Day 2 of the World Series of Poker Circuit $1,700 Main Event Choctaw Durant starts at noon.

The two starting flights pulled together a total of 983 entries, which was enough to blast by the $1,000,000 guarantee that was set.

A total of 189 players found a bag during the two starting flights and those lucky enough to do so will be returning on Day 2, battling it out for another ten levels of play.

Starting the day with the overall chip lead is Bill Burford who bagged large in Day 1a and he will look to add a deep run to his fairly new poker resume.

Many other familiar faces will be battling it out for a shot at the six-figure top prize and some of which are Tim Burden (320,000), Jake Bazeley (318,500), Charles Johnson (286,500), Eric Salazar (247,000), Andros Ioakimides (196,000), Gregg Merkow (193,000), Nick Pupillo (176,500) and James Pupillo (169,000).

Day 2 Schedule

Play will begin at noon local time with blinds picking back up at level 16 where blinds are 2,000/4,000/4,000. The plan is to play a total of ten 60-minute levels and there will be a 15-minute break between every two. A dinner break will take place at the end of level 21 and all remaining by nights end will bag up for the final day.

There will be 189 players returning for Day 2 action with 148 spots grabbing a piece of the prize pool. Starting the day this close to the money might make for some conservative play, but judging by the first two flights the tournament should retain the action-filled play that has been up to this point. A min-cash will be paying $2,549, but all eyes will be on the $256,915 first-place prize that the eventual champion will be taking home, along with a shiny new gold ring.
