World Series of Poker Day 2 of the ABC Main Event, starting with 3,865 players and ending with 1,877 eligible players on Day 3, Latin Armada is absolute Champion protagonist. Mostly because of today’s man: Julio Belluccio. After winning the bracelet a few days ago, the Argentine pressed on and finished third, ahead of his Spanish-language opponent in the new round.
Good old Bartolo finished with 825,500 in chips, just behind Arnaud Mattern with 975,000 and Christopher Brammer with 879,000. Now Bellucio will have a day off before he will be ready for Sunday’s only third day in the tournament so far, with all remaining players grouped together.
Kun Aguero has over 100 blinds in chips. He will now rest and play a third day of action on Sunday to enter the bonus.
Far behind Belluscio, although the stack is very good, is Mariano Gondolo, who added 449,000 chips,
Additionally, Leonardo Daviglus, Ramiro Petrone and Karucha Rodriguez
The most notable casualty of the round was the quick exit of José Ignacio Barbero, who had just won the Arie 10K High Roller in the wee hours of the morning. Nacho started with 30 blinds or less and couldn’t find room to double it up. Unfortunately, the race for the best Argentine this season is over.
The Main Event continues this Saturday at 12:00 for Day 2D. There will be plenty of Latin American representatives – all Day 1D qualifiers – trying to advance to the next round on the day the record-breaking tournament’s numbers are announced.
