Victor Ramdin appears to be running away with the The Big Event at the Bicycle Casino after a huge Day 2 Monday.

As a field of 221 Day 1 survivors was pared down to around 70, Ramdin built a stack of over one million chips, almost twice the size of anyone close to him.

When Day 3 begins Tuesday in Los Angeles, names like Chris DeMaci, Daniel Negreanu, Pat Pezzin, Ryan Hughes, and Alex Kamberis will all be in the top ten, but still remain hundreds of thousands of chips behind Ramdin.

The 56-player money bubble will likely burst on Day 3 with plans to play down to the final 24.

Ramdin has $2.8 million in career live tournament earnings with his biggest year as a pro coming in 2006 when he won WPT Foxwoods.

The Team PokerStars Pro had six cashes including a final table appearance at the 2010 World Series of Poker and started out 2011 with a side event win and main event cash at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

Despite PokerStars and the North American Poker Tour pulling its branding at the 11th hour, the Big Event at The Bicycle Casino still drew 417 players over two starting days in Los Angeles this weekend.

A $1,921,327 prize pool was created with $500,000 reserved for first.

The tournament will run through Mar. 10.
