Welcome back to the Rio for Day 2 of Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em.
Each of the 262 players coming back today look to take home the $559,514 first-place prize money. We are 19 players away from the money bubble, and expect to see that burst pretty early on. We hope to get down to our final nine players, but with the massive field we might not make it.
Jessica Bertrand Hanna comes in today as our chip leader with 149,500. This isn't going to be a cakewalk though; with Victor Ramdin, Randy Lew, and Jonathan Aguiar in the field anything can happen. With a handful of strong professionals scattered around the Amazon room today, we expect some late-stage comebacks.
Play is set to begin at 1:00 PM, stay tuned with Pokernews for all the live coverage.
