Many big names were among the 136 PartyPoker players present and correct for Day 2 of the opener. They like Jerry OdeenWSOP Bracelet Winner Ben Dobson, Steven van Zadelhoff, Fabian gum, Martin Mulsowour very own Matthew StaplesAnd João Ferreira all made the money but missed out on the last six spots.
All six finalists called Brazil or Austria their home. Austria Giles Simon finished sixth ahead of Brazil for $4,182 Breno Avelino crashed and took home the fifth prize of $4,007.
The next three victims were all Austrians: Johan Schulz Pedersen, Sonke Jahnand runner-up Thomas Patka fell by the wayside one after the other. They saw prizes of $4,695, $8,433 and $9,568 in their PartyPoker account.
