Good afternoon and welcome to the second day of the Ferrari of poker. We are of course talking about Event #23 $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed. With only 141 players left and 108 players guaranteed at least $5,019 we expect to hit the money within the first few hours.
One person who is used to reaching the money at this years World Series of Poker (WSOP) is Jeff Manza. The chip leader, with 275,000 chips, has a 50% cash-record, so far this year, and looks set to increase those percentages in this tournament.
Manza has a good 100,000 chips more than Aaron Jones. Jones was the chip leader for most of the afternoon showing how he excels in this format. The poker coach and genius will be a real danger in this tournament. Other players to keep a beady eye on include Kyle Julius, Kyle Weir, Roberto Romanello, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, David Benyamine and Eugene Katchalov.
The action moves into the Amazon room today where we commence play at 13:00 PM. The plan will be to play ten sixty-minute levels, with twenty-minute break every second level and a sixty-minute dinner break after the sixth level.
