Bling time in SoCal. Who's gonna slide the ring on their finger? The World Series of Poker Circuit headed to the outskirts of Los Angeles for the latest installment of the WSOPC. Yup! The Bike hosted a WSOP Circuit event. The WSOP marketing gurus came up a great gimmick this season: 12 rings in 12 days. The current season featured a series lasting 12 days with 12 different chances to win a Circuit ring.
The WSOP Circuit Main Event at The Bike had a $1,675 price tag. A total of 705 runners took a shot with two opening flights. Only 11 players were left standing at the conclusion of Day 2. Canadian pro Owen Crowe bagged up the most chips with 11 remaining. The infamous ‘ocrowe' has 2.7M. Tom Braband is close by in second with 2.53M and Brett Murray is currently third overall with 1.9M.
Local hero, David "The Dragon" Pham, is still alive. It's gonna take a lot to take out a dragon on his home turf. Pham bagged up 1.9M, which was good for fourth overall.
Day 1B chipleader Kristy Arnett is still alive, but she's among the short stacks still in the hunt for the ring.
First place pays out $216,790. Huge different between ninth place and the champion, so the final table is where all the cheesecake is at!
Also still remaining... Martin Carnero, Kevin Gimble, Adam Swan, Nick Palma, Kristy Arnett, Adam Miller, and super-shortstacked Scott Saunders.
Ben Keeline and D.J. Alexander busted late on Day 2. They both cashed.
Action for the WSOP Circuit Main Event resumes at 1pm local time and they'll play down to a champion.
