The WSOP Circuit Choctaw Main Event is progressing into Day 2 after the second of the tournament’s two starting flights was completed last night at the host venue. The remaining survivors will resume play today at noon local time and competition will certainly be fierce as they will be striving to secure a place among the paid positions.

The $1,675 Main Event kicked off on Friday at Choctaw Durant with Day 1A. A total of 353 entries registered for the tournament throughout the day, of whom only 61 survived. Day 1B saw even greater interest among players as there were 555 participants who joined the felt. By the time organizers called it a day, there were only 96 players left at the host casino’s poker table.

Overall, the Choctaw Main Event attracted a field of 908 entries and re-entries, who generated a prize pool of $1,362,000. The top 99 finishers will receive a share of the money. This means that the 157 hopefuls who will return for Day 2 of action will burst the bubble at some point throughout the day. Min-cashes are starting from $2,792; each of the nine finalists at the official final table will be guaranteed a payout of $24,952; and last but not least, the winner will receive $258,784 for their triumph and a WSOP Circuit gold ring, of course. The Main Event champion will also lock a seat into the season-ending Global Casino Championship.

Day 2 of play will include 10 levels and those who survive them will return on Monday to play down to a winner.

Dan Lowery Vies for Sixth Gold Ring from the Circuit

Last night, poker pro Daniel Lowery bagged and tagged the largest Day 1B chip stack. And with his 389,000 in chips, the player actually headed the overall chip counts chart to progress into Day 2 as the chip leader.

Here it is interesting to note that he will be looking to improve his Choctaw Durant Main Event finish from 2012 when he took second place in that same tournament, good for $167,230. What is more, Lowery is vying for his sixth gold ring from the WSOP Circuit. The player captured his fifth piece less then two weeks ago. He took down a $365 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em at Harveys Lake Tahoe, emerging as the victor from a field of 174 participants.

Lowery is a regular entry into the WSOP Circuit’s tournament. The player has cashed in 52 Circuit tournaments since 2010 when he grabbed his first payout from the popular poker series. As mentioned earlier, he has also collected five gold rings. Lowery’s winnings from the WSOP Circuit currently amount to $709,583, but the player has excellent chance to improve his bankroll significantly.

Day 2 action resumes at noon local time at Choctaw Casino & Resort Durant in Durant, Oklahoma and Lowery will be leading his fellow competitors into the next action-packed stage of the Main Event.
