The PokerNews Live Reporting Team are back in the Amazon Room and we are getting set for another exciting day of all-round poker action, with Day 2 of the $2,500 10-Game Mixed Event!
Yesterday's starting field of 431 players almost read like an honor roll of poker's finest, and indeed, it's one of those big names that tops the chip counts today - "Miami" John Cernuto.
The 67-year-old finance major-turned-professional poker player already has three WSOP bracelets to his name, across three different disciplines of the game. The first came in 1996 when he won the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better event, then he picked up the second in a $2,000 No Limit Hold'em event the following year before winning the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event in 2002. Add to that 49 WSOP in-the-money finishes, as well as a final table appearance in the WPT and over $5.1 million in tournament cashes since 1987, and you know that he's no easybeat.
Nor are any of the other 161 players that are returning today - just some of the names include Greg Raymer, Freddy Deeb, Lyle Berman, Jeff Madsen, the brothers Mizrachi (Robert and Michael), John Hennigan, Alexander Kostritsyn, Steve Zolotow, Mike Matusow, Alexander Kravchenko, John Juanda and Terrence Chan ... the list goes on!
It's going to go off like a frog in a sock here, so be sure to stay tuned with us right here at PokerNews as we bring you every blow-up, bad beat and boomswitch moment from 3pm PST (GMT -7). Game on!
