On Tuesday, the World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open continued as the remaining 606 players from a 1,226-entry field returned to compete for a share of a $3,924,426 prize pool.
Normally locating the chip leader in a large field at the end of the night proves to be a challenge, but Blake Bohn‘s towers of 5,000 chips made him quite easy to spot. Bohn bagged up 807,500 – more than 150,000 chips than Darren Elias in second place – as the chip leader for Day 2 of the World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open.

Others who bagged up big stacks were WPT regular Justin Zaki (618,000); online pro Darren Elias (594,000); and reigning WPT Player of the Year Mukul Pahuja (562,000.
Justin Zaki, Mukul Pahuja, Erik Cajelais, Ryan Riess, Daniel Weinman and defending champ Anthony Zinno all bagged up stacks well above the average. Dan Shak, Jamie Kerstetter, Eddy Sabat, Zo Karim, Dan O’Brien and Malik Rose bagged around average stacks, while Russell Thomas, Mike Sexton, Jared Hamby and Ebony Kenney have their work cut out for them as some of the shorter returning stacks.
The long tournament grind sent Matt Stout, Melissa Burr, Loni Harwood, Richard Seymour, Matt Waxman, Joe Kuether, Kara Scott, Keven Stammen, Mike Leah, Shaun Deeb and Carlos Mortensen to the rail.
Play began at noon with 606 returning players and after eight levels the field was trimmed to 150 players – just 30 players off the money bubble.
Defending WPT World Champ Keven Stammen fell in Level 14 (1,200/2,400/400) when he raised all in for 19,000 from early position and received a call from Dan O’Brien in middle position. O’Brien mucked, and Stammen took his leave from the tournament.
Others who fell on Day 2 included Loni Harwood, Matt Salsberg, Matthew Waxman, Lily Kiletto, Mike Linster, Matt Stout, Melissa Burr, Jonathan Little, Kara Scott, Joe Kuether, Mike Leah, Will “The Thrill” Failla, and Carlos Mortensen.
While hundreds fell, plenty of notables made it through to Day 3 including Day 1b chip leader Darlene Lee (440,000); 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Ryan Riess (388,000); defending champ Anthony Zinno (287,500); WPT champ Cornel Cimpan (285,000); 2005 WSOP Main Event runner-up Steve Dannenmann (283,000); and Day 1a chip leader Ben Bianco (191,000).
The remaining 150 players will return at 12 p.m. ET on Wednesday for Day 3 action. Just 120 players will make the money, meaning 30 will leave empty handed.
