Day 2ab of the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event has concluded with around 1,100 players remaining from the 2,219 that began on Tuesday. The fields from Days 1a and 1b remained separate.  The two chip leaders are Mickey Craft (608,100 from the 1a flight) and Lawrence Bayley (618,000 from the 1b flight).

"I got paid when I had nice hands basically," said Bayley. "The structure is so amazing and I just look forward to idealizing my stack. I play deep a lot these days, and I just have to keep finding the right spots and make the most out of it."

"You don't run across those hands very often in a tournament," Craft said. "That was awesome. This is my first Main Event and I got hit in the face by the deck."
