Tai Du is being his composure for the time being but his current place of second in chips with 31 players left is enough to be excited out.
Tai Du was the chip leader for part of Day 1B but eventually dropped back toward the pack and bagged 149,000. Du has been chipping up for the entirety of Day 2 and is making a push toward Gil George on the verge of the three table redraw.
Du opened for 24,000 from the hijack and Kerstetter defended her big blind to see a Q♣9♠7♠ flop. The two players checked the flop and the K♥ hit the turn. Kerstetter took the betting lead and put out 30,000.
Du called and the J♥ hit the river. Kerstetter backed off and checked and Du bet 80,000. After thinking about it for a minute, Kerstetter folded and Du took in the pot to stack up to over 700,000. Du is now second in chips and a look at the chip leaders is below.
Gil George - 875,000
Tai Du - 720,000
Jonathan Nguyen - 510,000
Kristen Deardoff - 440,000
Jamie Kerstetter - 425,000
Dan Lowery - 400,000
Pete Petree - 390,000
