The Main Event field got a little bit smaller on Tuesday. Two flights consisting of Day 2 runners went to the felt. And only 1,100 survived out of the 2,219 runners who returned.
Lawrence Bayley from the U.K. is the big stack with 618K. The only other player with at least 600K is Mickey Craft.
A pair of former Main Event champs are still left in the hunt... Greg 'Fossilman' Raymer, Joe Hachem, and Jon Duhamel.
Defending champ Qui Nguyen failed to advance to Day 3. And once again, we will not have repeat champs at the WSOP Main Event.
