Vivek Rajkumar is set to win his second World Poker Tour (WPT) title in the space of a month.

The player is currently the chip leader at the North American Poker Championship and is the only one to have broken the one million chip mark. 
In second place is Gavin Smith who has dropped one place after starting the day in the lead.

The field was narrowed down from 99 poker stars to just 27. These will return to play on October 15th to determine which six will make up the final table.

Other notable names who are still in the running are Brian Hawkins with 676,000 American Matt Matros.

Hanging on in the competition is Miami John Cernuto who is severely shortstacked with just 92,000.

Rajkumar won the final table at the WPT Borgata this year in record time. The 22-year-old won took only 48 hands to finish off his opponents and bank over $1.4 million.
