Level 2 has concluded and the players have taken a short (10 minute) break, with Gary Benson the early chip leader with 36k.
Benson is wielding his stack at a six-handed table with three absent players (sitting out the first two rounds), and a spare tenth seat. Unfortunately Team PokerStars Pro Isabelle “No Mercy” Mercier is low on chips after the first two levels and goes to the break with a little over 7000.
