The 50th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) has just entered its third week of play, and almost every event so far has seen a prominent Indian presence. Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha was no different. Day 2 on Thursday welcomed 309 survivors from a starting field of 1,526 players with two Indians still in the running. Pranay Kapoor (cover image) was the only one from the duo to cross the money line. He finished 95th for his second-ever WSOP cash and his first this year for $2,077 (~₹1.44 Lakhs).

The other Indian on Day 2 was two-time bracelet winner Nipun Java who came into play with 69,500 in chips. Java started off well by chipping up to 106,500 early on, but lost his tournament life to Matt ‘All In At 420’ Stout. As usual, Java kept us railbirds informed on his progress on Twitter.

The bags came out after nine hours of intense action, and only 58 stacks were bagged. Leading the way is local player Gary Bolden (1,700,000) who got ahead in the last few levels of the day. Gregory Donatelli (1,563,000) and Anton Morgenstern (1,305,000) are the next top stacks.

All 58 survivors are assured to take home at least $3,472, but all eyes will be on poker’s crown jewel and the hefty top prize worth $236,673.

Among the poker elite still in the running include Sam Razavi (512,000), Christopher Conrad (343,000), Martijn Gerrits (286,000), Jon Turner (193,000), JC Tran (176,000), Steve Rassi (30,500), and Eric Goldstein (20,000).

There are a host of Indian-origin players still in contention as well like Adithya Sundar (664,000), Jaspal Brar (243,000), Jaspreet Panchhi (70,500) and Pushpinder Singh (56,500).

Many others busted through the course of the day, but those who made it in the money were Paresh Doshi (202nd for $1,556 ~₹1.08 Lakhs) and Ajay Chabra (219th for $1,502 ~₹1.04 Lakhs).

Other hotshots who managed to cash include Mike Linster (86th for $2,313), Gary Kosakowski (93rd for $2,077), Erik Seidel (131st for $1,746), John Racener (154th for $1,636), Phil Laak (157th for $1,636), Chris Moorman (179th for $1,636), Joao Vieira (224th for $1,502), and Dietrich Fast (227th for $1,502).
