Ronnie PeaseA six-figure pay day of $113,435 is up for grabs as the Card Player Poker Tour Foxwoods $1,650 No-Limit Hold’em $300,000 Guarantee Main Event heads into its final day.

After 11 levels of play the final 13 players bagged up their chips for the night and Ronnie Pease was in the lead with 1.56 million. The chiplead position is nothing new to Pease – he also finished Day 1A with a massive chiplead over the 22 players who advanced.

Day 1B chipleader Brad St. Vincent is still alive and well, finishing the day third in chips with 979,000. Perhaps the most recognizable name still in the field, 2012 World Series of Poker bracelet winner Chris Tryba, bagged up 438,000 at the end of the night.

Day 2 began with 106 runners and action moved along quickly, seeing more than half the field eliminated in the first four levels of play. Once the money bubble approached, play slowed down considerably and saw only a few eliminations for two levels.

The money bubble was burst just before dinner when Mike Vela ran his JDiamond Suit10Diamond Suit into the AClub SuitQDiamond Suit of Mike Jarvela on a ASpade Suit5Spade Suit4Diamond Suit3Club SuitJDiamond Suit board.

Joe Starratt was the first player to take home a piece of the nearly half a million dollar prize pool, being eliminated 36th for $3,858. Soon after Starratt, World Poker Tour champion Anthony Zinno was eliminated. Zinno began Day 2 as one of the shortest stacks in play but managed to hang on long enough to finish in 33rd, adding an additional $3,858 to more than $1 million in live career winnings.

Anthony ZinnoOther notables who made their exits prior to the money included 2012 WSOP National Championship winner Ryan Eriquezzo, Vinny Pahuja, Mike Dentale, 2012 WSOP Main Event seventh place finisher Michael Esposito and Tom Dobrilovic.

Chris Leong, who cashed his way into the CPPT leaderboard by winning Event 1: $600 No-Limit Hold’em $100,000 Guarantee for $42,149, cashing out for 52nd and $602 in Event 4: $300 No-Limit Hold’em $75,000 Guarantee and taking third in Event 7: $400 No-Limit Hold’em $75,000 Guarantee for $11,763, also made his exit before the money but seemed not to be too upset by it.

Leong Tweeted “Busted…. guess it was ridic to think I could cash in first 4 tourneys of the year lol.”

Leong currently sits in fourth on the CPPT leaderboard for money won on the season with $54,514. As of now he also holds the record for most money won on the season without cashing in a main event.

Play will resume Monday at 12pm EST with full live updates on cardplayer.com. Once a final table is reached the live stream and commentary will begin.
