2011 WSOP Main Event Day 2A: Aleksandr Mozhnyakov Leads

Doug Polk (right foreground) finished Day 2A just shy of 100,000 chips.

NOTE: For a full Day 2A recap, go here.

2011 WSOP Main Event Day 2A started with 2,031 and lost over half the field, as 822 survived.

Russian Aleksandr Mozhnyakov ended play as big stack with 478,600. He’s followed by Tuan Vo with 434,500.

One of the more interesting stories was the “tale of two empty seats.” First, Phil Hellmuth saw almost half of his stack blinded off before arriving. Hellmuth thought he was playing Day 2B. However, he kept the emotions in check and surged up to over 64,000 chips by the end of the day. On the other end of the spectrum, Carter Gill watched his entire 55k+ stack blinded off. Gill, known for drunken belligerence, was banned from Caesars properties on Sunday and wasn’t allowed to play on Monday.
