Young Sik Eum Leads the Final Nine in Monster Stack

The original plan was to play 14 levels today, but after getting down to the final table of nine, play was halted for the night. On the final hand of the night, Jarod Einsohn shoved his short stack in from the button with [As][8s], and in the big blind, Jason Hickey woke up with [Ac][Jc]. The board ran down [Js][7s][2h][2c][8h], giving Einsohn hope on the flop, but ultimately busting him.

Leading the way tomorrow will be Young Sik Eum, who bagged over six million in chips. Massoud Eskandari, fresh off his runner up finish in the Turbo Event a few days ago, is second with 5.65 million. Scroll down for the rest of the final table players, and be sure to come back tomorrow at 12 PM for the Day 3 finals, where one of these players will take home nearly $70,000!

Congratulations to Justin Chauvin, Winner of Event #4



Justin Chauvin vaulted into the chip lead when he doubled through Said El Harrak, crippling him in the process. Chauvin would go on to bust El Harrak, and heads up play would last only one or two hands, as Chauvin busted Elvis Toomas after flopping trip fives.

For his efforts, Chauvin will take home $6,850, and his second WSOP Circuit ring. Congratulations to everyone who cashed in the event, especially our winner, Justin Chauvin!

Chris Klodnicki Is the Bubble Boy

Chris Klodnicki finished runner up in two massive events here at the end of last year, but he won't be doing that again in this event, as he just finished on the bubble. After a late position raise, Klodnicki shoved all in with his King-Ten suited from the small blind. The original raiser made the call with pocket jacks, and Klodnicki was never able to catch up.

This means the 96 remaining players are now $625 richer! We will post the full prize pool when we get it from the floor, which should be fairly soon.

Registration Closes as the Bubble Approaches

We ended the day with 47 Day 2 buy-ins, giving us a total field of 146 players. We are nearly at the bubble already, as 100 player remain, with 96 of them getting paid at least $625. Stay tuned for the full list of payouts, as well as the first round of chip counts near the top of the hour.
