Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the 2011 World Series of Poker for Day 2 of the Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em.
Over the first two days, 4,178 players took to the felt to form a prizepool of $3,760,200 with the top 423 players all receiving a guaranteed $1,880 payday.
623 players remain, and with plenty of short stacks, action is going to be fast and furious as players jostle for position on the leaderboard. Charles Sewell is currently the top dog with an amassed 137,350 in chips, but he will have to be careful of many highly-talented players left such as Jon Turner (99,200), Albert Kim (74,675), Jason Koon (73,075) and John Eames (70,250) who are all in the top ten.
The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will again be on the floor providing comprehensive live updates from 2:30 pm PDT, so make sure to stay tuned to PokerNews.com as we write the story of the upcoming Event #8 Champion.
