Main Event of the WSOPE 2010 - Day 2

The 2010 WSOPE main event is started since September 23. In 2007 and 2008, 362 players were registered; in 2009, we had seen a decline to 334 participants, but this year, 346 players were squarely: so it's the only time since the beginning of European world series of poker that there is an increase in terms of participants for the main event.

Among these 346 players, several members of PokerCollectif there are register. Among other things, could find Jonathan 'PokerJohn' Duhamel, Pascal 'Pass72' LeFrançois, Yann 'Yadio' Dion, Rudy 'Rudyboy_x' Blondeau. You could also find Quebecers Erik Cajelais, Isabelle 'NoMercy' Mercier and the french Arnaud 'FrenchKiss' Mattern, Ludovic 'SirCuts' Lacay and many others.


Matchday 1 a and 1 b, everything happened for the best for pretty much everyone, with the exception of Jonathan Duhamel who was eliminated on day 1 is trying a squeeze play with 75 s while the original raiser had ACEs. Pascal Lefrancois was one of the rankings on day 1A, and Yann Dion unfortunately lost a big pot just before the end of the day, thereby reducing his stack of 110 k 55 k.

Day 2 was more difficult for our Quebec: Pascal Lefrancois was eliminated earlier in the day and the fate was the same for Isabelle Mercier and french David Benyamine.
