At day's end, it was Alex Foxen (2,070,000) who bagged the chip lead. Foxen, the well-known pro from New York, has more than $22 million in recorded live tournament earnings.
Foxen led throughout much of the day and secured his place at the top of the leaderboard after a sick bluff against Kitty Kuo and a couple of late-night knockouts. He is still seeking his first WSOP bracelet, but he takes a big advantage into Day 3.
Some of the other notable players to bag up at the end of Day 2 included pros Adrian Mateos (1,465,000) and Felipe Ramos (970,000), poker commentator Jeff Platt (790,000), Alexandros Theologis (695,000), and Kyriakos Papadopoulos (610,000).
Those who fell during the day include Raj Vohra. He took down his maiden bracelet late Monday night. Vohra managed to drill a two-outer to double early, but he did not find a bag. Shannon Shorr also found some early run good, but did not advance to Day 3.
Other notables to bust a bullet included Mustapha Kanit, Alexandre Reard, Manig Loeser, Qui Nguyen, and poker commentators Nick Schulman, Tony Dunst, Brent Hanks, and Maria Ho.
