Check Regal Poker for Latest Poker News, tips and more.
(pokernews.com) – The first of two Day 2’s in the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event kicked off at the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino Wednesday. The 470 survivors from Day 1A and 1,154 from Day 1B returned with plans to play five two-hour levels in separate rooms.
Almost 200 players busted before the day’s first level was through, including 2003 WSOP Main Eventchamp Chris Moneymaker. In the meantime, Canadian Charles Sylvestre pushed past the 200,000-chip post and into the lead. Sylvestre held that lead through the next level as another couple hundred players hit the rail, including two more former champs, Johnny Chan and Dan Harrington.

The dinner break came after the day’s third level, but not before another Canadian moved to the top of the counts. Joe Lu pushed over the 400,000-chip mark flopping the nut-straight in a massive four-way pot to climb the ladder.
Amar Anand used the post dinner break level to win more than his fair share of flips and become the first player up to half a million in chips. In the meantime, Carlos Mortensen became yet another former Main Event winner to go broke. That left under 800 total players heading into the final level of the night, and by the time all was said and done, approximately 650 remained.
Hollywood came into Day 2 well represented with Academy Award nominees Jennifer Tilly andJames Woods in the field, unfortunately both busted before the day was done.
Anand pushed up to 603,500 in chips once five levels were through, winning a ton of pots in the final level without showdown and bagging the chip lead. Originally inspired by Moneymaker’s 2003 Main Event win, this is actually the fourth time the 27-year-old University of Michigan computer science and economics grad has played the Main Event. He said last year he busted seven spots off the money.
