It's starting to look like it could be an exceptional day for PokerStars players at the Rio in Las Vegas.
While Daniel Negreanu continues to progress nicely in the six-handed limit final, Angel Guillen, who is playing only his first year of live poker tournaments, has made Team PokerStars' second final table of the day. Our first bracelet of the series is now looking a real possibility.
The Team PokerStars Mexico Pro is second in chips with a little over 1.5 million in the $2,500 No Limit event, which is being played out on the secondary stage area in the corner of the Amazon room.
That's because the main stage is being used for the $2,500 Six-handed Limit final, in which Daniel Negreanu continues to shine. They're down to five players, and Negreanu holds the chip lead:
Daniel Negreanu, Team PokerStars Pro, 888,000
Brock Parker, 655,000
Tommi Horkko, 425,000
Barry Shulman, 415,000
Kevin Hong, 365,000
Out in sixth was Kyle Ray who called all in for his last chips with 9♥T♥ but was unable to catch up with Kevin Hong's K♦9♠, despite the J♠8♥2♦ giving him hope of a straight.
