Day 2 of Event #62: $10,000 Razz Championship has finished after seven 90-minute levels and 12 players remain in the hunt for the coveted gold bracelet in the latest Championship Event of the 2019 World Series of Poker.

With the registration open until the cards went back in the air at 2 p.m. local time, another 20 hopefuls took advantage to join the action with just under eight big bets and that boosted the field size to 116 entries, just three shy of last year's number.

Four of the late entries will turn a profit in the tournament and a late charge saw Chris Ferguson claim the top spot after Day 2 with a stack of 1,280,000. Fellow late entrants Scott Seiver (622,000), George Alexander (593,000) and Mike Gorodinsky (227,000) also advanced to the penultimate day with at least $20,528 locked up for their efforts.

Three-time WSOP bracelet winner David Bach sits in second place with a 1,087,000 and has secured a fourth cash at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino this summer, he came close to adding another bracelet to his collection after finishing second to Australia's Robert Campbell in Event #33 $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw.

Andrey Zhigalov (976,000), 2019 WSOP Player of the Year contender Dan Zack (815,000), Daniel Negreanu (478,000), defending champion Calvin Anderson (385,000), Marco Johnson (297,000), Andre Akkari (106,000) and Cary Katz (96,000) also remain in contention.

Among those to secure a portion of the $1,090,400 prize pool and bow out after the bubble burst were James Obst, Max Pescatori, Mikhail Semin, James Chen, Michael McKenna, and Mark Gregorich, while Scott Bohlman ended up as the unfortunate bubble boy.

Action of the Day

A queue was forming 10 minutes before the restart in the Amazon Gold section as 20 players were waiting for seat assignments and the cards got in the air with defending champion Calvin Anderson firmly in the mix. Anderson went on a heater to take over the lead and was spotted raking in pot after pot in the first levels of the day.

Scott Seiver turned on the heat by sending Matthew Gonzales and Todd Brunson to the rail in quick succession and other big names among the early casualties included Stephen Chidwick, Ben Yu, Brian Hastings, David "Bakes" Baker, and Benny Glaser. Not far away from the money bubble, they were joined on the rail by Mike Ross, Donnacha O'Dea, Christopher Kruk, and Andrew Kelsall.

The money bubble burst in the fourth level of the day and it was Scott Bohlman that saw his made seventy-five on sixth street shot down by David Bach, who had a sixty-five draw and spiked a deuce on the river to oust Bohlman in cruel fashion.

Several short stacks had stuck around close to the money with very few big bets at their disposal and headed to the payout desk soon after the min cash of $14,872 was secured such as James Obst and Max Pescatori. Mikhail Semin was eliminated by David Bach, and James Chen paired up twice to run out of chips in a hand against Cary Katz.

By then, the early run good of defending champion Calvin Anderson had stopped and he dropped to as low as two big bets. Anderson doubled twice to get back in contention and the penultimate level of the night brought two further casualties in Michael McKenna and Mark Gregorich.

Chris Ferguson and David Bach boosted their stacks at the very end, and they will be the only two players above a million when the action resumes at 2 p.m. local time on Friday on the outer tables with limits of 20,000/40,000. Day 3 will play down to the final six players and the PokerNews team will be on the floor to provide all the action from start to finish.
