Day 2 of the Playground 1000 started with 82 players and played 12 action packed levels before bagging for Day 3. In keeping with the trend seen on Day 1 of this event, the players were not shy about putting chips in the middle, leading to nearly half of the Day 2 field being eliminated within the first three hours of play. The pace slowed somewhat in the lead up to the money bubble, but it was dispensed with rather quickly and the action picked right back up where it left off. Things slowed down significantly when the field was down to two tables because the players had lots of big blinds at their disposal and the prospect of the big money at the top of the prize list began to creep into their minds.
The chip leader from this flight, Lily Kornik, better known to Playground regulars as “Big Salami,” kept up her strong Day 1 play and jumped out to an early chip lead. Although some other players had their turn as chip leader during Day 2, Kornik was never far off the lead. After the players reached the money, Kornik jumped back up to the top of the leaderboard and stayed there until the chips went in the bag at the end of level 26.
Play will resume for Day 3 tomorrow at 1:00pm.
