WSOP Event #29: PokerStars' Stars Make Day 2

As it turns out, the event I was calling Event #28 all day Wednesday is actually Event #29. Go figure. It's an easy mistake, I suppose. I mean, 28 and 29, they could almost be brothers. Regardless, PokerStars once again has players in Day 2 and they are names you will certainly recognize.

2005 Word Series of Poker champion Joe Hachem, PokerStars superstar Spiro "55lucky55" Mitrokostas, and Alex Brenes have all made it to the top 40 and the money of the $2,500 PL Hold'em event.

Going into Day 2 on Thursday here's how the player's stack up against the rest of the field:

Joe Hachem: 28th in chips at 21,900
Spiro Mirtrokostas: 30th in chips at 19,900
Alex Brenes: 34th in chips at 16,200


Play resumes at 3pm Thursday afternoon. Here's to hoping our men can double through early and make a run for the final table.
