Chris Priday leads the field in the annual Ladies Event at the 2013 World Series of Poker, finishing the day with 96,200 in chips. A total of 954 players took their seats at the beginning of the day. After 10 levels of play, only 122 remain.

Several famous players and recognizable names were in the field today. Most of them didn’t survive the day, including Vicky Coren, Vanessa Selbst, Vanessa Rousso, Cherish Andrews, Jennifer Tilly, Jennifer Shahade, Kara Scott, Susie Isaacs, and Cyndy Violette. A few fared better, however, and Liv Boeree, Jackie Glazier, and Danielle “dmoongirl” Andersen will all return tomorrow.

This year, the WSOP changed its policy for the Ladies Event. Officially, the event has a buy-in of $10,000 and is open to anybody, both men and women. However, female entrants receive a 90% discount. The change was brought about by male players who in past years have taken advantage of legal loopholes to disrupt the spirit of the Ladies Event. It appears the change was successful, as we were informed that nobody paid the full $10,000.

Following Priday on the leader board are Sari F. Utchen (80,500 in chips), Lauren Billings, (74,600), Vanessa Kade (71,300) and Kristen Bicknell (69,400). Exactly 117 players will make the money, so five players who return tomorrow will leave empty-handed. The rest are guaranteed a payout of at least $1,631, but every player is eyeing the $173,922 and the WSOP gold bracelet that comes with it.

Play resumes Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. Join us here at PokerNews as we bring you live updates from Day 2 of the 2013 WSOP Ladies Event.

The Card Has Been Drawn

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

The ladies have just three more hands before play concludes for the day. Before the ladies bag and tag for the evening, they will be racing off the green chips. According to the tournament clock, we are approximately 7 away from the money.

Priday Busts Scott

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Just a few minutes after doubling up, we came to the table and Kara Scott was gone. We asked what happened and her {a-}{k-} ran into the aces of Chris Priday. Kara confirmed her bust out via twitter just a few moments later.

Big Pot for Bicknell

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

On the turn, with the board reading {3-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{6-Spades}, Kristen Bicknell checked and Debby Perkins pushed forward a bet of 10,000. Bicknell responded with an all-in check-raise. Perkins thought for a minute, then reluctantly folded her cards. After the dealer pushed the pot to Bicknell, Perkins said she folded pocket kings.

After the hand, Bicknell's stack was up to 64,500.

Scott Doubles

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

We came to the table as Kara Scott was counting her stack and saw her {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} win against her opponent's {q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. The double couldn't have come at a better time as Scott has been on the short stack for quite awhile after a couple of hands went bad earlier in the evening.

Dmoongirl Wins with Check-Raise

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

We arrived at the table on the flop with the board reading {9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. The small blind checked, and Danielle "dmoongirl" Andersen checked from the big blind position. The only other player in the hand bet out 2,900. The small blind folded. Andersen thought for a few moments and put out a check-raise to 8,000. The bettor folded, and Andersen took the pot.
