The Leaderboard Appears on the Chip Counts Page

Now that the field is in the money, we will be activating our Chip Counts page of the Live Updates, though for the time being it will only represent the chipleaders at the top of the leaderboard. (Since there are so many players in the field to track.)

Starting with tomorrow’s Day 3 field, every player in the tournament will be regularly updated on the Chip Counts page.

Jacob Naquin Eliminated by Chino Rheem on the Bubble

Jacob Naquin Bust Out
Jacob Naquin stands by his table just after bubbling the SHRPO Main Event.

Chino Rheem just took out Jacob Naquin on the money bubble when Chino’s pocket nines held up on a board that ran out Q-7-5-Q-8 against Naquin’s A-K. Naquin was one of the chip leaders (10th in chips) at the start of the day but now he is cast as the unfortunate bubble boy. We are now in the money and every player remaining will take home at least $7,500.

Sanchez Takes Big Pot Off Armstrong

Blinds: 2,000/4,000
Ante: 500

Picking up the action after the turn of a Kc Qc Jd 2h board, Neri Sanchez (in the cutoff) check-calls 48,000 from Jamie Armstrong (button) to see the 5d river where Sanchez check-calls another 114,000 from Armstrong.

Armstrong mucked immediately, while Sanchez turned over Qh 8h for a pair of queens to collect the pot.
