Tuesday June 28 , 2011 : Event 43: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em also stretched into the early hours of Monday morning before play was halted at level 20 on the second day with 39 players remaining from the massive original field of 2,857.
 
The day started with 385 players led by Age Spets, but he was to fall later, as did Erica Schoenberg, Maria Ho, Nick Binger, Tommy Vedes and Thomas Keller, leaving Byron Kaverman in the chip lead at the end of the second day, on 1.34 million chips – well ahead of nearest rivals Douglas Yamashiro (722,000) and Simon Watt (648,000).
 
Day three should be an exciting affair as the battle for a final table place, and ultimately a major first prize, evolves.
