Ribeiro's Ascent Continues

Anthony Ribeiro

Anthony Ribeiro has enjoyed a red-hot start to the day, felting several opponents over a short period of time. Gabriel Wood shoved from middle position and Ribeiro made the call on the button. The blinds got out of the way and Wood was officially at risk.

Gabriel Wood:   
Anthony Ribeiro:   

Wood was dominated and would need significant help to survive. That help could not be found on the     flop, but he did pick up one extra out on the   turn, which while removing his jacks as a path to victory did give him a gutshot. That gutshot did not come in, however, on the   river, sending Wood to the payout desk while Ribeiro continues to stack his opponents.

Hulme Out-Flops Lotfi

Jim Lotfi moved all in for his last 300,000 and Andrew Hulme called.

Jim Lotfi:   
Andrew Hulme:   

Hulme needed help and got it as the flop brought    , giving him a pair of queens. The   turn gave Lotfi some hope with a straight draw, but he didn't get the help he needed as the river came   and Lotfi hit the rail.

Ronconi Gets a Double

Darryl Ronconi

Darryl Ronconi, who finished second in last year's WSOP Event #17: $1,500 Millionaire Maker for $500,125, is enjoying another deep run in a large field WSOP bracelet event. Action folded to Jongwook Lee on the button who opened. Darryl Ronconi in the small blind responded with a three-bet shove, which Lee, after some consideration, called to put Ronconi at risk.

"We're flipping?" asked Ronconi before the cards had been turned over.

Darryl Ronconi:   
Jongwook Lee:   

The players were not in fact flipping, with Ronconi holding a fairly comfortable lead over his opponent. That lead only strengthened after the     flop. No help came for Lee on the   turn or   river, handing Ronconi a crucial double up while Lee dipped below 1,000,000.

Eichhorn's Flopped Pair is Good

With about 240,000 in the middle, the flop read    . Daniel Eichhorn was in the big blind and checked to Anthony Ribeiro on the button, who dropped a bet of 45,000 across the line. Eichhorn called.

The   hit the turn and Eichhorn checked again before he was faced with a bet of 160,000. He took about 20 seconds and then made the call.

The   landed on the river, completing the board and both players checked. Eichhorn tabled    for a pair of nines (that also flopped a flush draw) and Ribeiro mucked his hand.

Ducks Don't Fly For Lacey

Patrick Lacey opened on the button and Robert Covert shoved with the larger stack out of the small blind. The big blind folded and Lacey wasted little time before calling off for his tournament life.

Patrick Lacey:   
Robert Covert:   

Lacey was at risk and would need to win what was essentially a coinflip to survive. He had one foot out of the door, however, after the     flop and the   turn left him drawing thin. The   river officially ended Lacey's tournament early on Day 2. Covert, meanwhile, has surged to over 1,500,000 to place him among the big stacks in the room.

Elsewhere, eliminations have been coming at a fast and furious rate, with more than 60 players gone in the first two levels.

O'Connell Flops a Straight, Still Busts

Colby O'Connell three-bet all in for 225,000 from the small blind and Josh Prager called in the cutoff.

Colby O'Connell:   
Josh Prager:   

The     flop gave O'Connell a wheel and Prager a flush draw, which he completed on the   turn. Left drawing dead, O'Connell was already standing up as the dealer turned over the inconsequential   on the river.

Roarke Spikes a Nine on the River

Alexander Zeligman raised to 40,000 in early position and Philip Roarke called off his 70,000 next to act.

Philip Roarke:   
Alexander Zeligman:   

Roarke was dominated and the     flop didn't look promising. The   hit the turn but Roarke stayed seated as the   fell on the river for him to survive and double through Zeligman.

Hinkle Takes Out Two

Mason "Uncle Ron" Hinkle calls himself the "ultimate poker railbird," but so far on Day 2 he's been the one to watch after busting two players on consecutive hands.

In the first hand, Hinkle raised to 90,000 from the button before Daniel Samson shoved for 300,000 in the small blind. Hinkle called.

Daniel Samson:   
Mason Hinkle:   

Samson hit a pair of jacks on the     flop but improved no further as the board ran out    and he hit the rail.

The next hand, bracelet winner Jim Collopy shoved for 600,000 and Hinkle again called, dominating Collopy's    with   .

Once again, Hinkle was left with the best hand as the board came      , propelling him over the 2,000,000 chip mark.

Lacey Building Up

Patrick Lacey came into the day as a short stack and had already moved all in several times during the first level of play without receiving any calls. Having built up a playable stack courtesy of stealing several rounds of blinds, Lacey opened to 60,000 from early position. He received a single caller in the form of Alexander Charron in the cutoff.

Both players checked through the     flop to the   turn. At this point Lacey led out for 60,000, eliciting a fold from Charron and sending another pot Lacey's way.

Barney Makes Sneaky Call Pre-Flop

Seungik Shin raised to 75,000 from the cutoff and Todd Barney called on the button. Both Joseph Walters and Luciano Angarolla came along from the blinds, and they went four ways to a     flop.

Angarolla shoved for around 200,000 from the big blind and Shin called. Barney then announced he was also all in for 400,000 as Walters got out of the way. Shin slumped back in his chair and thought about the decision for a moment before folding.

Angarolla showed    for a flush draw, while Barney had    for top pair. Angarolla didn't hit the    turn and river so he hit the rail, while Barney stacked up more than 1,000,000.

Felix Joins Payout Line

The cries of "payout" are reverberating around the Bally's Event Center so far on Day 2.

The latest to have his tournament come to an end was Alcibiades Felix. After an initial raise, Felix reraised all in from middle position for his last 380,000.

Action folded to Alan Gendelman in the small blind, who called as the original raiser got out of the way. Felix took out his phone and started filming the hand as he showed    but was dominated by Gendelman's   .

The       board was no help to Felix as he headed off to the payout desk.

McGowan Triples Up On First Hand

David McGowan has had a dream start to Day 2. Action folded to him in middle position and he shoved for 395,000. William Firebaugh called from one seat over, only to see Matthew Snook re-jam for a little over 400,000 out of the big blind. Firebaugh made the call with the bigger stack and it was officially a three-way all in.

David McGowan:   
Matthew Snook:   
William Firebaugh:   

The flop came     to keep McGowan ahead. Nothing changed on the   turn or   river to triple McGowan up while Snook scooped a small sidepot to ensure no player was eliminated.

MacKinnon's Kings Hold to Eliminate Solomon

DJ Mackinnon

DJ MacKinnon raised to 60,000 in early position and Khanh Truong called a couple of spots to his left before Chris Solomon jammed for about 415,000 in the big blind. MacKinnon took a moment to think about it and announced all in as well, forcing Truong's cards to quickly hit the muck.

Chris Solomon:   
DJ MacKinnon:   

Solomon ran into the pocket kings of MacKinnon and the flop came    .

"King!" called out Solomon.

However, the king did not come as the board completed with the   on the turn and the   on the river, sending Solomon to the payout desk.
