Big One For One Drop Day 2 – Salomon Leads 9

Big one for one drop

The aim for Day 2 of the World Series of Poker ‘Big One For One Drop’ was for the final table of eight to be reached with all players in the money. They ran out of time however and despite the vocal protests from a number of players, they will all have to come back tomorrow to see who is eliminated without pay.

With so much money you can imagine how intense the action at the tables must be, playing in a field so strong that one minute you are holding a massive lead and then not too long later you are busted. This is what happened to Sam Trickett who went from hero to zero on Day 2 and went home empty handed.

There were 31 players that began the day and despite many eliminations and broken hearts, the players still do not know who has at least got their money back and a little on top.

Leading at the end of Day 2 is Rick Salomon who bagged up 23,575,000 to give him about a 700k advantage over Tobias Reinkemeier in second place. Others who will be back tomorrow include PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu, Scott Seiver and Daniel Colman.

Those who fell alongside Trickett on Day 2 included Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari, Dan Cates, Greg Merson and Jean-Robert Bellande.

Day 3 tomorrow should reveal who is set to take that huge 1st place payout of more than $15 million and a bracelet to boot. Be sure to catch us with our final report on the event tomorrow.
