Good morning everyone. We are back at the Rio to bring you the action from Day 2b of Event #58: $10,000 Main event. Its a very exciting day here at the Rio, as once the days is complete, everyone remaining will have a day off. When they return on Thursday, all of the survivors will be in the same room for the first time in the whole event!
Today we have an astonishing 2490 players coming back from day 1b and 1d. Despite the overwhelming number of players, its safe to say that most everyone will have one eye on one player: Ben Lamb. Lamb has had a decent World Series so far, scoring a 2nd in the $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha, a 1st in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha, a 12th in the $10,000 6-handed Championship, and an 8th in the $50,000 Players Championship. Lamb has continued his incredible play, and somehow comes into today as the biggest stack of the day.
There are still plenty of other players to keep an eye on. We also have Patrik Antonius, Jake Cody, Daniel Alaei, Sam Trickett, last year's runner up John Racener, and a slew of former main event champs, including Jamie Gold, Robert Varkonyi, Huck Seed, Joe Hachem, and Berry Johnston.
The cards will be in the air in 30 minutes, and we will be playing five two-hour levels. After that, the players who are left will bag and tag their chips, and enjoy a much deserved day off. Be sure to stay tuned to Pokernews, as we will bring you up to the minute action all day!
