So Podiman did us proud in the ME finishing in the top 100. Badgerpro also made a deep run and SirWatts finished just shy of the $$$. Now comes the WPT Bellagio Cup $15k tournament. This just in from the WPT site:
"Mike "SirWatts" Watson is putting the floor staff here in the Fontana Lounge to work, busting 3 players in 2 hands.
First, a player open shoved under the gun for his entire stack, Watson made the call from middle position, and another player calls behind him.
The under the gun player turns over A-6, Watson holds pocket queens, and the third player has pocket jacks. The board does not improve any of the three hands and Watson takes down the 350,000 chip pot.
After the hand, Watson explained that the player who moved all-in had been pushing several times over the past few rounds, so his large overshove was not very surprising to the rest of the table.
The very next hand, Watson is still stacking his large mess of chips when the player under the gun moves all-in for his remaining 24,800 chips. It folds around to Watson on the button and he deliberates for a minute before calling. Everyone else folds and the other player reveals K10 while Watson has AJ. The board comes out J53109 and Watson knocks out another one, increasing his stack to 412,000.
Watson resumes stacking his winnings as Tony "Bond18" Dunst is moved into one of the vacant seats and he is shocked to see his friend with such a large stack. Following behind Dunst to fill the other seats are Thayer Rasmussen and Glen "Choron" Chorny, making for a stacked table to play out the last five hands of the night. "
Looks like day 2 is about to end with 125 players remaining and SirWatts, Bond18 and Thay3r are all in the hunt. Good luck, boys!!!
