First place pays out $1.4 million CAD, with second place winning a cool million (Canuck bucks). Most of the cheesecake is at the final table, but the top 250 places pay out.

Day 3 will consist of 10 levels of action. Brian Yoon bagged up the big stack on Day 2A, which ended up the biggest stack overall. He heads into the third day of action as the chip leader.
