2018 WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open Main Event Day 2: Ben Yu Leads Tight Leaderboard

The World Poker Tour is in Florida this week as the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open Main Event is underway at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood. Day 2 is already in the books (there were two Day 1 flights) with Ben Yu going into Monday’s action as the chip leader with 1.382 million chips. A total of 911 entries were paid during the two starting flights, bringing the prize pool for the $ 3,300 + $ 200 event to $ 2.915 million. Payouts go down to 114th place and the eventual winner will cash for more than half a million dollars. There are just 53 players remaining after Day 2, so everyone still in the tournament has made the money. Yu began yesterday with 103,700 chips, a solid stack for that point in the tournament, but he clearly did some work Sunday, multiplying his stack ten-fold.

WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star Day 1A: Ankush Mandavia Leads Tight Leader Board

It was a long Day 1A at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Bay 101 Shooting Star Monday, as those who made it all the way through had to slog through eleven 60-minute levels. With two hours for dinner and short breaks, that’s thirteen hours centered around poker, not counting however early the players got to the casino. It was a pretty solid turnout for the first starting flight, as 331 players ponied up the $ 7,500; 125 made it to Day 2. Ankush Mandavia is out in front of the pack with 263,700 chips, though he is closely followed by Rep Porter with 249,600, Brian Yoon with 222,500, and Connor Drinan with 222,000.
