After just over 7 hours, Day 2 of the PokerStars SCOOP-33-M: $530 NLHE [8-Max, Sunday Million SE] has come to an end with nine players out of 4,218 entries making it through to the final day and final table. The lion-share of the $2,109,000 prize purse will be handed out on Tuesday, April 13 when play will resume at 7:05 p.m. CEST to play down to a winner for the first-place prize of $301,179.

Pablo "elmelogno4" Melogno grabbed the chip lead away from "seboraptor" in the final hand of the night when he eliminated "KKing James". He had called the three-bet shove of the Brazilian with pocket queens and those held against the ace-king of the final table bubble boy.

Melogno will be coming back with 77 big blinds while "seboraptor" has 70 of them. The other players have reached the final table are "GamadGADOL", Lucas "Rochinha2011" Rocha, Bruno "brunoporto12" Porto, "brille-390", "tzuzteutezu", William "WilliamI666" Barbosa, and "M4GPI3".

As the day started with 210 players in the field, many familiar names fell along the way. Players like Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz, Jaime "jaimestaples" Staples, Shawn "buck21" Buchanan, Dario "Secret_M0d3" Sammartino, Rodrigo "digopapel" Semeghini, Talal "raidalot" Shakerchi, and Hannes "SuchADegen" Speiser all busted before the final three tables were reached.

Day 1 chip leader Bruno "brunilsks" Borges didn't have things going for him today and ended up in 25th place when he ran his ace-jack into the king-eight of "seboraptor". The king on the flop meant the end of his tournament run. It would then take almost two hours before the final table bubble was reached with notables like Alexandros "Pwndidi" Theologis and Diego "Die Ventura" Ventura being sent to the rail in the meantime.

Once that level is done, the level duration will increase to 30 minutes until play ends with a winner at the end of the road.

The PokerStars Twitch stream will be live from 7:30 p.m. CEST to bring you all the action with cards-up coverage on a 30-minute security delay. Commentary will be provided by James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton as usual and they will be joined by guest commentators throughout the evening.
