In what feels like the slowest moving tournament of the decade, Day 2 wrapped at the WPT Foxwoods Poker Classic with 75 still remaining (219 started today, 346 the day before).
Paul Snead ended the day as chip leader, stacked at 472,700. He’s followed by Day 1 chip leader and last year’s winner, Raj Patel, with 393,700. Like Raj, Snead has turned Foxwoods into his personal ATM machine, with a $100k+ cash there in December of ’07.
Of people you’ve actually heard of before, Ted Forrest is fourth overall with 339,100. Joe Tehan, whose name sounds too much like "Tehran" for our liking is stacked at 287,300. Glum Girl Svetlana Gromenkova has 243,200. Paul Darden, who is still alive, is sitting with 175,200. Kathy Liebert, a woman, brings 138,300 to Day 3. Aaaaaand Barry Greenstein (135,600), Erik Seidel (104,100), Erick Lindgren (93,500), Nam Le (56,200), and John Juanda (48,400) still remain.
In unrelated news, damn you HBO for running Lucky You this month. What a POS that movie is. Time has more drama than that flick. Can you sue a movie for sucking two hours out of your life?
