Maduka Meragal Leads Final 49 Players at end of Day 2

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Maduka Meragal Day 2 has ended at the partypoker.net WPT Montreal Main Event at the Playground Poker Club and there are just 49 remaining from the initial field of 732 players (301 returned at the start of Day 2). They played deep into the money tonight after Anthony Zinno busted on the money bubble after the dinner break.

The chip leader at the end of play tonight is Maduka Meragal with 1,423,000. Meragal took the chip lead tonight when he eliminated Serge Cantin in 76th place. Meragal held just over a million after that hand, and built steadily from there to end the night at the top of the leader board.

Other big stacks were bagged up by local pro Marc-Andre Ladouceur (1,071,000), Mukul Pahuja (1,024,000), Phillip Hui (909,000), and TJ Ulmer (800,000). Pahuja is the reigning Season XII WPT Player of the Year, but he is still searching for his first WPT title. He has a reasonable shot at advancing to his fourth WPT final table -- and his second consecutive at WPT Monreal -- with the stack he has built so far.

While Pahuja will be attempting to join the WPT Champions Club here in Canada, there are a handful of former champions who are still in the hunt with a chance to win multiple WPT titles. Those players are Antonio Esfandiari, Andy Frankenberger, and recent WPT Legends of Poker champion Harry Arutyunyan. 

The notables that cashed tonight included Paul Volpe (90th), Cornel Cimpan (85th), Elliot Smith (78th), Mike Mcdonald (74th), Darren Elias (69th), Xuan Liu (67th), and Scott Clements (60th). After becoming the first player to win back-to-back WPT events at the WPT Borgata Poker Open and WPT Caribbean stops earlier this season, Elias scored yet another cash and increased his lead in the Season XIII WPT POY race.

The familiar faces that were less fortunate on Day 2 and took their leave before the bubble burst were Mike Leah, Micah Raskin, Matt Marafioti, Keven Stammen, Mike Watson, Michael Gracz, David Williams, Eugene Katchalov, Dylan Wilkerson, Jason Mercier, ClubWPT Qualifier James Hefley, Jeff Gross, Brian Rast, Curt Kohlberg, Byron Kaverman, and WPT Raw Deal Analyst Tony Dunst.

Every player that returns for Day 3 is guaranteed to make at least CAD $10,120, but they will all be gunning for the final table, where the largest pieces of the $2,192,888 total prize pool will be up for grabs on Wednesday, November 26. Play resumes at 12:00 PM ET.
