This afternoon marked the beginning of Day 2 of the World Series of Poker Main Event at Bally’s Casino where a total of 246 total players battled it out for one of the top 135 in-the-money spots. Those players made it to Day 2 by bagging in either Flight 1A on Friday or Flight 1B on Saturday.

There will be a total of 23 players returning to play Day 3 tomorrow at noon.  Jeffrey Kim is leading the way with 1,735,000.  Just behind him is Jamie Rosen with 1,705,000. And rounding out the top three is Brandon Wittmeyer with 1,605,000.  Full chip counts are located in the Reports Tab above.  

Dietrich Fast eliminated a player in 137th place to get the field to hand-for-hand play which only lasted three hands.  The money bubble burst in level 18 when Sam DeSilva eliminated a player, leaving all remaining players officially in the money. 

A few of the more notable players that finished shy of the money today included JJ Liu, Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler, Brandon Meyers, Kathy Liebert, Heather Alcorn, WSOP Circuit Ring winners Justin Young and Cory Waaland, and WSOP Colossus winner Cord Garcia. 

Javier Zarco came into Day 2 first in chips with 428,000. Coming in second and third respectfully were Michael Collins (295,500) and Olivier Busquet (279,500). None of these players made it through to Day 3. Collins did not cash, Zarco took 101st place ($3,205), and Busquet took 67th ($4,480).
