Day 2 of the U.S. Poker Open $50K Main Event Live on PokerGO

The final event of the U.S. Poker Open is live on PokerGO, with feature table action of the $50,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event. The PokerGO broadcast will pick up the Day 2 action with ten players remaining, with the field split between two tables. Some of the field’s biggest names, including Daniel Negreanu, Dan Smith, and Tom Marchese will compete on the feature table.

Negreanu has already been featured a few times during the USPO, thanks to two final table appearances, but Smith and Marchese will both make their series debuts today. The last time Marchese was featured on PokerGO, he took down an ARIA High Roller Series event, but there is much more up for grabs today.

The USPO $50,000 Main Event will pay five spots, with $660,000 up top, and the bubble will burst today. That means that players will have to spend the rest of Day 2 trying to make the final table, but also positioning themselves to make the money.

As it stands, the feature table is the shorter of the two remaining groups. The top three stacks, which belong to Jake Schindler, Keith Tilston, and Brian Rast, won’t begin the broadcast on PokerGO. They’ll battle off set, which means Ben Tollerene will enter the PokerGO live stream with the biggest stack at the feature table.

Tollerene won the second $10,000 High Roller earlier this week and could be poised to add another USPO title to his lengthy High Roller resume.

The U.S. Poker Open has streamed every day this week and Day 2 of the $50,000 Main Event is now live. A list of the feature table players and their chip counts is provided below:

Ben Tollerene – 497,000
Tom Marchese – 413,000
Daniel Negreanu – 409,000
Dan Smith – 327,000
Cary Katz – 96,000

The Day 2 broadcast schedule originally called for the field to play down to the final seven, but a few factors could alter those plans. Follow PokerGO for USPO updates and subscribe now to watch the world’s best players compete in the U.S. Poker Open on PokerGO.
