Day 2 of Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud will begin in roughly a half hour. Yesterday, 357 players packed into the Pavilion Room, but only 112 were fortunate enough to make it through the day. Kerry Shakura is the chip leader with 49,300, but biting at his heels are a myriad of proven players including Ylon Schwartz (46,000), Shaun Deeb (33,300), Eli Elezra (27,800), and John D'Agostino (27,000).
The plan is to play ten levels today, unless we reach a final table before that time. Cards will be in the air at 3 p.m. local time, so keep it locked for all of your up-to-the-second updates! In the meantime, allow Lynn Gilmartin to briefly update you across all events:
