2009 WSOP

With the conclusion of Day 2b of the 2009 World Series of Poker, a few more big names were leaving early:  Most notably our friend Vanessa Rousso and Howard Lederer.  They joined Erick Lindgren, Shannon Shorr, Victor Ramdin, Scotty Nguyen among others who bid farewell to the 2009 WSOP. 

Rousso summed things up on her Twitter page:

"Out. Today has not been a good day for poker. And to top it off, my family left to go back to Florida... I always miss them so much :("

Howard Lederer had this to say:

"I'm out. Nothing much went my way today. Got up to 75 early, and then my stack dribbled away, 5 and 10 at a time."

Among those who will be coming back for Day 3, though, we have such luminaries as Phil Ivey, ElkY, David Benyamine, Justin Bonomo and Dan Harrington. In addition, Day 1d chip leader Troy Weber seems to have maintained his status as leader of the pack. There will be a one-day rest break for everyone to psyche themselves up so no play on Thursday.
