Limit Hold'em grinders making it to Day 2 of Event #52: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship at the World Series of Poker played through five double-length levels of poker on Tuesday, and just 14 remain in contention for the bracelet.
Tops among those in terms of chip count is Dan Zack. The mixed-game star has racked up just shy of $440,000 in cashes at the WSOP since he began making his mark in 2014 but has yet to capture his first bracelet. It seems only a matter of time until he gets and he has a golden opportunity here after bagging 1,217,000, a mile clear of all of his opposition.
Zack had an above average chip count for most of the day but was hovering around 500,000 when the final level began. He went off to end things, running it up in the last 30 minutes in particular. At that point, he hit a set of eights in a multi-way pot to bust Gregory De Bora and then cracked Ken Deng's kings with ace-queen in a three-bet pot for another pile.
No player is within shouting distance of Zack's lofty count. Rounding out the top five are Matt Szymaszek (561,000), Nick Schulman (499,000), Anthony Zinno (493,000) and Christopher Chung (487,000). Bracelet winners Scott Seiver (467,000), Michael Moore (368,000), Benny Glaser (215,000) and Brock Parker (167,000) also remain.
Everyone left is in the money, and the bubble burst in eventful fashion. Ray Henson was the shortest stack remaining in the tournament and after four players made it to the flop for a single raise, he put the four-bet in with a set of tens and got the rest in on the turn. Unfortunately for him, two players had made straight and Deng wound up dragging the monster pot with the nuts when the board didn't pair on the river.
Joao Vieira, who had the lower straight in that pot, De Bora, Ofir Mor and John Hennigan were the players busting in the money.
While Zack may be the favorite going into the final day, there's still plenty of limit action left. Everyone has their eyes on the $296,222 first-place prize with $17,000 locked up. Come back to PokerNews for live updates of the final day.
