Day 2 is In the Bag; Rijkenberg Flying High

• Nivel 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Constant Rijkenberg
Constant Rijkenberg

They're pumping Coldplay through the speakers, and that's our cue to get out of here.

Day 2 is done and dusted here at the WSOPE Main Event, and our starting field has been dashed to bits. The remaining 328 (of the 539 starters) walked back into the tournament room today, but more than 200 of the walked right back out with a frown over the course of six testing levels. Including the start-of-day chip leader, Jamie Rosen. And the third-place stack of Tommy Vedes. It was Vedes' birthday today, but he was the one doing the giving, quickly passing his chips out to his table mates and heading off to (hopefully) celebrate.

With the bags out on the tables, it looks like Constant Rijkenberg has done the most work today, and his stack of 462,800 puts him atop the pack heading for the run to the money tomorrow.

Rijkenberg's finishing stack is still less than Rifat Palevic's high point on the day. Palevic was the first player to amass a big stack today, working his count up over the half-million mark at one point. The aggression that gave him the chips took a chunk of them away, however, and Palevic had to settle for a finishing count of 353,500 -- still quite healthy. Others who are still in the hunt for this title include Erik Seidel, Barry Greenstein, Robert Mizrachi, Victor Ramdin, Patrik Antonius, Tony G, and the defending champion, James Bord. And don't look now, but last year's 13th-place finisher, Hoyt Corkins, finds himself in second place overall with 429,900 at night's end.

Everyone's chasing Rijkenberg, though, and the Dutchman certainly knows what it takes to win a big tournament. Rijkenberg is the EPT San Remo champion from a couple years back, and his game seems to have grown even a bit more mature in the time since then. He'll bring almost a half-million chips back with him tomorrow.

Play is set to resume at noon tomorrow, and we'll play eight-handed from here on out.

Until then, all that's left is goodnight!

Dodds Doubles On Last Hand

• Nivel 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Joel Dodds (Day 1b)
Joel Dodds (Day 1b)

On the last hand at his table, Joel Dodds scored a big double up through Mustapha Kanit, but he had to come from behind to do so.

Dodds was all in preflop with the {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} versus {A-}{K-} for Kanit. The window card was the {Q-Spades} to give Dodds the lead, but it was followed by the {J-Spades} and {10-Hearts} to give Kanit a Broadway straight. The turn paired the board with the {10-Diamonds} and then the river put another ten out there with the {10-Clubs} and gave Dodds a straight.

Dodds was all in for 135,000 and doubled up big just before bagging up for the night.

Bucky Drags a Monster

There were about three dozen people encircling one of the far tables, and that's usually our cue that something big is going on. When we walked over, there was a board of {3-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {6-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} out on the table and a big pot piled in the center. Shawn Buchanan had bet 73,000, and Carlos Mortensen was deep in the tank. He only had about 100,000 chips left, so the call was for nearly all of it. After several minutes, he talked himself into the call.

Buchanan showed up {K-Spades} {K-Clubs} for top set, drawing a "Wow," from a couple players at the table. Mortensen was not one of them, however. He quietly mucked, left now with just barely what he began with two days ago.

Day Two Chip Leader? Keep An Eye On Table Eight!

Hoyt Corkins - leading the way
Hoyt Corkins - leading the way

We have been saying it all day, but the magical table eight seems to be where it is all happening. It will be surprising if the chip leader does not rise out of the mayhem that is table eight. With fifteen-minutes of the level remaining we watched a few hands so see who was favourite to come out of the pack.


Hand 1

Rifat Palevic raised to 5,100 in early position and Anthony Lellouche raised to 13,700 a few seats to his left. Action on Tom Bedell in the big blind whio started to think.

"zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz," snored Palevic at the top of his voice.

"Alright I call," said Bedell.

The flop was {K-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {2-Clubs} and the action checked to Lellouche who bet 16,400. Bedell folded but Palevic check-raised to 34,300 and Lellouche folded his hand after Palevic told him he had nothing but knew he had nothing either.

Hand 2

Ifergan raised to 4,200 under the gun and folded to a 10,250 Cody three-bet from the button.

Hand 3

Robert Mizrachi raised to 5,000 in early position and Hoyt Corkins called. The flop was {J-Spades} {10-Clubs} {4-Hearts} and Mizrachi bet 5,300 before folding to a 20,000 Corkins raise.

Hand 4

Cody raised to 4,500 from the hijack and three players called. The flop was {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {9-Spades} and Cody won the pot with a 12,500 c-bet and flashed the {A-Diamonds}.

Gimme Five!

• Nivel 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The clock has been paused with ten minutes to go in the day, and we'll play another five hands at each table before calling it a night.

Antonius Takes One from Sihvo

Patrik Antonius
Patrik Antonius

From the hijack seat, Lari Sihvo raised to 4,000. Patrik Antonius called from the big blind and the flop came down {J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Antonius checked and Sihvo bet 5,200. Antonius put in a check-raise to 13,000 and Sihvo made the call.

The turn card was the {K-Spades} and Antonius fired 22,000. Sihvo didn't take too long to make the call and see the {7-Spades} land on the river. Antonius took some time to himself. He eventually fired a bet worth 27,000. Sihvo called.

Antonius tabled the {K-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Sihvo slammed his hand on the table in disgust. "You're so lucky!" he said to Antonius. Sihvo then mucked his hand and Antonius scooped the pot.

Patrik Antonius 265,000 85,000
Lari Sihvo 58,000 -57,000
