Break Time; Power, Sylvestre and Lhommeau Lead, First Few Bustouts Occur

• Taso 2: 100-200, 0 ante
Day 1a of the Main Event

Players are now heading on their second 20-minute break of the day.

The second level of play saw several eliminations occur with Steven Sanzone becoming the first player to hit the rail when he called off and was shown a flush by Ryan Franklin. Pete Linton would be one of the next players to fall when he moved all in with {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and couldn't outdraw Antonio Venneri's {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}.

Several new players such as Layne Flack, Tim Phan, Kenny Tran and Andy Bloch all took a seat while the likes of David Benefield, Jason Mercier, David Vamplew and Amanda Musumeci all began sliding down the chip counts page. However, level two would be moving level for multiple players as pots began getting bigger and players starting adjusting to their tables.

Aaron Wilt kept building from his earlier full house while WSOP bracelet winners Naoya Kihara, Mike Gorodinsky, John Monnette and Abe Mosseri started trending upwards. However it would be the lesser known Eric Worre who is on the feature table with Ryan Riess, Greg Merson and Bill Perkins that would take the top spot early in the level.

As play closed in on the level, WSOP bracelet winner Charles Sylvestre launched to the top of the counts along with Damien Lhommeau as both players ended the level with roughly 72,000. However it would be Chad Power powering his way to the number one spot with roughly three-times the starting stack.
