On Day 2 they started with 96 players and 12 hours later only eight remained. Jeremy Malod had the chip lead at the end of the night when he eliminated two players back-to-back.
Day 3 is guaranteed to be an exciting one, Malod (7,570,000) leads the remaining players with 76 big blinds and Jon Baylor (2,130,000) is the short stack with 21 big blinds. All eight players have plenty of room to play and it is anyone’s game as they say. There will be an unofficial final table redraw at seven players, after just one elimination.
