With 1,303 players starting out on Day 2B, nine hours and four minutes of play left 450 players standing. Tomorrow they'll join the 349 remaining players from Day 2A and play for the WSOP title.
Day 3 begins at noon with 13 minutes of play remaining in Level 11, with blinds and antes of 1,200/2,400/300. Approximately 800 players will sit down and battle it out for the 2007 WSOP title in a combined field.
With 621 money places, this year's Bitterest Bubble is bound to come down quite a while before the Las Vegas sun during Day 3.
The step from zero to $20,000 is noticeable for quite a few of those players, after all, and one of them will be the last one leaving the Rio without a comforting lump of cash.
Some big names remain in the field, such as Danish star Gus Hansen on second place with 530,000 in chips, and Todd Brunson with 95,000. Many others have been knocked out: Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker and Allen Cunningham all have to watch the rest of the World Championship from the rail.
