It was a short day at the WSOP's $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. World Championship with just five levels playing out at the Rio.

Greg Mueller and David Williams headline the final table of the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em shootout event after Day 2 action saw a field of 64 survivors whittled down to an eight-handed final table.

Jose Barbero and Marc Naalden also snagged final table seats, while EPT3 Dortmund champ Andreas Hoivold just barely missed the cut.

The penultimate donkament of the 2009 WSOP was an unmitigated success as a field of 2,781 entrants sold out the Amazon Room in a quest for a piece of a $3.8 million prize pool.

Among the 350 players advancing to Day 2 are chipleader Christopher Bonita as well as Amnon Filippi and Jason Potter.

Meanwhile, Paul Wasicka, Jason Mercier and Marc "The Beaver" Convey were among the multitudes who failed to survive the first day's action.

Action will resume at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
