Second Break For Record-Setting Day 1C Field
 

Level 2 concludes, and the players are dismissed for their second 20-minute break.

2015 World Series of Poker

The field grew fast over the last two hours, and more than 3,800 players have already taken their seats for this session. In fact, the Day 1C field constitutes the largest-ever Main Event starting flight, surpassing last year’s Day 1C total of 3,768. Combined with the previous flights, well over 6,200 total players have already entered this 2015 Main Event, and registration remains open until the start of Level 4, at about 8:15 PM.

Je Wook Oh appears to be setting the early pace with just shy of 100,000 chips. Oh was responsible for the elimination of Beth Shak, flopping trips and turning a full house to earn the knockout. Double bracelet winner Keith Lehr has a big stack too, most of those chips coming in one big confrontation with award-winning actor Aaron Paul. Paul found middle set on a suited flop, but it was second-best to Lehr’s flopped flush.

2015 World Series Of Poker

Daniel Idema (pictured above) won his third gold bracelet earlier this summer, but number four will have to wait for now. Idema ran his pocket jacks into Allen Kessler's pocket aces, ending his day early. Dylan Linde, on the contrary, got his money in good with an overpair of aces against Sal DiCarlo's flopped pair of eights. Linde was correct when he called off his stack on the turn, but the river was a cruel third eight, sending him to the exit, as well.

David Williams, John Duthie, David Chiu, and 2012 Main Event Champion Greg Merson all have some rebuilding to do after dropping down under 10,000 chips during the last level.

Level 3 begins in 20 minutes, and players will head off for a 90-minute dinner break at its conclusion.
