Welcome to Day 3 of Event #50: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack, an event that is scheduled to play out over six days.
Some 2,092 players took their sets at the start of Day 2, and by the end of play 457 had moved on to Day 3. Kainalu McCue-Unicano (2,187,000) bagged the healthiest stack, followed very closely by Andrew Moreno (2,034,000), Brady Bullard (1,971,000), Justin Kindred (1,900,000) and Benjamin Ector (1,869,000) round out the top five.
The money bubble burst before dinner break on Day 2, and notables such as Barry Greenstein, Taylor Paur, Jake Schwartz and Matt Stout didn't find a bag for the day but did manage to cash. Others, such as Igor Yaroshevskyy, Alex Lynskey, Nika Futterman, Mike Shariati and Ali Imsirovic all bagged at the end of Day 2 and will be back in action on Day 3.
All players returning on Day 3 are guaranteed a minimum payout of $3,534, but of course it's the highly-coveted WSOP gold bracelet and $1,008,850 payday that goes along with it that everyone has their sights set on.
