GGPoker qualifier Motoyoshi Okamura bagged the second highest stack with a total of 3,835,000 chips whilst Nick Yunis is not far behind his 3,190,000 chip stack. Okamura isn't the only GGPoker qualifier remaining, Leonid Yanovski bagged 2,070,000 with both qualifiers looking to capture their first WSOP gold bracelet.
