The fist level of Day 2 was kind to a few players, who have already moved the stack they pulled out of the bag up the leaderboard and into title contention.
One of the few non-professionals in the High Roller field, Scott Eskenazi is holding his own. Eskenazi bagged 111,900 and is playing almost double that amount so far on Day 2. The Seattle-native always makes time to come to Las Vegas each summer and holds a DSE title dating back to 2008. A cash in this event would be Eskanazi’s second in a $10,000 buy-in 2017 as he made the money in the Aussie Millions Main Event.
The deep stacked nature of this tournament is paying dividends so far fo Lander Lijo, who bagged less than the 50,000 starting stack. Lijo has spun that stack up to over 150,000 early on Day 2 and is looking to make his second final table this week after placing fifth in the WSOP Tag Team tournament.
