Ден 2 Приключил
Day 2 kicked off with the 203 survivors from Day 1 merging with the 26 runners who used the last minutes of late registration to get involved. After ten levels of play, those 229 have been reduced to just 27, here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, all guaranteed a payday of at least $16,958.
Top of the field sits Andrew Graham with 1,403,000 chips in play. Graham catapulted into the chip lead in the penultimate level of the night when Anthony Spinella called his five-bet shove with pocket jacks but ran into Graham's pocket kings. Graham managed to retain his chip lead for the remainder of the evening.
Eric Blair (1,280,000), Dave Stefanski (1,150,000) and Justin Adams (1,113,000) were the other three who made up the millionaire's club today and who have a chip advantage going into Day 3.

The tournament director has paused the clock with ten minutes remaining and has announced there will be four more hands in the night. While that was happening Yann Brosolo three-bet to 85,000 from the small blind over the top of a Jimmy Guerrero open.
The action was back on Guerrero who four-bet to 200,000. Brosolo thought for a minute but elected to pick a different battle and try to survive the last few hands of the night.
Justin Adams opened to 25,000 from the button and Kacper Pyzara peeled from the big blind.
It was a flop and Pyzara check-raised all-in over Adams' 27,000 continuation. It was a fold from Adams and Pyzara is up to 27 big blinds.
Arthur Morris opened to 24,000 from the cutoff and James Mackey re-raised to 90,000 out of the small blind. Morris made the call and the two went heads-up to a flop of .
Mackey led out for 65,000 and Morris called to see the on the turn. Mackey checked this time and Morris slid in a bet of 110,000. Mackey wasted no time before sending his cards to the muck and Morris raked in the pot.
Andrew Graham relayed a big pot that just took place between himself and Anthony Spinella that resulted in the bracelet winner hitting the rail, whilst propelling Graham into the top spot.
All the money went in preflop and it ended up with Spinella four-bet calling off a five-bet with jacks and running into Graham's pocket kings. The board held for Graham and he now has around 10 percent of the chips in play.
Ugnius Simelionis and Martin Finger got all of the chips in the middle with Simelionis being the player at risk for a little over 100,000. Finger definitely had the preflop advantage and Simelionis was in jeopardy of being eliminated.
The flop came and Simelionis spiked an ace to take the lead. The on the turn and the on the river were no help to Finger as Simelionis earned himself a double up.
Eric Blair has been chipping up steadily and the last pot he was in put him over the 1 million mark. He is the first player to reach that milestone in the tournament.
Just now he was in a big pot against Jean-Robert Bellande. Blair had opened to 18,000 and Bellande three-bet to 51,000.
The flop fell and Bellande continued for 51,000, which Blair called. The turn was a and and Bellande barreled for 103,000, which Blair also called.
The last card out was the and Bellande bet again, this time for 140,000. Blair moved all-in, which covered Bellande who had 137,000 behind. Bellande did not look happy to be in his spot and took his time before folding face up. The scoop made Blair the new chip leader.
