Only 68 players remain after Day 2 of the WPT Borgata Poker Open.
Leading the way is Thayer Rasmussen, stacked at 904,500. He’s followed by Ryan Young with 837,700.
"Some" might be thinking to themselves right now, "Damn, Thayer totally kicked ass today. Dare I say that his play was even…bold? He should probably get a year’s supply of almonds for himself for that kind of effort." While "some" might say that, "others" apparently don’t agree.
Instead, poker tourney cashing machine Michael Binger, one of the few people on the circuit who definitely can afford something like a year’s supply of delicious almonds, won the Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Player of the Day. Binger ended the day stacked at 521,800, and claims (in the below vid) that winning this year’s supply of delicious almonds was his life-long goal. Doesn’t make life any easier for Thayer Rasmussen though. According to sources, upon hearing that he didn’t win the Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Player of the Day, Rasmussen said*, "Who do I have to blow around here to win the Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Player of the Day? I want some delicious almonds! They’re delicious!"**
Other notable big stacks include Dan Heimiller, a ginger (509,900), Jonathan Little (453,500), Ted Forrest (380,600), Brandon Cantu (377,000), Mark Seif (373,800), Nick Schulman (282,000), Tiffany Michelle (265,400), Robert Mizrachi (262,500), Delicious Almonds (258,000) Steve Dannenmann (250,600), and Joe Sebok (145,200).
