Day 2 of the PokerStars WCOOP-10-M: $1,050 NLHE Super Tuesday is set to resume play at 7:05 p.m. CEST with 122 players out of 957 entries returning to battle for a share of the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. Three of them will be turned away without a min-cash of $2,356 though while the winner at the end of the day will walk away with that first-place prize of $164,398.

Coming back with the chip lead is Poland's "gardze_wami" with 3,111,742 in chips. They are followed by "alexfull13" (3,027,673), Marc "14alonso14" Macdonnell (2,547,228), Yuri "theNERDguy" Dzivielevski (2,361,774), "pokersenlin" (2,298,563).

But there are still many familiar names in the running like for example Jon "apestyles" Van Fleet, Marc "Rowniwn" Radgen, Maxime "Daghemuneguu" Chilaud, Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves, Pieter "XMorphineX" Aerts, Francisco "Tomatee" Benitez, Jonathan "Corback_fr" Therme, Steven "SvZff" van Zadelhoff, and Preben "prebz" Stokkan.

But players like Fabiano "Kovalski1" Kovalski, Andrey "ThePateychuk" Pateychuk, Pedro "pvigar" Garagnani, Ezequiel "eze88888" Waigel, Cristian "Progre69" Sampaoli, and Gianluca "Tankanza" Speranza have got some work ahead up them as they ended Day 1 in the lower part of the chip count leader board.

When the players return, they will finish the remainder of Level 21 which features a small blind of 10,000, a big blind of 20,000, and a running ante of 2,500. The level duration looks to remain at 20 minutes throughout the tournament with play continuing until a new WCOOP champion can be crowned.

PokerNews will be on hand to bring you all the updates live right here so stick around so see who can claim that shiny Super Tuesday title.
