Alex Luneau won a big pot on the final hand of the night and secured the chip lead at the end of Day 2. The final 14 players will return Saturday at 2 p.m. and play down to a winner.

Luneau finished with 783,000 and the chip lead by more than 100,000 over the second biggest stack, Jared Bleznick (679,000).

Barry Greenstein (417,000) is one of the biggest names going through to Day 3. The WSOP Hall of Famer will earn his tenth cash of this year's WSOP and will be looking to push for bracelet number four.

Bleznick has three cashes this summer, with two fifth place finishes ($1,500 2-7 No-Limit Lowball and $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball).

Day 1 chip leader Larry Tull made it through to Day 3 as well. He bagged 418,000.
