Day 2 Completed
Day 2 of the 2019 Potomac Poker Open Event 8: Large Stack BBA is in the books with Jeremy Carney emerging as the winner of the two-day, 330-entry tournament.
Carney and Justin Arnwine were the two players left standing at the end of the day. The duo amicably agreed upon a near even chop shortly after reaching heads-up play with Carney taking home $19,323 and Arnwine a prize of $18,322, which reflected Carney’s slight chip lead.
Carney is a native of Virginia but originally from New Jersey where he used to play a lot of cash games. Now he plays as much as time allows given his full-time job and family.

Carney began to crush the competition about midway through Day 2 as he eliminated several players and was the beneficiary of some big hands. One of the key ones being when he eliminated Michael Robinson in seventh place after he made a large bet on the turn, inducing Robinson to shove when Carney held pocket aces to best pocket tens. That hand sent Carney to a large stack from which he did not look back holding the chip lead from that point on.
Decked out head to toe in his favorite Hello Kitty gear, Arnwine, a Maryland native who now lives in Boston, entered the day as the overwhelming chip leader, having almost double the amount of his closest competitor. He retained that big chip lead throughout the day, never losing very much. It was only the rise of Carney’s stack that eventually eclipsed his steady stay at the top of the counts.
Action of the Day
The day began with 25 players and was full of breakneck action as there was a steady stream of eliminations throughout with play never slowing for too long. At one point, four players were eliminated within a five-minute stretch featuring preflop all ins and the player with the larger stack winning each time.
Ake Ngamsaard’s elimination in third place came after about five and half hours of play to end the day after the chop was decided in lieu of a heads-up match.
