In under 30 minutes of play, the Day 2 field is only two tables from the money. Chip stacks are starting to grow out in the field and Jonathan Nguyen has picked up right where he left on Day 1A and is playing near the chip lead after taking down a sizable hand against Will O'Connor.
Picking up the action on a flop of J♥5♠2♥, O'Connor bet 16,000 from the small blind into a pot of about 25,000 and Nguyen min-clicked to 32,000. O'Connor tanked for nearly three minutes and called to see the A♣ turn.
O'Connor slowed down to a check and Nguyen bet 16,000. It took O'Connor about two minutes to call this time and the 9♣ hit the river. Both players checked and O'Connor showed 7♥7♦ with Nguyen turning over a better pair A♥8♦. O'Connor let out a few expletives as the pot was shipped over to Nguyen, who is now playing close to 360,000 while O'Connor is down to 10 big blinds.
