DAY 2 UNDERWAY
After some brief announcements from poker room manager Cage Yanchunis, play is underway for Day 2 of the $1,100 Main Event from Golden Gates Casino here in Black Hawk, Colorado.
143 players returned. The top 81 are guaranteed at least $1,998. Chip stacks range from Jay McVeigh's big stack of 466,000 to the smallest stack of 29,000 that belongs to Eric Pratt.
We'll play down to the final nine players today no matter how long it takes. It could be a long day. Those final nine will return tomorrow to play at the televised table. That will be streamed on a delay at twitch.tv/hptpoker.
In addition to prize money, the winner of this event will take home the custom Citizen Eco-Drive watch as a memento.
BB Ante: 5,000
