Second Day of the WPT World Poker Event

On November 10th, 2007, it was the usual case of the new generation versus the old generation on the second day of the world poker tour World Poker Finals held at the Foxwoods casino as the rising stars of the game go head to head with top pros in the leader board. Online poker pro Matt "mattg1983" Graham was the leader at the end of the day with 587,300 in total chips but Freddy Deeb was not far behind with 451,900 in total chips.

They were followed closely behind by Tom "durrr" Dwan with 387,800 in total chips, Victor Ramdin with 316,000 in total chips and Nick Schulman with 307,900 in total chips. With about 575 in total players divided over two initial days, the playing fields were combined on the second day with 366 participants.

Matt Graham managed to grab the top spot by amassing 450,000 chips before everyone had even reached the 225,000 chip mark. With a lot of players trying to reach a good position early in the tournament it was the first day chip leader Teddy Adalis that would be first to break the norm after forfeiting his 200,000 chip lead.

He had made an early exit after a lot of failed opportunities. As a lot of young poker players like Graham, Dwan and Season IV World Poker Tour World Poker Finals Champion Schulman slowly climbed their up to the board, poker pros like Deeb, Cernuto and Cloutier proved that experience is still the key in important poker tournaments.

World Poker Tour, three time WPT final table participant and Season IV Aruba champion Freddy Deeb spent the day on putting the pressure on his opponents. Deeb ended the day with 451,000 in total chips after knocking out Kyle "kwob20" Bowker. Deeb is aiming to have a re-matched with Schulman, who defeated him in Season V's Battle of the Champions.

Barely old enough to participate in a land-based poker event in the United States, Schulman debuted in the circuit in 2005 as the youngest poker pro to win a WPT title, taking home $2.14 million. Foxwoods regular Frankie Flowers managed to finish in the top five for the day with 393,00 in total chips. Tom "durr" Dwan ended the first day with 134,500 in total chips and he was able to improve to 387,000 in total chips after day two.
