The final 15 players are through to Day 2 of the No-Limit Hold em Quantum tournament. Timothy Deering and Alain Louis Levesque both made it for the third time. This means on top of the $400 they collected for making Day 2, they get an additional $1,500 for their forfeited stack. That means that each of them has already cashed the Quantum for $3,800.

Ben Manache and Daniel Le both bagged for the second time and took home $1,900 each. Mike Lafable bagged the biggest stack of the night with 364,800. He was still a bit off the overall chip leader heading into tomorrow's Day 2, [Removed:105] has been the leader since Day 1a when he ended the first of ten flights with 399,100.

Players can still buy-in for Day 2 for $2,200 and get 150,000 chips. So far there are 94 players heading to Day 2.

Charles La Boissonniere and Jason Conforti are in the field with 43 left. Despite being the top of the leaderboard and playing several of the flights, neither of them has earned a seat in Day 2 of the Quantum.

They are the top two of the leaderboard and extended their lead on Joey Boczek, who is currently in third. As the tournament series winds down, a place in Day 2 of the Quantum may prove the difference between winning the $8,000 Tournament Leaderboard Carribean Package and finishing second.
