Defending Champion Eddie Ochana Leads as 27 Remain in Main Event

Event #8 $2,000 Main Event with $1,000,000 guarantee (one $10,000 WSOP seat added)

Following just under seven hours of play, the 99-player restart in the $2,000 Main Event is down to the final 27 and on a one-hour dinner break. Leading the way is none other than the tournament’s defending champion, Eddie Ochana. Ochana claims 1,830,000 chips and holds a slight edge in a two-way duel for the chip lead. Others still alive include Chicago pros Chris Karambinis and Fadi Hamad.

Cards go back in the air following the one-hour break at roughly 7:40 p.m. CT. Each remaining player has locked up $8,333 while the tournament’s champion earns $274,525 and a $10,000 WSOP Main Event seat.

Here’s a look at some of the notable stack followed by a list of the in-the-money finishers thus far:
