Day 2 of Event #57: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em has come to an end with Seth Berger topping the final 31 players.

At the beginning of the day 235 players all had eyes of firstly making the money-paying top 81, but as players battle back-and-forth trying to climb the chip leaderboard many notables would fall with the likes of Maria Ho, Taylor Paur, Allen Cunningham, Calvin Anderson, Eugene Katchalov, Dan O'Brien and Mike Watson all finding themselves on the rail.

With dinner break fast approaching, so was the bubble, and although multiple players doubled, play would be paused so that some grub could be consumed. However on return it would only take a few hands before Eros Nastasi committed holding {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} but would be outdrawn by his opponent's {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} to leave the remaining 81 players guaranteed $9,175.

Chips would begin to fly as a multitude of players hit the rail with Tobias Reinkemeier (77th), Dani Stern (72nd), Barry Shulman (63rd), Dominik Nitsche (60th), Eric Baldwin (43rd), Phil Laak (41st) and Jared Hamby (35th) all bounced to the rail before play was called for the night. Of those remaining players it is Seth Berger who topped the counts with an impressive 986,000 however snapping on his heels include Philipp Gruissem (743,000) and Antonio Buonanno (732,000) as the top ten chip counts stack up follows.
