Ramsey Belmaaza is already booked into Day 2 of the Quantum and is off a quick start in today's flight. He qualified in Day 1b and is mainly looking for the cash today.

He said he hoped his stack didn't get too big because he would have to forfeit it. If his stack somehow matches his previous stack, he will take the best stack forward. He also will receive $1,400 for forfeiting his other stack on top of the min cash for today.
