Sharman And Corcione Cripple Mostafa To End Day 2

CPPT Main Event (Day 2)
Level 22 (6,000/12,000/2,000)
Total Entrants: 282
Players Remaining: 15
Chip Average: 565,000
Bobby Corcione (Bellingham, MA)
A few minutes ago, Ryan Mostafa held one of the bigger stacks in this Card Player Poker Tour Main Event field, but after back-to-back hands which can only be described as a "disaster" he's now the shortest stack in the field with just five hands remaining in Day 2.

The first hand saw Sharman Olshan move all-in from early position and Mostafa would call and be an 80% favorite to score the knockout and move himself up and over the 1,000,000 chip mark as he held [Ad][Ah] to Sharman's [Qd][Qc].

Sharman would stand from the table after the [10d][Jd][6c] flop, but the [Qs] would save her tournament life on the turn and she'd hold through the river to complete the double.

Mostafa couldn't believe it and one the very next hand he'd be left dumbfounded again as he opened from middle position and would call the all-in shove of Bobby Corcione, holding [10c][10d] to Corcione's [Qh][Qd].

The pocket Queens would win again and after being on the verge of ending this Day 2 session with over one million chips, Mostafa is now looking to bag anything he can as he's well under a 10 big blind stack.

Sharman and Corcione on the other hand are both on either side of the average, with Sharman playing 400,000 and Corcione sitting one just under 650,000.

We've hit the 10 minute mark in Level 22, meaning we are going to play 5 more hands before the end of Day 2 after which the players will bag and tag their chips for tomorrow's third and final day.
