• Nivo 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Bill Chen is 5th in chips.

Day 2 of the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Triple Chance ended with ten players moving on to Day 3 from 156 that started the day. Nicholas Rampone leads the way with 1.5 million, followed by Anders Meli and Bill Chen.

Moving on to Day 3 are Andrea Dato, David Diaz and Steve Watts. Players were busting quickly near the end of play making it possible to begin Day 3 close to the final table. When there were two levels left in the night the field still had 27 players.

Not surviving the day were J.C. Tran, Cliff Josephy, Andy Black, Carlos Mortensen, Ted Forrest and Andy Frankenberger.

Jerry Wong busted on the bubble in a particularly brutal fashion. He picked up pocket aces and ran into Justin Chan’s {K-Hearts} {Q-Spades}. Chan caught a king on the flop and paired his queen on the turn sending Chan home.

Play resumes at 2:30 p.m. PST and we’ll crown a winner. Be sure follow all the action on PokerNews.com.
