Other players returning with big stacks include Brian Yoon, Matt Valeo, Nathan Gamble, and Aditya Prasetyo.
Daniel Negreanu will return with one of the smaller stacks and will look for an opportunity to spin it up early on Day 2. Phil Hellmuth registered late in the evening, but still bagged just over 100K chips and will return to take his shot at bracelet 17.
Levels will increase to 90-minutes on Day 2 and blinds will start at 2,000/4,000 with limits at 4,000/8,000. Day 2 will play for seven levels with a 60-minute dinner break after Level 14.
