WSOP Main Event Day 2 Update - Lisandro, Hachem and Puzz Lead The Aussie Charge

Posted at 08:07 2009-07-11
After the official numbers were locked in at 6,494 starters, just over two thousand of them have survived the carnage to make Day 3 action. With a rest day today, tomorrow they will return to all be in the same room for the very first time.
 
Australia was well represented on Day 2 but many of our notable players struggled to make it through the day. The Day 3 charge will be led by 2009 ANZPT Sydney champ Paren Arzoomanian who has amassed 272,900 in chips to be well placed with nearly three times the average chip stack.
 
Jeff Lisandro has continued his dominant 2009 WSOP campaign to hold 229,300 chips, while 2005 World Champion Joe Hachem is also in good shape with 138,900. Joe’s brother, Tony Hachem had a rough day 2 but is still in contention with 46,900.
 
Others Australians to survive into Day 3 play include spin king Shane Warne (173,700), Tim “luckyshades” Horan (133,400), Daniel Neilson (130,100), Manny Stavropoulos (106,200), Mike Comer (89,400), Jai Kemp (66,800), Bill Jordanou (54,700), Steve Topakas (22,500) and 2009 ANZPT Melbourne champ Chris Levick (20,400).
