Busy Tuesday at the Rio. The Poker Player's Championship continued and Phil Ivey is the big stack heading into Day 3. Three more events played down to a champion including the $10K PLO event that awarded a cool million to the champion. In addition, one of the Deepstack's finally finished out its final table and the Razz event crowned its new (sadist) champion.
