From a strong starting turnout of 827 entries, the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event is down to 155 and on to Day 2. The series headliner boasted a $1,000,000 guarantee that was easily bested by the time registration closed with a prize pool in excess of $1,200,000. The top 90 are set to finish in the money and it’s Flight B’s Andrew Pacifico that’s tops to begin the restart.
Pacifico bagged impressive holdings of 493,000 and he’s in pole position by a huge margin. Second in chips belongs to Kevin Ho with 285,500 while Alex Beece is in third with 283,500. Others around on Day 2 include David Prociak, TK Miles, Mukul Pahuja and Jerry Wong.
As mentioned, only 90 will finish in the money and all who cash will lock up $2,804. In addition to $241,898, the champion will earn a WSOP Circuit gold ring and a berth in the season-ending National Championship.
We’ll be back at 12pm to provide updates through Day 2’s completion.
