Jean-Luc Adam (750,000) from France, the reigning champion, continues his defense and remains above chip average.

Carolyn Niekerk (1,463,000) who has been a dealer for the WSOP in years past, was among the chip leaders all day long and remains there heading into Day 3.

Eric Van Der Burg (975,000), from the Netherlands, donned a PokerNews hoodie and ran it up to nearly a million. James Woods (255,000) advanced, but he will have some work to do heading into tomorrow.

Angelita Grayer (560,000), the Day 1 chip leader, remains in the field, she bagged just around the chip average. A few others to bag include Massoud Eskandari (1,860,000), Barny Boatman (1,165,000), Elizabeth Bennett-Martin (1,050,000), Leo Mitchell (1,370,000) and Alfred Ahlm (1,780,000).

Day 3 will consist of ten more 60-minute levels, and there will be 15-minute breaks after every two levels. Play will end after Level 30. With a 60-minute dinner break around 7:00 p.m. local time.

The plan is to play down to the final five players before returning for Day 4, but that is subject to change.

Postnikoff Over One Million After Wild Blind on Blind Battle

Level 20 : 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante
Jarvis Postnikoff
Jarvis Postnikoff

As told by the table, the action folded around to the small blind, who bet 50,000. Jarvis Postnikoff called from the big blind.

The flop came {3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and the small blind bet 90,000. Postnikoff called.

On the {6-Hearts} turn, the small blind put Postnikoff all in for 377,000 and was snap-called.

Jarvis Postnikoff: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Small Blind: {10-}{10-}

Postnikoff had the stone-cold nuts and had the small blind drawing to a chop.

The {7-Hearts} completed the board and Postnikoff shot up the leaderboard while his opponent settled back down to around a million chips.

Van Der Burg Gets Pilossoph Back

Level 20 : 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante

On the {6-}{8-}{q-} one diamond flop, Billy Pilossoph bet 30,000 and Eric Van Der Burg raised his neighbor to 80,000.

Pilossoph folded and Van Der Burg showed {4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for a bluff to take the pot.

Van Der Burg has since moved up past a million, while Pilossoph has chipped down a little.

Zickert Doubles Up to Nearly 30 Big Blinds

Level 20 : 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante

Jerry Zickert shoved all in from under the gun for his last 195,000 and the player in middle position called.

Jerry Zickert: {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Middle Position: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Zickert was admittedly surprised to be ahead heading to the flop, which was a very safe {4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Spades}.

The {6-Clubs} popped up on the turn, with the {4-Spades} completing the board and giving Zickert nearly 30 big blinds in the last level of the day.

Level 20 : 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante
Jan Pettersson
Jan Pettersson

There was a preflop shove for 110,000 and two players called, one of them being Jan Pettersson.

On the {8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop, the other caller shoved in the last of their short stack and Pettersson called.

Preflop All-in: {a-Spades}{10-Spades}
Flop All-in: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Jan Pettersson: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Pettersson was way in front with pocket queens and the {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} runout was clean for the double knockout.

He just took sixth place earlier this week in the Seniors Championship for $143,189.
