Day 2 of the Quantum No-Limit Hold em tournament is in the books and Marc-Olivier Carpentier-Perrault leads the way with 2,135,000. He joined 21 other players who are guaranteed at least $1,750 as they come back tomorrow. First prize is $50,000 and will be the second largest first place prize awarded during the World Cup of Cards.

Carpentier-Perrault was rocking a big stack already, but some interesting hands played out to end the night and he parlayed a late bust into the big stack with 22 remaining. He opened a pot and Samuel Chartier (280,000) shoved all in. Chartier was the shorter stack, but the all in would have taken a good chunk out of Carpentier-Perrault's stack. He ended up folding and giving the pot to Chartier. Shortly after that, he three-bet Pascale Monarque and Monarque shoved with ace-ten. Carpentier-Perrault called with pocket jacks. He stayed ahead and sent Monarque home early.

Noeung Troeung (1,865,000), Albert N (1,390,000), Douglas James (1,345,000), David Cadoche (1,230,000), and Reid Fortin (1,170,000) all finished with over 1,000,000. Ramsey Belmaaza, who was the Day 1b chip leader and shot to a big stack earlier in the day, found himself short when the three-table redraw happened. But thanks to some good run outs and his new favorite dealer Belmaaza bagged 880,000.

Ben Manache was the unfortunate bubble when he got all in ahead against Mathieu Leclerc (965,000) and Leclerc flopped better. Senthuran Vijayaratnam (395,000) was very close to being the bubble when he called a bet from Belmaaza that left him with just about 20,000. He would quadruple up the next hand and he is still in moving forward to Day 3.

This was Event #1 on the WCC schedule and Day 3 will start tomorrow at 7 p.m. The Quantum kicked off the WCC back on August 17th and it will close the WCC along with one last Bounty No-Limit Hold em.

Pascal Monarque opened to 110,000 and Marc-Olivier Carpentier-Perrault reraised to 325,000. Monarque shoved all in for about 440,000 more and Carpentier-Perrault called with pocket jacks.

Ben Manache is the Bubble for the Quantum No-Limit Hold Em

[user313639]

Ben Manache is the stone bubble of the Quantum No-Limit Hold em tournament.

Shortly after hand for hand play began, Manache was all in and Mathieu Leclerc called. The players had to wait for the action at the others tables to conclude before they could finish the hand.

At another table, Senthuran Vijayaratnam and Ramsey Belmaaza were heads up after a Belmaaza preflop raise. The board read {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Belmaaza bet 95,000. Vijayaratnam only had 114,000 or so left and he just called, leaving himself chips. He lost the hand when Belmaaza turned over a straight with {10-}{8-}. Vijayaratnam was left short but not out.

Back at the other table, Manache showed {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and was ahead of the {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} of Leclerc. Unfortunately for Manache, the flop came {k-}{j-}{5-} and gave Leclerc two pair. Manache couldn't catch up and busted 42nd on the stone bubble.

Back Vijayaratnam and his 20,000 or so chips. He was all in now that he was in the money with 20,000 against four three other players. The board read {5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs} and Spencer S bet. The remaining players folded, leaving Vijayaratnam and Spencer S heads up. Vijayaratnam had {6-}{4-} for a six-high straight, which was just better than the five-high straight Spencer S made with his {a-}{x-}.

The bubble play was streamed on the PokerNews Facebook live page and you cansee how it played out there.

Ramsey Belmaaza Shoves the Turn

[user313639]

Ramsey Belmaaza and Senthuran Vijayaratnam were heads up on the turn. The board read {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and Belmaaza checked.

Vijayaratnam bet 70,000 and Belmaaza shoved all in, putting Vijayaratnam at risk if he should call. Vijayaratnam took a few moments to decide. Belmaaza just sat. Stone-faced and with a giant pyramid of chips blocking part of his face. Vijayaratnam folded and Belmaaza casually turned over the {a-Hearts} as he collected the pot and returned his cards to the dealer.
