BC’s Shawn Buchanan has 533,000 chips, near the middle of the pack, as 19 players battle for the 12 paying spots in the ten-game mix.

WSOP Event #45 $1.5K NLHE Day 2

Tyler Patterson (WA) is among the 24 remaining for Day 3 of this event that drew 1,655 entries. He’ll be mixing it up with Irish pro and ultra-marathon runner Dara O’Kearney and chip leader Jason Koon at his table. Three PNW players cashed Day 2 with three others falling short of the money. OR’s Christopher Brewer was one of the subjects of an epic write-up of a hand where another player certainly appeared to be trying an angle.
