Brock Parker On Day 2

After defeating either a seven or eight handed table on Day 1 and a five handed table on Day 2, ten people remain in contention for the $116,118 first place prize as well as the gold World Series of Poker bracelet.

Since each remaining player has bested two tables of limit hold'em action, the remaining ten are guaranteed at least $7,164.

Leading the way today is Victor Ramdin who is looking for his first WSOP bracelet. Ramdin conquered a stacked table yesterday that included the likes of JJ Liu and Greg Mueller. Ramdin was then able to come out on top in a grueling heads up match against Justin Bonomo to secure his seat today.

Also in the hunt today is Brock Parker, who has officially secured his third cash of the series. Parker has a 4th place finish under his belt this year, making it to the semi-finals of Event 12: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em.

Play will begin today with limits at 3,000/6,000 and we will play down to a winner. Stay tuned here on PokerNews as we provide you with all of the latest updates as these ten players attempt to become a WSOP champion.
