Players in the top ten all hold comfortable stacks with each of the top five sitting with over 100 big blinds. That doesn't mean there are not plenty of formidable contenders still left in the field, Scott Hempel (429,000), Nadya Magnus (423,000), Ali Imsirovic (403,000), Brian Hastings (402,000) and Ryan Riess (319,000) will make their way up the mountain in hopes of making a deep run.

While the latter sits comfortably, an uphill battle is in store for WSOP bracelet winners Vladimir Peck (120,000), Damian Salas (119,00), Chris Moorman (110,000), Justin Saliba (88,000), Steve Zolotow (66,000), and Adrian Buckley (43,000) if they wish to make it into the money here on Day 3.

Day 2 Schedule

Play will begin at noon local time, with blinds picking up at Level 16 where blinds will be 3,000/6,000/6,000. The plan is to play a total of ten 60-minute levels with a 10-minute break between every two levels.

End of Day    

At the end of 10 levels, all remaining players will bag up for the night and return for Day 3 on Tuesday, November 2 at noon local time.

There will be 314 players returning for Day 2 action, and only 188 spots will be grabbing a piece of the prize pool. With over 100 players needing to drop to reach the money and judging by the previous flights, the tournament should retain the action-filled play that has been up to this point.

After the money is reached, a min-cash of $7,860 will be distributed with each payouts increasing until the eventual champion earns themselves $812,270.
