WSOP 2007: Day 2B finished

Gus Hansen
Gus Hansen with a big stack - this year's WSOP champion?

With 1,303 players starting out on Day 2B, nine hours and four minutes of play left 450 players standing. Tomorrow they'll join the 349 remaining players from Day 2A and play for the WSOP title.

Day 3 begins at noon with 13 minutes of play remaining in Level 11, with blinds and antes of 1,200/2,400/300. Approximately 800 players will sit down and battle it out for the 2007 WSOP title in a combined field.

With 621 money places, this year's Bitterest Bubble is bound to come down quite a while before the Las Vegas sun during Day 3.

The step from zero to $20,000 is noticeable for quite a few of those players, after all, and one of them will be the last one leaving the Rio without a comforting lump of cash.

Some big names remain in the field, such as Danish star Gus Hansen on second place with 530,000 in chips, and Todd Brunson with 95,000. Many others have been knocked out: Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker and Allen Cunningham all have to watch the rest of the World Championship from the rail.

About Lars Sundin

Lars is a Stockholm-based writer with a master’s degree in mathematics and language studies under his belt. He has always been keenly interested in games, and online poker immediately captured him when he discovered it in April 2003.

“Poker isn’t just one of the best games out there; it also lends itself to various kinds of mathematical treatment - an added plus!” says Lars.

While he usually tends to jump from ice floe to ice floe when it comes to passions, poker has remained an unusually stable part of Lars’ leisure time since he first sat down at Paradise Poker.
