Alex Foxen

The $10,000 buy-in, $10,000,000 GTD Wynn Millionss continued on Monday with Day 2ab action, which saw 240 players return to play. After five 90-minute levels, the field was whittled down to 76 players with Dominique Mosley and his stack of 933,000 leading the way.

Not far behind with 797,000 is Ukranian star Pavlo Veksler, followed by none other than poker pro Alex Foxen with 787,000 (lead photo), who held the chip lead most of the day until late in the last level of the night.

The tournament, which attracted 1,328 entrants over a trio of starting flights, is offering up a $12,483,200 prize pool to the top 134 finishers. A min-cash being worth $25,091 while the eventual winner will walk away with a $2,018,866 first-place prize and the runner-up receiving a $1,248,886 consolation prize.

The bubble will burst on Wednesday’s Day 3, but before that, day 2c needs to play out on Tuesday.

Without question, the hand of the day was a brutal cooler involving start-of-the-day chip leader Bryn Kenney and Foxen. You can read about that hand in full in this standalone PokerNews article, but suffice it to say it an instant Wynn Millions classic.

Others to bow out on Day 2ab were Sean Perry, Faraz Jaka, Jason Somerville, Joseph Cheong, Vanessa Kade, Brian Altman, David Peters, Ali Imsirovic, Shaun Deeb, Tony Dunst, Nick Schulman, and former WSOP champs Scott Baumstein, Joe McKeehen, Damian Salas, and Joe Cada.

The 2009 WSOP Main Event champ bowed out in the penultimate level of the night when he three-bet all in from the small blind holding pocket jacks. The initial raiser, Kuether, called with king-eight and promptly spiked a king on the flop to end the run of the four-time bracelet winner.
