Another three players entered the Main Event just before the start of Day 2. This means that this year's Main Event drew a field of 648 entries that created a AU$6,480,000 prize pool, of which the top 72 finishers will receive a share (the winner will get AU$1.6 million).

In total, 344 players returned for Day 2 at Crown Casino in Melbourne and about 125 of them remained after five 90-minute levels of play. Jan Suchanek, who started Day 2 with the overall chip lead, will lead the way to Day 3 with 483,900 chips.

Notables who also advanced to Day 3 include defending champion Ami Barer (318,600), Phil Ivey (278,300), Mike "Timex" McDonald (167,300), and 2014 WSOP runner-up Felix Stephensen of Norway (153,100).

We will be back tomorrow morning with an update on how things played out in Day 3's seven 90-minute levels of poker.

Phil Ivey seems nicely positioned as they go into Day3 of this event and every player will be aware of this. The defending champion has made it through as well so kudos to him on the defense of his title

Phil Ivey is sticked to this event. Things seem to be running well for him. His name can do a bit of the job for him, scaring opponents, but he also knows what he's doing, there's no free chips on this event, not even for Phil, although i guess he may have aready listened "Against you? Ok, you can take it" a lot of times.

Ivey has continued to do well and knocked out Felix Stephenson with a pair of jacks and is now on an average stack (410k) with only about 42 left.Mike McDonald is still in there with a similar chip stack (570k).....everyone now in the money and the tournament getting to an exciting part now.

90-minute blindlevels must be a lot of fun, considering that some players even have problems waiting on playable cards/spots on an online tournament with 10-minute levels, let alone sitting through a movie length level to wait for good cards then seeing how everybody folding before or after you 'cuz they know exactly what you are holding.
