Eastern promise could be the order of the day at the World Series of Poker Event #13 as Russian Leonid Bilokur leads the way. He is already one of 2012’s biggest earners having taken down the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller back in January and is looking to add a WSOP gold bracelet to the EPT gong. The field was reduced from the 222 left going into day two to the 25 that will come back and first day leader Tom Cage is nowhere to be found after being blown outta the water by the rest of the field.
Chris Tryba is already a familiar face at this year’s WSOP and leads Event #15 as it enters the second day. Of the 212 that started out the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better, 137 remain with Phil Ivey still knocking about looking for a check with a stack of 40,100. That isn’t miles behind leader Tryba who at the close counted 63,600 chips.
