Another full day of action has played to its conclusion in the Mid-States Poker Tour (MSPT) Venetian $1,100 Main Event. The second of three flights drew 405 entries, bringing the two-day total thus far to 790.

Of those 405 entries, 42 players remained when chips went into bags, and Jason Bral found himself atop the counts with a whopping 757,000.

He was the only player above 700,000 while WSOP bracelet winner Ethan "Rampage Poker" Yau (521,000), and Thomas Eychenne (512,000) were the only other players to make 500,000.

The top five is rounded out by the only other players to make it over 400,000 as Marko Doljevic bagged 457,000 while Nemanja Tatar ended with 401,000.

Much like Day 1a, the final level of the night saw an onslaught of casualties with chips flying all across the remaining tables that led to a lot of players riding roller coasters with their stack sizes.

Several other well-known players to the poker scene will also be joining the aforementioned five. Ken Baime (330,000), Jose Reyes (328,000), WSOP bracelet winner Brett Apter (198,000) and Kevin Garosshen (197,000) are just a few more of the players to add their names to the Day 2 roster along with the 46 to have already advanced from Day 1a.

Among those not as lucky at the felt included Kyna England, MSPT Hall of Famer Jason Seitz, Vinny Pahuja, Ian Matakis, and Andrew Rubinberg, with at least a few if not all of them likely to be seen back in action for tomorrow's final flight.

PokerNews will be back tomorrow to bring you updates on the final flight from start to finish. Until then, take care.
