Phil Collins Rocks The Bike: WPT Legends Wraps Day 2

The incomparable Vinny Vinh.

After a full seven 90-minute levels on Day 2 at the Bike, things began to take shape in the 2010 WPT Legends of Poker main event.

The field was pared down from 241 to some 61 and at least one big stack has emerged as a contender for the $750k first-place prize and prestigious Legends title.

Phil "USCphildo" Collins was up all night with some kind of food poisoning but returned today to bust big stacked WPT final tablist Raymond Dolan and Justin Young on the way to a massive overnight lead.

JC Alvarado built a big stack, but it still doesn't amount to half the clay Collins collected.

Among the notables to bust on Day 2 were Erick Lindgren, Jared Hamby, Jeff Madsen, Barry Greenstein, Chad Batista, Allen Cunningham, and Phil Hellmuth.

However, a number of big names remain in contention, including Vinny Vinh, David "Doc" Sands, Tim Phan, Marco Johnson, Darryl Fish, Erica Schoenberg, November Niner Soi Nguyen and Amit Makhija, who made runner-up here in 2008.

With three more days of play before a winner emerges, there's still a ton of poker to be played in Los Angeles.
