PNW Poker Players: 2019 WSOP Main Event Day 2AB

There were 3,248 players coming into Day 2AB from Days 1A and 1B, with another 100 or so electing to late-register before the start of play. Out of that, 1,087 players remain. If you were watching ESPN/PokerGO coverage for the day, it was pretty much the Jacki Burkhart show, as her table featuring Chris Moneymaker was the main feature table for the day, Moneymaker didn’t bust (despite being at risk a number of times), so it stayed that way, and her commanding lead at the table and personality got her a lot of love from the hosts.

She led a discussion about “keeping the band [at][the][feature][table “” not found /]
together”, which it did for a surprisingly long time, though people started to drop as the night went on. There was ample Oregon rep at the table, with Jacki, Andrew Seidman (still listed from Portland on the reports though Jacki told me he now lives in the Bay Area), And there’s Josh, dealing!

It should be a very happy birthday for her.

Day 2AB survivors include 8 Oregon players, 14 Washington players, and 2 from Idaho.
