2021 World Series of Poker
$5,000 Main Event

News in Brief

• Nível 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

With just a few minutes until the first scheduled break here on Day 2 of the PokerStars Championship Bahamas, we took in a few hands that may have big implications later.

Lauren Monosson will take no further part in proceedings after her preflop move all-in with {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} was called by Harry Ratchford pocket nines, which survived through a board showing {6-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{8-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Ratford now has around 80,000 and looks keen to progress a lot further.

Gleb Tremzin is still involved, although the Russian was very short-stacked when he moved all-in. He had pocket aces, however, and through a board of {6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, they rivered a full house to double him up to 48,000.

Elsewhere, there have been good fortunes for two members of Team PokerStars Pro. Jason Mercier has 148,000 after a superb two levels, while Daniel Negreanu stacks up 83,000 himself, cruising above the average.
