Sunday July 11,2015 : MORE MAIN EVENT CHAMPS FALL AT WORLD SERIES OF POKER
The last of the starter flights is complete, from now on the fields combine.
Day 2C at the World Series of Poker is in the books, with more previous champions falling but many formidable players still in contention.
Former champions Jamie Gold, Robert Varkonye, Huck Seed and Peter Eastgate are all out of the competition as the starting field of 2,765 was whittled down to just 1,770 going forward to Day 3, when all the started flight survivors combine in one big field.
Others who will not be participating further this year include Phil Ivey, Bertrand Grospellier, Anthony Zinno and Michael Mizrachi.
When the floor directors wrapped up Thursday's contest David Jackson was leading with a healthy 408,000 stack…but that's way behind the 603,500 accumulated by Amar Anand in an earlier flight
There are still many powerful players with decent stacks set for the tables on Day 3, including Scotty Nguyen, Joe Hachem, Phil Hellmuth, Ryan Riess, Daniel Negreanu, Kevin Mathers, Daniel Alaei, JC Tran, Matt Glantz and the youthful WSOP Europe and EPT Grand Final champ, Adrian Mateos.
