Day Two of the WSOP 2016 Final Table – Nguyen Extends Chip Lead

On day two of the WSOP Final Table, Qui Nguyen has extended his lead to nearly 200,000,000 chips. He stayed aggressive winning medium pots and he got one large pot against Ruane, who he eliminated with an ace – jack combination. Nguyen didn’t start off so well though. He doubled up and lost to Ruane with pocket sixes against Ruane’s pocket eights. Nonetheless, he still retained control of the board.
At one point in the tournament, Vayo held the chip lead. He eliminated Ruzicka with a pair of eights against a ace – king combination from Ruzicka who also bluffed.
The remaining three will battle it out for the last of the series. The chip counts of the remaining players are:
Nguyen 197,600,000
Vayo 89,000,000
Josephy 50,000,000
