On Tuesday, the $10,000 buy-in, $10,000,000 GTD Wynn Millions continued with Day 2c, which saw 246 players return to action. After five 90-minute levels, the field was whittled down to 86 players with Frank Funaro and his stack of 953,000 leading the way.
That is slightly ahead of Day 2ab chip leader Dominique Mosley, who bagged 933,000. Also bagging a stack on the bigger was GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu, who started with 77,500 and worked it all the way up to 612,000.
Along with Day 2ab’s 76 survivors, the 86 surviving players from 2c will turn for Wednesday’s Day 3 as 162 returning players will try to make it through the money bubble. 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 is worth $25,091 while the eventual winner will walk away with a $2,018,866 first-place prize.

Funaro got a good chunk of his stack in the penultimate level of the night when bracelet winner Bryan Piccioli jammed the river with pocket kings on a board double paired with sixes and treys. Funaro had ace-six in his hand and had an easy call to win an over half-million chip pot.
Others to bag stacks on Day 2c were Thomas Boivin (926,000), Dylan Linde (849,000), Bin Weng (788,000), and Ramiro Petrone (782,000), who round out the top five.
They were joined by the likes of Farid Jattin (662,000), Ilyas Muradi (635,000), Matas Cimbolas (518,000), Maria Ho (500,000), Robert Mizrachi (436,000), Tom Marchese (419,000), Ari Engel (286,000), Benny Glaser (208,000), and Poker Hall of Famers John Hennigan (227,000) and Jack McClelland (34,000).
Seidel, Konnikova, Hastings Among Eliminations
Among those to fall over the course of play were Erik Seidel, Matt Stout, Maria Konnikova, Brian Hastings, Blair Hinkle, Camille Brown, Bryan Piccioli, Calvin Anderson, Dorian Rios, Frank Stepuchin, Mike Del Vecchio, Kou Vang, and Johnny Chan.
Chan fell in the first level of the day when Chris O'Hara moved all-in preflop from under the gun for about 38,000, claiming he was doing so blind. It folded to Chan in middle position who moved all-in himself for slightly less with jack-ten. Everyone else folded and O’Hara table ace-eight, which held on a clean runout.
