We didn't catch the action, but we do know that Matthew Weber just doubled through David "ODB" Baker. The latter's cards escaped us due to a quick dealer, but we did see Weber held {K-Spades}{8-Clubs} on an {8-Spades}{10-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} board.

Meanwhile, Chris Moorman was eliminated over at Table 2.

"You've Got Two Buttons"

• Tase 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Brian Rast was the last player to arrive at his seat today. As he sat down Allen Kessler said, "Is this your dream that I'm on your left?"

"I'm sure he wasn't dreaming about you," Chris Tryba said from the nearby table.

"You've got two buttons each time, " David "ODB" Baker chimed in as well.

Rast smiled and started stacking his chips.

Day 2 of the WSOP National Championship is slated to begin shortly with 39 returning players. The top ten chip counts is a who's who of both the WSOP POY and WSOPC Leaderboards. Topping them all is Brian Rast who will be returning with 248,000.

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier and Matt Keikoan are close on his heels. WSOPC standouts Drazen Ilich, Aaron Massey and Justin Gardenhire aren't letting the WSOP POY qualifiers run away it.

Notables David “ODB” Baker, Eugene Katchalov, Sam Stein, Fabrice Soulier, Chris Tryba and Chris Moorman, Amanda Musumeci, Ryan Eriquezzo, Chris Conrad, Jamie Kerstetter, Huy Nguyen and Jacob Naquin are all in the field.

The plan is to play down to a televised final table of eight players that will air on ESPN August 7th. Hopefully, ten 60-minute levels will get the job done. Follow all the National Championship live on
