Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Welcome to Day 2 of Event #17 $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Liv Boeree has a top ten starting stack going into Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Event #17 $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em; the event where the famous words, "all-in," are replaced by the single word, "pot." The removal of the ability to shove your chips into the middle, and the absence of antes, means that this format is a little slower than its Cadillac cousin. But despite the reduction in speed the quality of poker on display is amazing, and this is because of the calibre of players left in the 69 man and woman strong field.

In the top ten we have the chip leader Steve Landfish with two World Series of Poker final table appearances under his belt, multiple bracelet winner Farzad Bonyadi, one of the most feared players on the planet and last years WSOPE Main Event runner-up Chris Moorman, bracelet winner and World Poker Tour (WPT) champion David Benyamine, poker's golden couple and double European Poker Tour (EPT) winners Kevin MacPhee and Liv Boeree and finally multiple bracelet winner and all-time money leader Erik Seidel.

If you add Phil Ivey, Shaun Deeb, Sorel Mizzi, JP Kelly, Olivier Busquet, Antonio Esfandiari et al into the mix then this is some tournament and it is going to take some winning!

The Day 2 action starts at 13:00 PM direct from the Amazon room. The Pokernews team will be on site to bring you the very best coverage on the planet so stay tuned.
