The tastes of Christopher Gu, Alain Bauer, Nada Siddik and the first Wynn Millions champion Andre Moreno not only did they punch their Day 2 tickets, but they did so with stacks of chips which then go to the top of the chip count.
Of course, there were more players who got eliminated on Day 1b than players who made it to Day 2. That was the end of the road for Mustapha Kanit, Shaun Deb, Guillaume Diazand Matt Berkey among others.
Day 2 begins at 10:00 a.m. sharp local time on June 19 and sees the survivors from Days 1a and 1b merge to create a field of over 2,200. Day 2 blinds start at level 12, which means that players pay 1,000/2,500 and a big blind bet of 2,500. The plan is to complete ten more levels, with a 60-minute break after level 17, which is around 7:00 p.m. local time.
