"Isildur1" Making Moves In The WSOPE Main EventPublished on September 25th, 2010 11:22 pm EST
Day 2 of the WSOPE main event came to a close a few hours ago.
The tournament's largest stack heading into Day 3 on Sunday will be none other than Viktor Blom, who is best known as being the man behind the infamous "Isildur1" account on Full Tilt Poker.
Blom managed to finish Day 2 with a stack of around 443k, which put him slightly ahead of Bojan Gledovic (442,300) heading into Day 3.
There are many talented and well-known players that are still alive in this tournament.
Phil Ivey, who is looking to win his ninth World Series of Poker bracelet, managed to finish Day 2 with one of the tournament's largest stacks (289,300).
Yevgeniy Timoshenko (223k), Nick Schulman (190k), Barry Greenstein (175k), Huck Seed (148k), Daniel Negreanu (143k) and Eli Elezra (117k) are just some of the names that are still in contention for the WSOPE main event bracelet after two full days of play.
In addition to the coveted WSOPE main event bracelet, all 69 of the remaining players in the tournament also have their eyes transfixed on the first place prize of over 830k GBP (roughly $1.3 million USD).
As mentioned yesterday, the top 36 spots in the tournament will pay out a minimum of 21,106 GBP. The tournament is expected to play down to 27 players on Sunday, meaning that the money bubble will burst before the end of the day.
