2011 World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic Day 2: Grant Lang on Lead

As the day 2 of the 2011 WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic passed by, the total field of 413 players who registered for the event was further reduced to 148. Right at the top of the chip count is Grant Lang, having scored a total of 382k chips by the end of the day.

The Eliminations

There were quite a number of notables who entered the tournament via the late registration including Phil Hellmuth, Ben Lamb, Jason Mercier, Eli Elezra, and of course, Doyle Brunson. Unfortunately for Ben Lamb, he tried out his pocket K’s against his opponent’s pocket A’s and was eliminated for it. Other notables who were eliminated during the day also include Daniel Negreanu, Hoyt Corkins, Faraz Jaka, Gavin Smith, Barry Greenstein, Todd Brunson, Jeff Schulman, Jennifer Tilly, and Brandon Cantu.

Switching Leads

Of course, as mentioned earlier, Grant Lang will be leading the rest of the players on to the next day. Lang was able to build his stack up when he went against the starting chip leader, Vanessa Selbst, just as the day was about to end.

A Battle of Quads

Another player who has done well during the day was Scott Clements. One of his notable moves was when he went against Chris Klodnicki while two other players folded. Clements had 9-10 with him and Klodnicki had pocket 8’s. The board read 9, 9 and 8 during the flop, which gave Clements a trip 9 while Klodnicki already got a full house with him. When the turn came, it even gave Klodnicki a pretty good improvement, as the turn was then revealed to be an 8, which gave Klodnicki a quad of 8’s. The river however, was revealed to be a 9, which also gave Clements a quad, but the fact that his was superior to Klodnicki’s, Clements was able to bag a pretty sizeable amount as soon as they revealed their cards.

The Chip Count So Far

As the day ended, Grant Lang was able to shoot right up to the top of the list with his 382k chips as his closest competitor on second, Jeff Frerichs, settles in with 342k. On third is Scott Clements with 330,100 chips in total. Right on the fourth spot is Soin Nguyen, having a total of 329,800 chips. Right on the fifth spot is Jean Gaspard, with 296,200 chips, closely followed by Keith Ferrera, with 295,800. On seventh is James Dempsey with his 288,300 chips who is closely followed by Matt Glantz, having a total chip count of 287k. On the ninth spot is Rudy Maarek, with 271,600 in total and right on the tenth spot is Brent Roberts, with 255k.
