Irfan Karajic
We are still in the early levels of our third Event 2 flight and one player has distanced himself well out in front of the field. Irfan Karajic is already sitting behind a mountain of 180,000.

"He's 26-1 in hands" said Mike Nye as we walked past the table. "I knocked out 2 or players" joked Karajic who at least for now is the runaway Day 1C Event 2 chip leader.

"The General"

We have just entered the last level of the night and there's a familiar face near the top of the chip counts. "The General" continues to climb and he is has just moved over the 200,000 chip mark.

With less than 30-minutes left in the night "The General" look to continues his upward trend and move on to Day 2.

Mark Scacewater
The Day 1B Event 2 is thinning fast and we are down to just 100 players. They are now on a 15-minute break and plenty of big stacks are starting to emerge. The two biggest stacks in the field just happen to be seated side by side at Table 12.

Mike Tokatlyan
Mark Scacewater and Mike Tokatlyan are both playing nearly identical stacks of about 215,000. We will surely keep an eye on the table as there's plenty of potential for a monster pot if these two massive stacks elect to clash. 

Event 2C $600 NLH: Cards in the Air

The third flight of Event 2 of the Foxwoods Poker World Series of Poker Circuit is just getting underway here in the upstairs tournament area. We have already seen a total of 592 through the first two Event 2 flights and are expecting a big turnout in the final two flights.

This event is the $600 NLH (Re-Entry) WSOPC ring event with a massive $500,000 guarantee. Players will start with 20,000 in non-value tournament chips and tournament registration and re-entry will remain open until the start of level 9.

Forfeiting of your stack to re-enter will be allowed during the level 8 break only. This tournament is NOT a best stack forward event. If you bag chips at the end of any day/flight and then play in subsequent day/flight, your previous day/flight chips will automatically be forfeited.

Levels 1-18 will last 30-minutes and levels 19 and up will be 45-minutes.

There will be a 15-minute break after levels 4,8,12 on Day 1 and Day 2 will resume on Sunday August 19 at 11 A.M. Day 2 there will be a 15-minunte break after levels 19,22,28 and 31 and a 60-minute dinner break after level 25 (approx. 6:15 P.M.).

Event 2B $600 NLH: Planchon Cracks Aces to Survive

Event 2: $600 NLH (Re-Entry)
$500,000 Guaranteed
Level 10: 400/800/800
Day 1B Entries: 332
Day 1B Players Remaining: 155
Kevin Planchon

Kevin Planchon got his stack of his 24,000 all in pre-flop holding K♣️K♥️. It looked like the end of the road for Planchon as he ran into the A♠️A♦️ of a player in late position.

The dealer fanned the Q♥️Q♦️2♦️ flop and it was no help for Planchon. The K♦️ hit the turn and Planchon spiked his two outer improving to kings full of queens to take control of the hand.

The river 6♣️ sealed the deal for Planchon and he cracked his opponents aces to earn the double up and stay alive. 

Kevin Planchon- 50,000
