Jon "PearlJammer" Turner Tops Day 2 Field!

• Nivel 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante
Chip Leader Jon Turner
Chip Leader Jon Turner

After another full day slogging it on the felt, Day 2 of Event #4: $1,000 No Limit Hold'em has come to an end with players so close to the eighth gold bracelet of the 2011 World Series of Poker.

623 players began the day spread over three sections of the Amazon Room, and once play kicked off, the action was fast and furious as bustouts occurred at a phenomenal rate with the bubble bursting just after the commencement of the third full level of the day. Unfortunately for Nick Gibson, all the stalling and time-wasting wouldn't help him as he became the bubble boy putting 423 players into the money.

Like most small buy-in tournaments at the World Series, once in the money, play always speeds up as players look to jostle for position high up on the leaderboard or to end the day early with a min-cash. Valdemar Kwaysser (420th), Jason Koon (412th), Dan Heimiller (392nd), Kyle Bowker (389th), Sam Barnhart (385th), Michael Pesek (294th), Bryn Kenney (280th), Marc Karam (270th), Allie Prescott (221st), Gavin Griffin (215th), Kathy Liebert (204th), Alexander Kravchenko (177th), Ylon Schwartz (174th), Layne Flack (95th) and Darryll Fish (93rd) were just a handful of the highly talented players that exited with some extra moolah in their back pockets.

With the board saying 60 players remaining, it is Jon "PearlJammer" Turner leading the field with an amassed 749,000 in chips. Snapping at his heels include Kyle Speake (573,000) and Hunter Frey (535,000) alongside notable players Young Phan (268,000), Jonathan Duhamel (250,000), Albert Kim (246,000), John Eames (233,000) and Jordan Young (221,000) as well as females Valerie Cross (297,000) and Ana Marquez (197,000).

The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be back again in just under twelve hours to provided extensive live coverage, as we look to play down to a final table of nine in the Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em. So make sure to stay tuned to PokerNews.com from 2:30 pm PDT as we write the story of the next coveted gold bracelet winner.

Young Slips, Then Doubles

• Nivel 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Jordan Young's stack can't seem to find steady ground as of late.

In a recent hand, Young raised from middle position and was shoved all-in on for about 108,000 from a player to his left. Young made the call but needed help, as his {A-Spades}{9-Diamonds} was dominated by his opponent's {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

The board ran out {4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, forcing Young to double his opponent up and slipping to just 103,000.

The next hand, a player limped from under-the-gun and Young went all-in from middle position. The limper called and had Young in bad shape.

Young: {10-Spades}{K-Spades}
Opponent: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}

The flop came the {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, pairing Young and giving him a few more outs to improve.

The turn fell the {10-Hearts}, giving Young trips and propelling him into the lead.

The river blanked a {2-Diamonds} and Young doubled up to 220,000.

Rood Ran Down By Ace-High

• Nivel 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

We arrived in time to see David Rood, formerly one of our chip leaders, shipping the rest of his stack to an opponent holding {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}.

The board read {4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{J-Spades}{9-Hearts} and Rood's hand could not beat ace-high, eliminating him from this tournament as Day 2 crawls towards its conclusion.

Albert Kim's AA Downed by Set of Queens After Massive Cooler

• Nivel 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

In one of the most exciting hands played at our feature table, we witnessed three players put it all on the line with the three best starting hands in hold'em.

Showdown:
Albert Kim: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}
Ricky Fohrenbach: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}
Christopher Goggin: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}

Goggin had the shortest stack in this duel, with about 146,000, meaning Kim and Fohrenbach were competing for a side pot in addition to the main.

All three players stood up as the dealer decided their fates.

Flop: {9-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{7-Spades}

With that, Kim loudly told the rail "of course its another queen, it's SO SICK!" and began pacing around the table with anger spread across his face. When the turn brought the {J-Hearts}, a more composed Fohrenbach quietly asked the dealer for a ten, which would complete his gutshot straight draw and give him the overwhelming chip lead.

The dealer had already exhausted his supply of miracle cards, however, and the {4-Spades} changed nothing. Kim began angrily tossing his belongings towards his backpack while repeating the familiar refrain of "so sick!"

Goggin now has 450,000 chips while Kim has fallen to just under 290,000. Fohrenbach has slipped to 190,000 after finishing last in this three-way showdown and the feature table has just livened up considerably.

Turner's Hero Call Propels Him to Chip Lead

• Nivel 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

We caught up with the action on the {2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop, where Jon "PearlJammer" Turner check-called a bet from his opponent.

The turn came the {Q-Hearts} and again Turner check-called, this time a 20,500 bet from his opponent.

The {K-Hearts} completed the board and Turner's opponent fired out 60,500, sending Turner into the tank. Turner counted out a call and convinced himself to chuck it into the middle.

"You're good," his opponent said, tabling {A-}{8-} for just ace-high. Turner flipped over {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}, which was good enough to drag the sizable pot and earn him the chip lead - 613,000.
