After a long day of over 12 hours of poker, Day 2 of Event #26: $2,620 No-Limit Hold'em Marathon has come to an end with many players staggering out of the tournament area. It was a fight to keep their eyes open, but 188 players will be back tomorrow in an attempt to make it through another day.

Leading the way after an impressive six levels is David Coleman (pictured left) with 651,200 chips. That equates to over 250 big blinds when the action resumes tomorrow for Day 3. Coleman already has one cash to his name at the 2019 World Series of Poker in Event #19: #1,500 Millionaire Maker for $4,577. The New Jersey native plays a lot of mid-stakes tournament throughout the United States but a deep run in this event could result in largest career cash which currently sits at just over $18,000.

A few other big stacks moving on to Day 3 include Timothy Miles (483,400), Joseph Liberta (386,300), and Stoyan Obreshkov (340,000) who all had profitable days in their own right. The field was littered with notable names at every table who were soaking up the opportunity to play in one of the best structures at the WSOP. Joseph Cheong (289,700), Anatoly Filatov (229,000), Joao Vieira (182,000), along with bracelet winners David Pham (178,000), Adrian Mateos (139,300), Ryan Leng (100,000), and Mohsin Charania (68,900).

Two of the largest pots on the day belonged to Morten Mortensen who won multiple pots worth over 200,000 in chips. The Danish poker pro got value from a big straight early in the day to move among the chip leaders and in the last level of the night, Mortensen claimed another monster pot with a full house against his opponent's overpair. By the end of the day, Mortensen put 435,000 in his bag and will return to a healthy stack tomorrow.

The action got started at around 12 p.m. this afternoon with a little over 500 players returning to the felt. Late registration remained open for two levels today and players continued to filter into the field. The number of entries grew to 1,083 which created a prizepool of $2,553,714 to play for.

The players were busting at a rapid pace for the first half of the day, but with an average stack of around 100 big blinds after the dinner break, the action slowed down. When the action resumes on Day 3, the money bubble won't be far off, with just 163 players earning a payday. A min-cash will be worth $3,928 and the winner will be taking home $477,401 after six days of play.

Unfortunately for some, the day wasn't as successful as others. Marvin Rettenmaier, Kristen Bicknell, Cord Garcia, Ryan Laplante, Martin Jacobson, Alex Foxen, Jamie Gold, Niall Farrell, and defending champion Michael Addamo were among some of those that failed to run up a stack. Unfortunately for Kenny Hallaert, he was able to run up a stack to over 200,000 but saw it all disappear when he flopped a set against his opponent's straight.

The players will return to the felt at 1 p.m. tomorrow for Day 3 with another six levels on the schedule. The levels will remain at 100 minutes throughout with a 15-minute break scheduled after every level. There will also be a 60-minute dinner break after the fourth level of the day. All of the action will take place in the Miranda Room and the PokerNews live reporting team will be here to bring you all the coverage throughout the event.
