When the action resumes on Day 2 of the $1,650 PCA National, there will be 61 players returning to their seat. After battling for nearly 14 hours on Day 1, the money bubbles is just on the horizon. Among those returning, triple crown winner and former PCA Main Event winner, Harrison Gimbel (189,000), sits among the leaders.

Gimbel won the PCA Main Event back in 2010 for a whopping $2.2 million. He completed his triple crown this past summer by capturing his first WSOP gold bracelet in the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'Em event. Gimbel has over $4.6 million in career tournament earnings and is looking to add to that here in the Bahamas in 2018.

Gimbel will be chasing the likes of Aleksandr Nemtcov who bagged the chip lead with 297,800 chips. Damien Steel (257,500) and Sharman Olshan (225,300) round out the top three with impressive opening days as well.

The money bubble is not far away with 39 players making the money and a min-cash worth $2,900. However, everyone will have their sights set on the first-place prize of $84,600. The winner will also be awarded a Platinum Pass for the $25,000 PSPC being held in 2019.

The action is scheduled to resume at 12:00 P.M. EST with the blinds continuing at 1,000/2,000 and a running ante of 300. There are another 11 levels on tap for the day, which will be 60-minutes in length. There will be a 20-minute break after every two levels and an 80-minute dinner break after the sixth level of the day. The tournament will wrap up on Day 3 where a winner will be crowned.
