198 players came back for Day 2 of Event #24, and they all had a bit of weight lifted off of their shoulders, as they knew they were in the money. As a result, we saw a flurry of bustouts that never slowed down throughout the day, as after ten levels of play, we had only 17 survivors. Leading the way is Salvatore Dicarlo (984,000), who doubled up into the chip lead on the final hand of the night.
Some of the notables who left us early on in the day included Jimmy Fricke (185th), AP Phahurat (166th), Tim Adams (126th), Brynn Kenney (115th), Sorel Mizzi (108th), and Darryll Fish (107th). Further up the final board, we lost Daniel Idema (47th), Paul Wasicka (31st), Shannon Shorr (30th), Sam Stein (23rd), and Victor Ramdin (22nd), and Kevin MacPhee (18th), who busted with 15 minutes left on the clock.
Despite losing this all-star list of players, we still have a couple notables who will come back to compete for the gold bracelet tomorrow. These players are Paul Splitzberg (957,000), Mohsin Charania (940,000), Zimnan Ziyard (461,000), Jacob Schindler (269,000), and Travell Thomas (254,000).
The 17 players have bagged and tagged for the night, and they will return tomorrow at 1 PM to battle it out for the title. As always, we will have the live coverage of the final day, including hand-for-hand updates from the final table. We hope to see you then, and good night from the desert!
