Day 2 started with 22 players and several short stacks trying to spin up their stacks early on. Early casualties included Yuri Dzivielevski, Maxx Coleman, Eugene Katchalov, Matt Glantz, and Shaun Deeb.
Bryce Yockey started the day at the top of the leaderboard but took some big hits early. He rode a rollercoaster all day but steadied the ship to make it to Day 4, ending the night with 1,290,000 chips.
Speaking of comebacks, Craig Chait found himself with 65,000 chips yesterday at the final three tables redraw. After nearly two full days of play, he was just above starting stack. Going into Day 4 tomorrow, he has an impressive 1,245,000 and has nearly eight big bets to work with.
Paul Sokoloff was the player eliminated in sixth place to bubble the final day's stream. At one point he was down to 20,000 chips after taking a big hit when he made trips in a big Razz hand. He hung around for hours after that, though, refusing to give away his chips until the last hand of the evening.
