Chip leader Joseph Orsino all smiles to start Day 2

Leading the restart by a margin is Joseph Orsino. Orsino started hot bagging a monster 734,000-chip stack in Thursday’s Flight A. He earned a few days off and returns today as the top stack. The next closest holdings belong to Alex Beece who sits with 566,000.

Day 2 is also littered with Tampa regulars including Marvin Karlins, Anthony Dianaty and Wally Maddah.
