With two days completed, and 27 players remaining, Mark Seif tops the World Poker Challenge at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada. Barry Greenstein was eliminated on the bubble, and left the World Poker Tour (WPT) tournament empty-handed.

Day 2 of the World Poker Challenge was action-packed, with lots of spectacular hands and great plays.

In the hand of the day, Erick Lindgren, Chantel McNulty, and a third player was all-in pre-flop. Lindgren showed Ah-Kh, McNulty flipped over pocket queens, and the third player held pocket aces.

According to's poker odds calculator, Erick Lindgren only had about 10% chance to win the hand, but that was enough for Lindgren, who made a flush on the river, and knocked his two opponents out of the tournament.

Lindgren is in 9th place after Day 2 with $188,000 in chips, way behind the leader Mark Seif who sits with $535,000.

Other strong contestants fighting for a seat at the final table include David Pham, Joe Sebok, Mike Matusow, J.C. Tran, and Brandon Cantu.
