A total of 157 runners came back for Day 2 of Event #76: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. at the Rio All-Suites and Casino. When the last chance saloon had closed for business there was just 19 left, with three-time bracelet winner Brian Hastings bagging the chip lead, with a tremendous 667,000 in chips.

Some other big stacks moving on at the end of ten levels of play are Australia's Tim Marsters (572,000), four-time bracelet winner Jeff Madsen (416,000), France's Bruno Fitoussi (382,000), and Ben Landowski (364,000) rounding out the top five.

The star-studded lineup in the field to start Day 2 had many bracelet winners make it through to Day 3 including John Hennigan (361,000), Dutch Boyd (347,000), Andrew Brown (190,000), Carol Fuchs (132,000), Tony Ma (56,000) and six-time bracelet winner Jeff Lisandro (51,000).

It was on level 17 when Richard Fuller sent Brandon Shack-Harris home as the bubble boy with a higher two pair. All players were then guaranteed a min-cash of $4,462, Ryan Himes being the first one in the money as he was eliminated in the same hand as Shack-Harris but had a larger stack.

There were many notable players that made the money but were not fortunate enough to last until Day 3 including Phillip Hui (20th Place - $6,524), Benjamin Dobson (23rd Place - $6,524), Eli Elezra (24th Place - $6,524), Dan Heimiller (26th Place - $5,694), Brock Parker (35th Place - $5,105), Justin Liberto (36th Place - $5,105), David Singer (38th Place - $5,105), and Ben Yu (53rd Place - $4,462).

James Chen moved all in on third street and Tim Marsters made the call, the board ran out as follows:

Tim Marsters: {9-Hearts}{10-Hearts} / {j-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{j-Spades} / {j-Hearts}
James Chen: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} / {10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{8-Spades} / {k-Diamonds}

Marsters full house eliminated Chen from the tournament and added to his already large stack.


Phillip Hui was sent to the payout desk when he moved all in from the button with {q-Spades}{4-Hearts} and ran into Alan Steinberg's {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}. The board ran out dry and Steinberg took down the pot, eliminating Hui.

Brian Hastings just scooped a big pot off Carol Fuchs to claim the chip lead in the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. shortly before the day's end. On seventh street, Hastings bet, Fuchs raised, Hastings put in three bets and Fuchs called.

Hastings' four open cards and order were unclear as he quickly rearranged his cards, but once all seven were showing he had {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts} open for jacks full. Fuchs, with {3-Hearts}{A-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} showing, mucked her hand.

Chen Runs into a Monster

• Nível 20: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante


Kristan Lord: {x-}{x-} / {j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts} / {x-}
James Chen: {x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} / {x-}

James Chen completed, Kristan Lord raised and Chen made the call. Both players checked on fourth street, Lord would bet until showdown and Chen would make the call all the way down.

Lord turned over his hand to reveal {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{j-Hearts} for jacks full of tens and more than enough to take down the pot as Chen chucked his cards into the muck.

Hye Park: {4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} / {j-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} / {k-Spades}

Dobson Out in Two Steps

Omaha Hi-Lo

Both Jeff Madsen and Benjamin Dobson already had 70,000 each in front of them when the turn was dealt on {10-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Madsen bet 20,000 and Dobson called. The river was the {2-Spades} and Madsen bet again. Dobson, with 45,000 behind, peeked at his hole cards, but couldn't find a call and gave it up.


A few hands later, Dobson's final few bets went in on fourth street in Razz.

Benjamin Dobson: {A-}{3-} / {6-}{6-}{Q-}{Q-} / {K-}
Jesse Hampton: {X-}{X-} / {4-}{4-}{4-} - folded on fifth
Dutch Boyd: {A-}{5-} / {6-}{9-}{6-}{9-} / {2-}

It was likely the weirdest Razz rundown of the day, with players catching pairs all over. Hampton indicated he started with {2-}{3-} in the hole but gave it up on fifth. Dobson started with an {A-}{3-}{6-} but eventually made just a king-queen low. Boyd made a nine-six and Dobson went to the rail in 23rd.
