Dan Smith leads chips with 6 wins at WPT Big One

On Wednesday, the final table of the Big One for One Drop, a $1 million buy-in World Poker Tour (WPT) event, will feature a seven-figure money bubble that could make a rich man even richer in just one day.
Although Phil Ivey was unable to make it to the second day after being late on the first day, the 14 players who returned to the Wynn Las Vegas for the second day of the three-day tournament were some of the best players in the world. Defeating Ivey’s Dan Smith to take the chip lead. He lost most of his stack, but remained at or near the top for most of the tournament.
When the final table resumes, everyone will be chasing Smith, who holds the chip lead for the second day in a row. According to The Hendon Mob, Smith already has more than $49 million in tournament money. If he wins the $7,114,500 One Drop event, he will move into third place on the all-time list.
On Tuesday, several well-known players came together to pay the $1 million entry fee. These include Fedor Holtz, Stephen Chidwick, Jason Koon and Chris Brewer, who entered day two with the smallest stack.
GGPoker Ambassador Koon was eliminated in 10th place after losing to Nick Petrangelo, who took the chip lead with this hand.
With eight players remaining, Rick Salomon, who doubled twice in a row to stay alive, tried his best to enter the tournament with 9♣9♠, but was met by Nikita Bodyakovsky’s J♠J♦ in the hole. Solomon competed in some of the world’s largest private tournaments, but received no help from the board and withdrew from the tournament. However, after this decisive hand, Badziakouski found himself on top of the stack.
With six games remaining in the second day of the tournament, Adrian Mateos moved all-in with K♠Q♠ with just under 20 big blinds and found himself competing with Smith’s J♠J♣. Unfortunately for Mateos, the board didn’t give him any useful cards and he finished seventh.
Play will end shortly before 10:00 pm PT and will resume on Wednesday. For the second day in a row, Smith had the biggest stack at 4,865,000, about 60 big blinds. Mario Mosboek is in second place with 2,935,000 chips. Petrangelo pulled back after holding the chip lead earlier in the day and finished Day 2 with the smallest stack of 1,445,000.
