Can Vanessa Selbst win her second career bracelet?
Can Vanessa Selbst win her second career bracelet?

Day 2 of Event 52: $2,500 10-Game Mix Six-Handed began with 167 of the original 421 entrants, and after ten hours of play, 19 remain. Our chip leader, Vanessa Selbst, rocketed to the top of the charts after dinner break, and is our end-of-day chip leader with 346,900 chips. Joining her at the top of the counts are Michael Saltzburg (286,700), Matthew Ashton (285,600), and Julien Renard (283,000).

Selbst will be looking to capture her second career WSOP bracelet tomorrow – her first came in a $1,500 PLO event in 2008 – and Vincent van der Fluit is looking to take down his second WSOP event this year – he won Event 11: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha. Chris Bjorin, Bryn Kenney, Lee Goldman, Can Kim Hua, James Mackey, and Thomas Chambers have all made final tables here at the 2012 WSOP, with Bjorin finishing runner-up in Event 4: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better.

Plenty of notables bowed out before the money bubble burst, including Eli Elezra, Daniel Idema, Hasan Habib, Jason Potter, Joe Tehan, Joe Kuether, Greg Mueller, Paul Volpe, George Danzer, Yuval Bronshtein, Alex Dovzhenko, Michael Binger, Owais Ahmed, and our bubble boy; John D’Agostino. D’Agostino was eliminated in a hand of No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw, where he and Mike Gorodinksy both drew one card. Gorodinsky’s {j-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{2-} bested D’Agostino’s {j-}{10-}{6-}{5-}{2-}, eliminating him one spot shy of the money.

Among the 29 players who cashed but didn’t make it to Day 3 are Mike Matusow, Marco Traniello, Richard Ashby, Chris Wallace, Jeff Madsen, Dan O’Brien, Peter Ippolito, and Eric Wasserson.

Play will resume at 3 p.m. tomorrow, where the plan is to play until there’s a winner. We look forward to seeing you then, but for now, good night from Las Vegas!

Chang Calls Clements

Happy_Freaked

2-7 No-Limit Single Draw

Allen Chang raised under the gun to 5,400 and Matthew Ashton called directly to his left. Scott Clements was in the small blind and he called as well.

Clements took one, Chang took one and Ashton took two cards.

Clements lead out for 14,000 and Chang called pretty quickly. Ashton tanke for a good minute before releasing his hand.

Clements turned over {K-}{9-}{6-}{4-}{2-}, but that was no good against Chang's {9-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{2-}. Chang took a nice profit but is still trailing Ashton by a big margin, he's managed to chip up big and is one of the chip leaders.

Nassif Makes Nut-Flush

[user101598]

Limit Hold'em

When we reached Table 409, the board read {4-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. Brian Saltus bet, Gabriel Nassif raised, and Saltus made it three bets. Nassif made it four bets, and Saltus called.

The {3-Spades} completed the board, and Saltus checked. Nassif slid out a bet, and Saltus made a crying call. Nassif tabled {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} for the nut-flush, and Saltus unhappily mucked his hand.

Mackey Busts Wong

Happy_Freaked

Limit-Hold'em

Fu Wong raised and the action was folded to James Mackey who three-bet from the big blind. Wong called.

On the {3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{J-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} board Wong ended up calling Mackey down, and on the river he was all in. Mackey turned over {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} and busted Wong who flashed his {A-}{K-}.

Right when this was going down we also lost Chris Wallace. The field is now down to 19 players.
