411 On The 41st (WSOP): Morrison Rides The Storm To The Top Of Players Championship Leader Board
May 30, 2022
After an intense second day of mixed game play, Kirk Morrison, found himself atop the list of 54 surviving players at Event #2 of the 41st Annual World Series of Poker- the $50,000 buy-in Poker Players Championship.

Morrison, perhaps most well known for his runner-up finish worth more than $2 Million in the 2007 WPT Five Star World Poker Classic, is one of two players currently sitting on a stack worth more than 700,000 in tournament chips- the second being Andy Bloch- and is now in a good position to if not win the $1.5 Million top prize, at least cash in this extremely difficult event when the money bubble finally pops all over 17th place.

Other notable survivors from Day 2 of Event #2 include Nick Schulman (683,000), Chris Ferguson (430,000), Doyle “Texas Dolly” Brunson (350,000), John Juanda (396,000), both Mizrachi brothers (Robert (625,000) and Michael (439,000)) as well as PokerRoad’s own Barry Greenstein, coming up the rear with a somewhat desperate stack of 32,600.

Greenstein, certainly has some work to do when Day 3 play resumes at 3 p.m. Vegas Time, but at least he has the opportunity, numerous top players including Hoyt Corkins, Ted Forrest, Jennifer Harman, Howard Lederer and Phil Hellmuth, all were eliminated during the second day and are now forced to move on to one of the other 54 events that have not yet started, if they’re to score a bracelet at this year’s Series.
