Team 888poker Captain Shane Warne
started the day with a healthy stack of 72,400 and Sam Holden begun
the day with 62950 chips in front of him - well above the starting stacks of 30,000.
However, the chip counts for both Ambassadors changed drastically during the very first level of Day 2 on the Main Event - both electing to get into the thick of things and finding themselves in an all-in situation prior to the first break.
Sam Holden's first major pot started with a limp UTG by a lady and a 21BB shove from the HJ by another player. Holding a pair of Jacks, Sam elected to go all in for 51BB and got called by the limper, holding Ace King suited.
Sam manged to win the flip versus AKs and took the side pot.
While collecting his chips, Sam found himself all-in again, this time holding a pair of Kings versus his opponents AK suited. The Kings held, sending the player with AKs home.
Perhaps it was Sam Holden's hyper-aggressive image, but his next all-in occured when Sam squeezed on top of a raise with a pair of Jacks, and was shoved on with A7s. Sam called and his pocket pair held again!
Sam managed to accumulate over 125,000 chips going into the first break of the day, more than doubling his starting stack!Shane Warne
has been playing aggressively as well, and soon found himself in a massive pot, holding Ace King of clubs, versus a pair of Queens. The ace came on the flop and the thinly drawing Queens failed to improve on the turn and river.
Shane begins level 2 of Day 2 of the WSOP with an impressive stack of over 125,000 chips!
