It would take just over six hours on Day 2 of the 2020 PokerStars Stadium Series Freezeout Weekly Final - High: $1,050 NLHE before the final table was reached. The $1,500,000 guaranteed prize pool attracted 1,347 players with 159 of them returning for Day 2 earlier today knowing that they had locked up at least $2,705 already. But they all had their sights set on that fantastic first-place of $234,451.

Luan "Pseudo Fruto" Felipe came into Day 2 with the chip lead and lost it a few times throughout the day but ended back on top after everything settled down on a hectic day. Felip will come to the final table with 33,390,252 in chips which is worth over 110 big blinds at the start of Day 3. He is followed by Marc-Andre "FrenchDawg" Ladouceur with 19,449,172. Ladouceur started the day second in the counts and finds himself back in the exact same spot. Alisson "heyalisson" Piekazewicz completes the top three with 17,545,537 after losing a chunk of his stack during the latter stages of the day.

Breno "Breno2728" Drumond is the third Brazilian player at the final table with 11,814,410. Russia has two players left to battle it out for the title with "Zar77262" (11,738,652) and "_m0ney2_89" (10,205,636). But there are also two Dutch players: "K0SICE" (10,990,032) and Teun "tinnoemulder" Mulder (9,122,800) who both will looking to add another title to their winnings. Austria's Daniel "Razer2311" Rezaei will be back for the final table with 10,443,689.

As Day 1 ended just after the bubble burst, the start of Day 2 was chaotic with eliminations all flying in from the first second and throughout the day. By the time the first break came around, 66 players had already busted the tournament. Another 40 were gone once the second break started. Players like Christian "eisenhower1" Jeppsson, Javier "minusth3bear" Zarco, Ian "Simpioni" Simpson, Dinesh "nastyminder" Alt, Team Online members Ben "Spraggy" Spragg and Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis, and Artem "veeea" Vezhenkov were some of the many who left the tournament earlier than they wanted.

The players kept stumbling over the many hurdles the game of poker can bring and after almost four hours, the tournament was down to its final two tables. Jonatan "TanTanSWE" Hellman fell to Hannes "SuchADegen" Speiser, Rezaei then took out two players in one hand, "caramelo123" then got his aces in on the turn but "K0SICE" rivered a straight. Speiser then got taken out by Felipe before Pablo "PabloPool12" Roman was knocked out by Piekazewicz to get the tournament to the final table bubble.

That bubble ended up lasting almost 40 minutes with several players finding double-ups to stay alive but in the end it was "Mintewek" who would miss out on a spot at the final table and a ticket to the Grand Final worth $5,200 for all final tablists when he three-bet shoved his shortstack in with ace-trey and was called by Felipe who held ace-jack. The flop brought chopping outs but no help came on the turn nor river for the Dutchman as he was sent away in tenth place.

When the players return on Tuesday at 7:05 CEST, they will finish the remainder of Level 36 which has a small blind of 150,000, a big blind of 300,000, and a running ante of 37,500. Level duration will increase from Level 37 onwards and play will continue until a new PokerStars Stadium Series Weekly Final - High Champion can be crowned. And the PokerNews team will be here to bring you all the updates so stick around.
