Andy SantiagoAndy Santiago Leads Heading Into Day 3

Day 2 has come to a close here in the WPTDS Big Stax XV Main Event. 172 players returned at the start of the day, with the eventual 62 finishing in the money. David Stefanski was the unfortunate bubble boy when he ran hisĀ X QX Q into theĀ X KX K of his opponent on the very first hand of hand for hand play.

After Stefanski’s elimination the remaining 62 players all locked up $3,534, but everyone was eyeing the top prize of $202,944. Plenty of notables made the money, with most of them falling short of a bag, including Tristan Wade, Kevin Grabel, Bobby Oboodi, Brandon Cantu, Jared Jaffee, Kane Kalas, Brian Lee, Greg Fishberg, and Justin Liberto.
