John Ypma is presently leading the way with 6,660,000. Ypma was already in the top three stacks when he came back to the field this morning with exactly 100 big blind and continued to build. He is currently scoring his first live WSOP event with this event and his biggest live cash.

He is closely followed by John Ciccarelli (6,635,000) and Mike Vanier (6,085,000), who will try to surpass his best result when he finished in fifth place of the 2019 $3,200 WSOP.com ONLINE No-Limit Hold'em High Roller. They are the first three players to cross six million in chips

Ypma is joined by a couple of big names: famous online crusher Jonathan "apestyles" Van Fleet (4,100,000), four-time WSOP winner Jeremy Ausmus (2,900,000), Craig McCorkell (2,430,000) and Canadian Samuel Gagnon (3,600,000). Ausmus had a comfortable stack to start the day, and although he suffered a setback or two, his stack steadily trended upward throughout the ten levels of Day 2 play.

Richard Dixon, who final tabled this same event last year to finish in fifth place for $68,604, bagged 2,000,000 in chips and will try his best for a back-to-back final table appearance.

It didn't take long for chips to start flying around once Day 2 action had begun. Several notable names hit the rail early, including two-time bracelet winner Chris Moorman (540th - $1,051), Scott Margereson (457th - $1,201), Kelly Minkin (436th - $1,293), Brett Apter (415th - $1,293), Alejandro ‘PapoMC’ Lococo (409th - $1,293) and Nacho Barbero (405th - $1,293).

Action resumes on June 29 at Level 28, blinds 50,000/ 100,000 with a 100,000 when the remaining 60 players will continue their quest for the gold. There will be a 15-minute break every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after level 33 (around 6:30 p.m.).
