last 100,000.

Michaelo: {A-Spades}{3-Spades}
Big Blind: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Middle Position: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}

Michaelo had flopped a set and had a virtual lock on the hand. To rub salt in the wound, the dealer put out the {3-Clubs} on the river to give Michaelo quads. A pair of three for each of his eliminations.

Dror Michaelo 760,000 160,000
