PokerNews hostess Kristy Arnett made Day 2 of this event with 22,000 in chips and we caught the first orbit at her table, which consists of 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event winner Jerry Yang, WSOP bracelet winner Brian Lemke and fellow bracelet winner Mike "Little Man" Sica.
On the first hand, Arnett was under the gun and raised to 1,800. Everyone folded and she won the pot.
On the second hand, Kenneth O'Donnell raised to 1,800 from middle position and action folded to Arnett in the big blind. She also folded and O'Donnell won the pot. O'Donnell then raised the next hand to 1,800 and won that one as well.
For the fourth hand, Robert Salaburu opened to 2,000 from the cutoff seat and Arnett folded her button. Sica made the call from the small blind and then checked in the dark before the dealer ran out the flop. Salaburu bet 2,200 and Sica quickly folded.
On the next hand, action folded to Justin Shelton and he moved all in for 13,200. Lemke called from the next seat and then action folded to Sica on the button. He reraised all in for a little over 15,000. When action got back to Lemke, he called the extra little bit and the hands were tabled.
The flop, turn and river ran out and Shelton tripled up. Sica was left with 2,200 in chips and Lemke with about 24,000.
Following that hand, Salaburu raised to 1,700 from middle position and Sica reraised all in for 2,100 from the cutoff seat. O'Donnell reshoved from the big blind to put Salaburu at risk and Salaburu snapped.
The board ran out and Salaburu doubled up. Sica was eliminated in the hand and O'Donnell was left with approximately 18,000 in chips.
After being eliminated, Sica stood up from the table, patted our reporter on the back and said, "Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."
On the next hand, Lemke raised from early position to 1,800. He was called by Salaburu in the next seat and William Maguire in the cutoff seat. The flop produced the and Lemke fired 2,100. William Maguire folded and Maguire called.
