Turkey's Ugur Secilmis (406,000) and acclaimed poker commentator Nick Schulman (400,000) lead the 172 players returning for Day 2c, while other big stacks include Chance Kornuth (286,000), Shaun Deeb (271,000) and Brock Wilson (237,500).
Defending champion Andrew Moreno, who took down the 2021 Wynn Millions Main Event for a cool $1.4 million, will be in Day 2c after bagging a stack of 315,000 on the first day of play.
This year's Main Event attracted many of poker's biggest and brightest stars to generate a total prize pool of $10,105,000 off of 1,075 entries. Other players who will be the Day 2c field include Xuan Liu, Joe McKeehen, Cathy Liebert, Matt Berkey, Jake Daniels and Eli Elezra.
Like Day 2ab, Day 2c will be cut short and consist of three 90-minute levels with a 10-minute break after every level, beginning on Level 11 with blinds at 1,500/2,500/2,500. Days 3, 4 and 5 will last for five 90-minute levels, while Day 6 will play down to a winner.
The lion's share of the prize pool, $1,655,952, will go to the eventual champion, who will also take home the glamorous Main Event trophy.
