Rick Block tops final 6 in the second day of Western New York Poker Challenge

The pack played down from fifty players to only 6 on the second day of the Western New York Poker Challenge 2016 Main Event earlier on Sunday, and Rick Block would begin on top in the fight for the later on Monday.


The twenty-eight player money bubble burst part way via the day when Rick broke through Timothy Andruschat’s kings with an infirm ace and the playdown to an unauthorized final table of ten went rather fast.

By the clock they reached there, Mike “The Mayor” Rellinger got short and fell in tenth. Very soon after that, Jeremy Halaska bowed out in 9th and Jeff Wells gave Block the lead, squeezing 2nd pair into Ricks set of aces to leave in 8th.
