The second day of the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event began with 327 players and concluded with just 41. Timur Margolin finished the day out in front with 1.4 million in chips. Close behind him is Raghav Bansal, who was the chip leader for a long time on Day 2, with 1.2 million.
However, all eyes will be on a different player when Day 3 kicks off at 1 PM in the Amazon room. Phil Hellmuth, who has 12 no-limit hold'em bracelets on his WSOP resume, has 622k chips and is 6th in the chip counts. Be sure that Mr. Hellmuth will play his very best game on Day 3, which is planned to end with a winner, in order to claim his second gold bracelet of the 2015 WSOP and the 15h bracelet in total.
Aside from Hellmuth, former Main Event Champion Carlos Mortensen (383,000), Simon Deadman (650,000), Jeff Gross (502,000), Andy Black (362,000), and Ty Reiman (345,000) will also be returning tomorrow.
The remaining players are guaranteed $11,660 each; the last man standing will get $551,941.
