Event 40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed attracted 732 players – many of them notable names – and created a tempting prize pool of $3.44 million. By the end of the first day 172 remained with the money bubble still some distance ahead at position 78, and 2010 WSOP November Niner Matt Jarvis leading the pack.
Still in contention were names like Randy Dorfman, Daniel Negreanu, Eugene Todd, Faraz Jaka, Shaun Deeb and Phil Hellmuth – still hunting for that elusive and record breaking twelfth bracelet.
Play was continuing at level 20 as the competition ground on into the early hours of Saturday morning Vegas time, with Justin Filtz holding a comfortable chip lead over a field of 25 survivors as the end of the second day loomed.
Still in the top ten are Matt Jarvis, Daniel Negreanu and Jude Ainsworth.
Less fortunate and busting out on the second day were Faraz Jaka, Phil Hellmuth, Isaac Haxton, Eugene Todd and Olivier Busquet.
