Day 2 Ends w/68; Eric Afriat Leads w/1,003,000

Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Eric Afriat 3 Day 2 has come to a close at the WPT World Championship, sponsored by partypoker, and 68 players have survived from the 200 that started the day. They will return tomorrow to play down into the money when 36 players remain.

The chip leader at the end of play tonight is Eric Afriat (pictured above) with 1,003,000 and he is head and shoulders above the rest of the field. Other top stacks were baged up by Anthony Gregg (567,000), Athanasios Polychronopoulos (542,500), Scott Seiver (539,500), and Ryan D'Angelo (519,500), Poker Hall of Fame member Phil Hellmuth has advanced with 54,000 and NFL wide receiver Miles Austin made it through with 74,500.

Also advancing to Day 3 are a pair of online qualifiers. ClubWPT.com's David Daggett has a stack of 368,500 putting him well above the chip average. Jonathan Tamayo won his seat on DraftKings.com, and he finished even stronger with 411,000 -- good for a spot in the overnight Top 10.

» Day 3 Seat Draw

Shaun Suller was one of the many notables to bust today, and his elimination means Mukul Pahuja has locked up WPT Season XII Player of the Year honors. Pahuja cashed five times this season, including three final tables, and won a total of more than $1.4 million. His POY point total of 3,450 is also the record for most in a season.

Day 3 will begin on Thursday at 12:00 p.m. ET. The plan is for the field to play down to the final 27 players but that could be adjusted depending on the pace of play. Whatever the case, the WPT Live Updates team will have all of the action for you in live updates, chip counts, photos, and videos from New Jersey.
