Day 2ab Notables
The plan for Day 2ab was to play five levels, but the speed of eliminations brought the day to an end a level early with 89 players remaining.
The returning Day 3 players are led by Rossitto, who went on a massive run on Day 2 to finish with 966,000. A deep run would be Rossitto’s second cash of the series, with the first coming on a run to 27th in the $1,600 Mystery Bounty.
Rossitto is joined near the top of the leaderboard by Joseph Sabe, who finished with 862,000. Sabe won the $3,500 event at the 2022 Wynn Millions for just over $500,000, and his career earnings sit just shy of $1 million.
Also near the top of the leaderboard are Alex Foxen and Jake Schwartz, with 814,000 and 720,000 respectively. Foxen has already cashed three times at this year's Wynn Millions, including a fourth-place finish in the $3,000 6-max event for $112,006. Schwartz also cashed in the $3,000 6-max with an 11th-place finish for $12,903.
Justin Liberto will also return on Day 3 with 688,000. Liberto is fresh off of a big win in the Main Event at the 2023 Potomac Winter Poker Open, and he returns less than $100,000 from $5 million in lifetime earnings.
Other players returning for Day 3 include Danny Wong, Mitchell Halverson, Kitty Kuo, Andrew Moreno, Chance Kornuth, Faraz Jaka, Jessica Vierling, Ryan Riess, and overall Day 1 chip leader Michael Dyer, who finished with 734,000.
Surviving players will combine with Tuesday’s Day 2c finishers at 12 p.m. local time on Wednesday in Level 15 with blinds at 3,000/6,000 with a 6,000 ante. Day 2c kicks off on Tuesday at 12 p.m. with 156 players returning to play four 90-minute levels.
