Day 2 of Event #56: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em is in the books, and Canadian pro Ari Engel has bagged one of the top stacks heading into Day 3 on Canada Day tomorrow. He ended the day with 977,000 chips and hopes to earn Canada's second bracelet of the series on his country's 150th birthday.

Hungary's Marton Czuczor leads the remaining 32 players with 1,352,00 chips, worth 112 big blinds going into Day 3 when blinds start at 6,000/12,000 with a 2,000 ante. Behind him in second is Argentina's Norberto Korn with 1,098,000 chips, followed by Venezuela's Donis Agnelli (980,000) in third, Canada's Ari Engel (977,000) in fourth, and United States' Simon Lam rounding off the top five with 785,000. Interestingly enough, the top five stacks are represented by five different countries, showing what a diverse community the poker world has become.

The entire tournament brought forth a total of 623 entries, paying out 94 spots. The eventually winner will earn a whopping $618,285, but most importantly the coveted gold WSOP bracelet. A min-cash was worth $7,414, and the remaining 32 players are guaranteed to pocket $14,183 when they begin Day 3.

The day began with 250 players and dwindled down to just 32 to end the night. The bubble burst just after the dinner break, and it was Steve Karp who was responsible for bringing 94 players into the money. Jeff Hakim was the eventual bubble boy after losing a flop with ace-king, up against Karp's queens. A king hit the river, but it also completed a straight for Karp so he was eliminated in 95th place.

Jack Salter was one of the early chip leaders but gave up half of his stack after attempting to bluff Juha Helppi before the dinner break. Helppi tank-called after about five minutes and his straight was good to double up, making him one of the chip leaers. Ari Engel also built up a stack and stayed consistent throughout the day. Engel made a hero call, and followed that with winning a big pot with queens against Jonathan Concepcion's pocket tens. He clearly kept up with the momentum, bagging heaps at the end of the night.

The field today was stacked, so there's certainly a large list of notable players that made it through to Day 3 including Dietrich Fast (672,000), Juha Helppi (658,000), Damian Salas (481,000), Ravi Raghavan (467,000), Mike Watson(445,000), Matt Stout (389,000), Barny Boatman (361,000), Pierre Neuville (320,000), Matt Affleck (304,000), Aditya Agarwal (201,000), Andy Spears (197,000), and Darren Rabinowitz (174,000).

Final Table Payouts:

PrizePlace (USD)

Many big names made their way to Day 2, and a lot of them made the money but weren't able to go deep, including Ivan Luca (36th place - $14,183), Jack Salter (37th place - $12,147), Benjamin Heath (43rd place - $12,147), Matt Berkey (44th place - $12,147), Olivier Busquet (61st place - $9,466), Cate Hall (73rd place - $8,020), and Chris Hunichen (88th place - $7,626).

Only 94 players made the money, meaning a good chunk of the field hit the rail without cash in their pockets, including the likes of Jason Mercier, Ryan Laplante, Maria Ho, Federico Butteroni, Gerg Merson, Matt Salsberg, Paul Volpe, Jeff Gross, and Natasha Mercier.

Keep following along as PokerNews reports all of the action over the next two days on the way to crowning a winner in this event.

Agnelli Sends Luca to the Rail

[user339872] • Nível 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Ivan Luca has been grinding a small stack for quite some time now and was even down to just 7,000 chips. Luca worked his way back to a reasonable stack of around 200,000 until he ran into Donis Agnelli.

Luca and Agnelli got all of their chips in the middle preflop with Luca showing {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}, but Agnelli tabled {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}. The board ran out {j-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs} and Luca was eliminated late in the evening.

Tim West Has the All-In Button on Speed Dial

[user339872] • Nível 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Tim West was down to his last 65,000 chips and after Marton Czuczor raised to 25,000 and received a call, West put his last few chips to work. Czuczor pushed all-in over the top and the two were heads-up with West being the one at risk. Czuczor tabled {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} and West held {A-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. The board ran out clean for West and more than doubled up his stack.

In just a few hands later, West moved all-in for around 135,000 and Mike Watson pushed all-in as well. When the action was complete both players showed pocket kings and chopped the pot.

The next two hands, West shipped all-in both time and picked up the blinds and antes as he now sits over 250,000 chips.
