Late Bloomers on Day 2

Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

At the end of the night last night, two players finished on a particularly high note -- Amanda Musumeci and chipleader Jeff Gross.


2637 Amanda Musumeci
Amanda Musumeci put in a gritty performance all day long on Day 2, grinding thru the levels with a short stack as the field burst the money bubble and beyond.

But Musumeci won a key three-way all-in in the final minutes of the day to catapult up to 1,000,000 in chips, putting her in a strong position here at the start of Day 3.


2427 Chipleader Jeff Gross
Jeff Gross had a very different day than Amanda Musumeci, as he was slowly building his stack all day long. But he switched to a higher gear about halfway thru the day, really increasing his stack until he busted a player (pictured above) in the final half hour to reach 2.4 million in chips.


2569 Chipleader Jeff Gross
Phil Laak (standing, right) stopped by to check on Jeff Gross, and was shocked to see the mountain of chips in front of him. It took Gross several minutes to finish stacking his chips.

Day 2 Ends with 45 Final Players; Noon ET Start on Monday

Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

 Day 2 has come to a close at the World Poker Tour Montreal Main Event at the Playground Poker Club and the final 45 players are set for Day 3. Play will begin again at noon ET on Monday when those final players return to vie for one of the six coveted spots at the WPT final table that will guarantee a six-figure payday.

The chip leader at the end of the night is Jeff Gross with 2,422,000. Gross already held 2 million when he played one of the largest pots of the day late in the night to eliminate Josh Kimmel and get a stranglehold on the chip lead.

Other top stacks include Michael McDonald (1,598,000), Jason Koon (1,546,000), and Christian Harder (1,472,000). The additional notables that have made a deep run in the event are Gavin Smith, Amanda Musumeci, Bruce Buffer, Ashton Griffin, and Timothy Adams.

It was a very fast day when you consider that there were 360 players that began Day 2. The only real slowdown in play came right before the money bubble, when 118 players remained and hand-for-hand play lasted a little less than 20 minutes. Check out the chip counts tab to see which players busted in the money from places 117 to 46 throughout the day.

We reached 45 players just after 1 a.m. ET and that brought the tournament day to close. Day 3 is truly right around the corner so tune back in at noon ET for all of the action in live updates, chip counts, photos, and videos from the WPT Live Updates team.

Jeff Gross Crushing

Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Josh Kimmel raises to 46,000 preflop from the hi-jack and Jeff Gross reraises to 105,000 on the button. Kimmel thinks for a minute and moves all in for 347,000 more. Gross calls after a few moments and they flip over their cards in one of the largest pots of the tournament:

Gross: AdiamondQspade
Kimmel: AheartJspade

Board: 7spade5club4diamond5heart9spade

Kimmel is eliminated on the hand and Gross is a massive chip leader with close to 2.5 million.

Garen Galanti Eliminated

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

After a flop of 8heart6heart4spade and more than 150,000 already in the pot, Garen Galanti moves all in from the big blind for about 89,000. His opponent (UTG) tanks for a while before he calls with AheartKspade for two overcards. Galanti turns over Kheart9heart for a flush draw.

The ace high is ahead, and Galanti needs to catch a nine, a heart, or a runner-runner straight to stay alive.

The turn is the Aspade, the river is the Qspade, and the UTG players wins the pot with a pair of aces to eliminate Garen Galanti from the tournament in roughtly 64th place.
