WSOP Main Event Day 2B: Last of Split Field Finishes for Weekend

Share this

After Day 2A kicked off with a simple list of instructions and launch into action, Day 2B took a different path. It was the annual welcoming of Bruce Buffer, famed ring announcer and friend of Full Tilt Poker . The WSOP was kicked into gear by the booming voice of Buffer that made it feel as if players were getting in the ring for the match of their lives, and in a way, they were. And with the “shuffle up and deal” command, cards were dealt.

There were 2,734 players who started Saturday, July 11 with chips, which was officially Day 2B of the 2010 World Series of Poker $10,000 NLHE Championship Main Event; or so that was the number reported by an unofficial outlet, as the official reports did not report an actual number of starting players. What was known was that 2B consisted of Day 1B and 1D finishers and would consist of four levels before finishing play well before midnight.

Of course, as does happen, many players found themselves on the rail rather than making it through the day. Some of the early eliminations included Thuy Doan, Per Ummer, Perry Friedman, Shannon Elizabeth, Michael Martin, George Danzer, and Phil Ivey. And even more painfully, some made it through more than half the day before being thrown out of the Main Event, and that group included George Lind, John Duthie, Melissa Hayden, Ylon Schwartz, James Mackey, Bryan Micon, Tom Schneider, Jeff Shulman, Josh Arieh, and Doyle Brunson.

The night ultimately ended with a reported 1,358 players left in the field, though some reporters had the number at 1,360. The official WSOP site showed 1,359 remaining and listed the top players remaining from Day 2B as:

David Assouline 
387,800
Ricardo Fasanaro
380,000
Matt Reed
337,800
Jim Collopy
305,100
Jon Van Fleet 
295,600
Charles Sylvestre   
292,300
Sasha Rosewood 
279,500
Vanessa Selbst
265,000
Marc Sander 
265,000
Gabriel Walls
241,000

All in all, it seemed that 2,560 players from both Day 2 fields would be moving on to Day 3, but not before a day off. Sunday was a day to rest and enjoy Las Vegas, and all of the remaining players in the Main Event would then converge upon the Rio for Day 3 as one large group of players on Monday, July 12.
