All 135 players are now getting at least a $1,397 payday on top of whatever bounties they have already accumulated. But all players will be looking to take down this event for the $97,526 first-place prize and bragging rights. The eventual winner will also be the only player to retain their bounty, adding another level of stress to the heads-up match.
Day 2 will start Tuesday, September 22 at 1:05 ET. The blinds will remain at 20 minutes in length, with all players getting a five-minute break 55 minutes past every hour. The day will not end until a winner has been crowned, taking down the title and all of that cold hard cash.
