Around 3,480 players started Day 2C of the WSOP Main Event and after five levels of play, only 1,655 players will advance to Day 3. Ignacio Sanchez ended Day 2C with a monster stack in excess of 627,200. Sanchez is the overall leader heading into Day 3 on Saturday when all three opening flights will combine into one field.

Another day, another 50% gone. The third installment of Day 2 included all of the surviving players from Day 1C. By the time Day 2C ended, only 1,655 players were left standing out of 3,480 initial starters. The lucky ones who bagged up chips at the end of Day 2C will join the survivors from Day 2A/2B on Saturday. The top 1,182 places get paid out in the Main Event and the remaining field took one giant leap forward.

Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Chino Rheem, and Davidi Kitai are among the big names who advanced to Day 3.

The 2018 WSOP Main Event continued with the third and final round of Day 2. On Friday, players who survived the cut on Day 1C returned to action for Day 2C festivities. As expected, half of the field was liquidated in only 5 levels of play, or 10 total hours of game-time action.

Out of the 3,480 players who survived the largest flight in WSOP history, only 1,655 players still have their dreams alive. These fortunate souls return to the Rio on Saturday to play in a combined field with players from Day 2A/2B. Although 2A and 2B were played on the same day, the fields were separated and 2A played in a different room compared to 2B. All three opening flights and their respective Day 2s will join together for one unified field for Day 3. Ooooooh, that's when thing really get juicy.

We currently have approximately 2,786 players remaining in Event #65 $10,000 NL Main Event. Only the top 1,182 players get paid out. The money bubble should pop early on Sunday a.k.a Day 4, but you can anticipate lots of crazy action on Day 3, otherwise known as moving day at the WSOP. Either you're gonna fly back home on Sunday, or you're extending your stay a few more days.

The Phils attracted the most attention in the Rio. Phil Ivey is quiet and you'll barely hear a peep out of him. While everyone knows where the Poker Brat is sitting at all times. If he's not bringing the attention to himself, there's a huge rail gawking at Hellmuth and awaiting for a blowup of Hellmuthian proportions.

At the end of Day 2C, Phil Ivey had a big stack. One of the biggest in the Rio. He bagged up 11th overall or 434K.

Ignacio Sanchez bagged the overall lead for Day 2C and the overall Main Event chip lead with 627K. France's Eric Sfez is second overall with 552K. Rounding out the Top 5 are another Frenchman and two Canadians: Matt Klapstein, Victor Choupeauz, and Colleen Yamagishi.

Among the notable and familiar names who advanced to Day 3 included... Phil Ivey, Chino Rheem, Phil Hellmuth, Cory Albertson, Vi Do, Shane Schleger, Tobby Ziegler, Brett Murray, Steve Song, Daniel Ospina, Damian Salas, Avi Cohen, Yang Xhang, Alex Reard, Patrik Antonius, Johannes Becker, Johnny Bax, Xuan Liu, Dustin Fox, Dan Heimiller, Josh Jackson, Shawn Buchanan, Nick Maimone, Loni Harwood, Steffan Sontheimer, Eugene Katchalov, Jim Collopy, Curt Kohlberg, Barry Greenstein, Keith Lehr, James Obst, Steve Billirakis, Sylvain Loosli, Adam Geyer, Pat Mahoney, Porter Lambert, Chris Moorman, Mike Takayama, Alessio Isaia, Dong Kim, Did Not Report, Jesse Sylvia, Liv Boeree, Ryan Laplante, Stephan Ma, Paul Vacchio, Seth Foster, Matt Smith, Ilya Trincher, Leif Force, Richard Lee, Taylor Black, Tex Barch, Dean Hamrick, Cate Hall, Eric Hershler, Sean Winter, Yong Wang, Fatima de Melo, Minh Nguyen, Andrea Klein, Pablo Mariz, Billy Pappas, Uri Reichenstein, Taylor Paur, Todd Brunson, Ralph Perry, Federico Butteroni, Markuu Koplimma, David To, Gregg Merkow, Theo Tran, Jessica Dawley, Chris Wood, Martijn Gerrits, Thomas Ross, John Smith, Jason Daly, Kai Cai, Ivan Demidov, Eoghan O'Dea, Brandon Shack-Harris, Aditya Agarwal, Bob Ash, Manig Loeser, Richie Pyne, Yu Shen, Ben Jackson, Alex Difelice, Martin Malone, Dan Smith, Mark Mazza, Jennifer Shahade, Kelvin Gates, Vlad Darie, Peter Eichhardt, Martin Kozlov, Tyler Patterson, Nam Le, Ed Ho, Scott Hill, Luiz Ferreira, James Ankenhead, Shannon Shorr, Thomas Boivin, Gene Todd Bro, Victor Figueroa, Joe Cada, Roland Israelashvili, Pat Moore, Tony Spinella, Randy Holland, Tom Koral, Kane Brett Richey, Kelly Kim, Mike Ruane, Alex Queen, Jamie Kerstetter, Ying Fu, Steve Gross, Jake Cody, Jeff Hakim, William Kassouf, Rob Peacock, Ian Johns, Chainsaw Kessler, Justin Pechie, Tom Cannuli, Jean Gapard, Davidi Kitai, Mike Amato, Mike McDonald, Cyndy Violette, and Parker Talbot.
