WSOP-C Atlantic City Day 2

Share this

118 players settled in at Harrah’s Atlantic City for an 18-hour, Day 2, at the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event. Among those returning to the field were 2006 champion Richard Rosetti, 2007 spring New Orleans Circuit winner Louie Esposito, talk show host Montel Williams and Robert Williamson III.

Montel Williams went out in the middle of the pack on Day 2 when Michael Esposito’s pocket Jacks held up against Williams’ {A-Spades}{7-Spades} to send him packing. 2006 champ Richard Rosetti busted near the bubble, guaranteeing that there would be a new Circuit champion crowned in Atlantic City.

With so many players returning on Day 2, it was late in the evening when the money bubble finally burst. Heung ‘Scott’ Yoon ran his pocket nines into John Racener’s pocket Queens to finish in 28th place and burst the money bubble. It took only a couple of hours from that point to narrow the field down to two final tables, with Mike Sica heading to the rail in 19th after holding a chip lead for much of the afternoon. Sica pushed all in with A-3 and found one caller in Eric Buchman, who held K-10. Buchman picked up a ten on the flop to bust Sica.

After Sica’s elimination, the remaining players redrew for seats as the night moved into morning in Atlantic City -

7. Adrian Velez

Chad Furbay got all his chips in the middle with {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} against Robert Seman’s {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, and when the board ran out {6-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{J-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, Furbay was busted in 18th. Avdo Djokovic and Eugene Jandris quickly followed, finishing in 17th and 16th, respectively.

James Nelson took it upon himself to thin the field, busting James Lee and Robert Seman in the same hand. Lee was all in with {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}, and Nelson called with {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}. Seman joined the all-in fest with {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}, and the board came down {K-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades}. Nelson’s Kings were good for the whole pot, and Seman and Lee were busted in 15th and 14th place.

Jay Mensh got all his chips in on a coin flip holding {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} to Adrian Velez’s {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}. The coin came down for Velez with a King on the flop and then another on the river for good measure. Michael Russo busted next when his {Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} was no good against John Racener’s {A-Spades}{J-Spades} on a board of {8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{7-Spades}.

David Zhu was all in with a short stack and found callers in James Nelson and Joey Brooks. Brooks and Nelson checked it down and the board came down {3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{8-Spades}. True to form, Nelson took down the three-way pot when his {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} was better than Zhu’s {5-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Brooks’ {4-Hearts}{2-Spades}, as Nelson eliminated Zhu with 7-high.

After watching his chip stack yo-yo for much of the evening, Vincent Procopio called off his last few chips with {K-Clubs}{J-Spades} against Fleming Chan’s preflop raise with {A-Spades}{8-Clubs}. Chan picked up an eight on the turn to make two pair and send Procopio to the rail and set the final table.

Here are the unofficial chip counts as play ended on Day 2 -

Samuel Skolnik – 572,000
Feming Chan – 371,000
Eric Buchman – 340,000
