Poker is a game that requires adaptability and mastering different variants. For the 10 players who will return tomorrow to crown a champion in Event #23: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix, they'll get a chance to prove they can do it better than anyone.

The man leading the way is Ryan Hughes, no stranger to wearing WSOP gold. Hughes is already a two-time bracelet winner and will take the chip lead into tomorrow with 2,534,000. Right behind him is another multiple bracelet winner in Connor Drinan, who finished the day with 1,990,000. Three other bracelet winners made the top-10: Brett Shaffer (800,000), Ryan Leng (770,000), and Dan Zack (384,000).

For Schuyler Thornton, Tyler Willse, Hunter McClelland, George Alexander, and Brandon Bergin, winning the bracelet tomorrow will be a new experience for them. To get this far, they had to navigate a field of 484 players. Day 2 began with 144 players still in the mix, with the money bubble coming at 73rd place.

Limit Hold'em

On a completed board of {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} David Moskowitz got into a raising war on the river with Ryan Leng and Moskowitz ended up all-in and at risk.

It was Moskowitz that first tabled {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for trip fives, and was subsequently shown the bad news when Leng tabled {8-Spades}{6-Spades} for a rivered flush. With that hand Moskowitz was eliminated in 13th place and Leng is back at 840,000.

Pot Limit Omaha

Connor Drinan raised pre-flop and Michael Mizrachi defended from the big blind. The two players quickly got it all in on the {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades} board, with Mizrachi having 354,000.

Michael Mizrachi: {k-Spades}{6-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Connor Drinan: {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

Drinan had flopped the nut straight, but Mizrachi was still live with his flush draw. The {9-Clubs} turn didn't help him, but the flush came in on the {9-Spades} river to double him up.

"What a setup that flop was," Mizrachi said.
