Just like last week, Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis is leading the Team PokerStars members into Day 2 with 175,137 in chips.

He is joined for Day 2 by Ramon "RamonColillas" Colillas (160,484) and Andre "aakkari" Akkari (39,140) who also had to reenter after losing his chips with kings too.
Fintan "EasyWithAces" Hand held the overpair when the chips went in on the turn but "valerion06" had hit a straight already. Georgina "GJReggie" James lost her last few chips when she held pocket tens and ran them into the ace-queen of her opponent. Ben "Spraggy" Spragg lost his shortstack too but his hole cards were unfortunately unknown.
When the players return for Day 2, they will start with Level 18 which features a small blind of 900, a big blind of 1,800, and a running ante of 225. The level duration will be reduced to 15 minutes until the final table has been reached. Once this point has been reached, the day will end as the final table will be played out on Tuesday, January 19 at 6:05 p.m. GMT.
The PokerStars Twitch channel will be live too from the start of the final table with hole cards coverage on a security delay with commentary provided by James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton.
