Those who prefer playing with four cards instead of two are in for a treat today, as the Day 2 finals of the $400 PLOSSUS Event is set to kick off at 8:30 PM GMT. Leading the way in this latest 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Event is none other than Daniel Negreanu, who has had the chip lead since one of the first flights earlier in the week. He is the only player with a stack over two million, a massive Day 2 starting stack of 433 big blinds.

Other notables who are still alive for this bracelet include Mark Herm (1,017,227), Nick Maimone (826,961), Joao Vieira (710,988), Adam Owen (649,379), and Niklas Astedt (515,318). All of them have above the average stack, which is currently at 388,000.

This is also a progressive bounty event, which means that all players have a bounty number on their heads. When they eliminate another player, they will earn half of that bounty right away, while the other half will be added to their own growing number. Negreanu's bounty is currently at $2,225, but Ashish "NewGambler" Gupta in second place actually has a higher number at $3,350.

The starting blind levels today will be 2,500/5,000 with a 600 ante, and all levels today will be 12 minutes long. There are currently 475 players who have qualified, but the final starting flight of the event is yet to finish, so that number will be finalized when the cards hit the air shortly.

As always, Pokernews will be here from the first hand until the last to bring you all of the updates, so be sure to come back at 8:30 PM GMT for all of the action!
