Let us have a look at the highlights of the 50th World series Poker (WSOP). It is our mission to keep you up to date with all the events in the renowned Poker Festival.
Unlike Day 1C, which was full of controversy, July 6th ran smoothly without glitches. Covering the second part of Day 2’s plays of the main event, July 6th was also the Day 1 of the $1,111 Little One for One Drop at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. As expected, the Day 1 of the $1,111 Little One for One Drop continued flawlessly at the mega poker tournament.
The Day 2AB of the Main Event in this year’s WSOP set a second highest record of entries at 8,225 from the 3,248 runners who registered for the grand poker tournament. The Day 2 entries are ranked second most populous in the history of the WSOP globally.
Luckily India was represented by a group of four players with their head Yudhihister Jaswal gaining 346,600 in chips which translates to 144 big blinds. The group had survived the earlier knock out which had tremendously reduced the participants to only 1,087.
Aside from the Main Event’s day 2AB, the Day 1A of the $1,111 Little One for One Drop had gained momentum attracting 702 entries. As the day closed, only 253 players lived to fight the next day. Of this lot was a trio of Indians, Nishamat Sharma (107,100-70 big blinds), Deepak Bothra (41,200-110 blinds) and Sanjay Sharma 175,400-110 blinds)
As Day 2A of the main event faded away, Timothy Su became the Day’s top player with 791,100-330 blinds. In the Day 1A of the $1111 Little One for One Drop, Leandry Ainonkop took the day with 726,600-454 big blinds.
As it stands, Yudhisher Jaswal will proceed on to Day 3 of the main event. He will team up with Siddharth Karia, Kunal Patni, and Ankit Ahuja as the representatives of India. Here is a sneak peek on the number of chips bagged by each at the end of Day 2.
