12 players remain out of the original starting field of 215 entries, and it is Russian businessman Andrey Andreev who is the chip leader with 2,270,000.
Big names still in the competition include 2014 WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson, Max Altergott, Dominik Nitsche, Steve O'Dwyer and, not to forget, Dan Smith who played most of yesterday with food poisoning. After reading on PokerStar Blog how ill he was, one can only applaud him for making it this far.
"Smith is currently coping with a bad case of food poisoning. And when I say coping, I mean he's dragging his way through every waking minute. He has a bin nearby, a constant stream of water, and a plan to make it through the next two levels. He also has about two dozen people keeping an eye on him. If he can make it to the end of the day with chips it will be one of the performances of the festival," wrote Stephen Barley on PokerStars Blog.
