A very long Day 2 wrapped at WPT Bay 101 early this morning with just 36 players left and plenty of star power still in contention.
Leading the way is Imad Allahham with 1,717,000 and second behind him is WPT regular Taylor Paur with just over 1m.
Packed into the Top 10 however are three names very familiar to poker fans in Sorel Mizzi, Isaac Baron and Faraz Jaka.
All bagged up just under 1m in chips to stay hot on the heels of the lead pack and well in position to reach the final six.
Mizzi and Jaka are also two of the four remaining Shooting Stars in the field, but collecting their bounties may prove difficult.
Lewis, Moorman, Price Battle for Brits
Also back to battle on Day 3 today are three of the toughest Brits in the game.
Toby Lewis, coincidentally the last player to enter the field, bagged up 799,000 to keep him up in the lead pack as well.
Shooting Star Chris Moorman, who won his first major live title at the WPT LAPC last spring, finished with 560,000 to stay in the hunt and keep his bounty uncollected.
Oliver Price, member of Team UK at the upcoming Global Poker Masters, returns with 558,000.
Shooting Star Garrett Greer, former WPT Champs Giacomo Fundaro, Steve Brecher and Shawn Buchanan and Ari Engel will also return for Day 3.
