The remaining 120 players came back today to try and repeat what they did yesterday; win a sit 'n' go to advance to the next day. They were spread over 12 tables and it took until midnight for all tables to complete. They will advance to the final day tomorrow where they will play down to a winner.

The final 12 will line up on two tables of six until two players are eliminated. From there they will redraw and face-off against each other, and shootout until one player is left standing. Here's how they will line up tomorrow:

4471Justin Schwartz423,000
4472Dylan Horton422,000
4473Jeff Madsen431,000
4474Brandon Schaefer432,000
4475Jarred Solomon426,500
4476Michael Corson432,000
4481Zachary Korik418,000
4482Layne Flack431,000
4483David Chase417,000
4484Jon Cohen431,000
4485Brandon Steven427,000
4486Adam Kagin423,000

Jeff Madsen turned 27-years old today and it looked as if his birthday present was lost in the post as he lined up at the "Table of Death" along with, and out of position to Lauren Kling, Tom Schneider, David "Doc" Sands, Randal Flowers, Joe Cada, and Ben Jenkins. He ran well and said he played some of the best poker he's ever played to give himself the ideal birthday present.

Madsen's key moment came when he knocked out the very dangerous Sands. Sands had just taken a bad beat to get somewhat short and shoved with {q-}{j-}. Madsen looked down and saw pocket pocket aces, called, and took care of Sands.

Other players with high hopes who fell away included: Phil Ivey Erik Seidel, Terrance Chan, Gavin Smith, John Eames, Scott Clements, Davidi Kitai, Melanie Weisner, and Jason Koon.

Once the field has shrunk to 10 players they'll all be shifted from the Amazon room to the Pavillion room where the remaining action will be streamed live on WSOP.com. Play is due to start at 1:00pm local and we implore you to join us as the dynamic of having 12 even stacks will make for exciting viewing.

Cohen Comeback Helps Him Advance

Vanessa Peng had a big advantage heading into her heads-up battle with Jon Cohen but could finish of the job. Cohen dug in and ran well when it mattered. It was hard for him to run much better on the final hand.

Cohen opened to 9,000 and faced a Peng three-bet to 19,000. He shipped all-in and Peng called all-in for 125,000.

Peng: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Cohen: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

The board ran {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to make Cohen quads!
