The $10,000 buy-in, $10 million GTD Wynn Millions Main Event began with 1,075 runners, but headed into Day 3 just 154 remain in contention for the $1,655,952 first-place prize. All of those players will aim to finish in the top 116 to secure a min-cash of $22,029, and the money bubble will burst on Tuesday.

On Monday, 172 players returned for Day 2c action, but after three 90-minute levels of play just 87 remained with Jake Daniels , who began the day with 160,000, and his stack of 837,000 leading the way. That is a little behind that of Day 2ab chip leader Chad Eveslage, who bagged 939,000.

Others to make it through Day 2c were David Lambard (675,000), Kristen Nyman (525,000), Ben Hamnett (435,000), Alex Livingston (428,000), Athanasios Polychronopoulos (400,000), Jason Wheeler (330,000), Brock Wilson (296,000), Javier Zarco (250,000), Sean Perry (219,000), Shaun Deeb (186,000), Matt Berkey (70,000), Nick Schulman (106,000), and defending champ Andrew Moreno (185,000).

Of course, not everyone was so lucky. Among those to hit the rail on Monday were Chance Kornuth, Ryan Laplante, Tony Dunst, Larry Ormson, Xuan Liu, Noah Schwartz, and 2017 WSOP Main Event champ Scott Blumstein.

The surviving players from both Day 2ab and 2c will return at noon local time on Tuesday, March 8 to battle it out on the felt in Day 3. Stay tuned as the PokerNews live reporting team will be back to bring you call the action from the 2022 Wynn Millions!

Perry Cracks Aces to Triple Up

connorrichards • Level 13: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante
Sean Perry
Sean Perry

Sean Perry was involved in a three-way all-in as the shortest stack against Daniel Moran and another player.

Sean Perry: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
Daniel Moran: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

The flop of {8-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts} was an action one as it gave Perry a flush draw, and the board finished out {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades} to win him the main pot for a triple-up.

"Let's fu**ing go!" shouted Perry as the river card peeled off to send him the big pot.

"Sean, let's go to the craps table," said Jake Daniels after seeing his table mate's luck. "I don't know why you don't live at the craps table at this point."

Deeb Pulls Off Trademark Slowroll with Aces

Shaun Deeb
Shaun Deeb

Shaun Deeb raised in late position to 8,000 with just 65,000 total in his stack. The big blind, Javier Zarco, then moved all in, and after about 10 seconds of pondering his decision, Deeb decided to call off, a decision he had already made.

"I've got a pretty big hand," Deeb said while slowly turning his hand over.

Shaun Deeb: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Javier Zarco: {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

In fairness to Deeb, he acted much quicker than he often does when facing an all-in bet with the nuts. As for the board, it ran out {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and the King of Slowrolls took down the pot.

"It's too bad justice wasn't served," Zarco uttered. Deeb's still sitting on a below average stack but he's now back in business.

Deeb Gets a Shove Through

connorrichards • Level 13: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Jake Daniels opened to 9,000 in the hijack and the cutoff flat-called. The action folded to Freddy Deeb in the small blind, who three-bet jammed a stack of around 100,000.

Both of his opponents folded and Deeb took down the small pot, which hardly dented Daniels' massive stack.

Polychronopoulos Lays Down Ace-Queen, Gets a Lecture

connorrichards • Level 13: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Athanasios Polychronopoulos opened to 10,000 in early position and the player on the button moved all-in for around 100,000.

"Alright my friends, it's been fun. I'm all-in," he announced before pushing his stack to the middle.

The action folded back to Polychronopoulos, who thought through his decision as his opponent chatted with Freddy Deeb from a few tables over.

"Are you all-in?" Deeb asked his friend.

"Yep," the player told Deeb.

Polychronopoulos took a minute or so before folding ace-queen offsuit face-up on the table. The opponent showed {a-Spades}{k-Spades} and expressed bewilderment over what Polychronopoulos was considering calling with.

"My friend, what are you even thinking about?!" he said. "That's an instant fold. It's not even suited."

"I had a big hand," shrugged Polychronopoulos.

"Not in my book," the opponent countered.

Kim Wins Flip to Take Out Kornuth

Chance Kornuth
Chance Kornuth

Chance Kornuth was down to around 60,000 and got all of his chips in the middle in a pot against Brian Kim, who had him covered.

Chance Kornuth: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Brian Kim: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

The flop came {6-Spades}{j-Spades}{5-Diamonds} to keep Kornuth in the lead with his nines and the {5-Hearts} on the turn didn't change things. However, the {q-Diamonds} on the river gave Kim a better pair and Kornuth was eliminated.
