Day 2c completed
On Tuesday, the $10,000 buy-in, $10,000,000 GTD Wynn Millions continued with Day 2c, which saw 246 players return to action. After five 90-minute levels, the field was whittled down to 86 players with Frank Funaro and his stack of 953,000 leading the way.
That is slightly ahead of Day 2ab chip leader Dominique Mosley, who bagged 933,000.
Funaro got a good chunk of his stack in the penultimate level of the night when bracelet winner Bryan Piccioli jammed the river with pocket kings on a board double paired with sixes and treys. Funaro had ace-six in his hand and had an easy call to win an over half-million chip pot.
Along with Day 2ab’s 76 survivors, the 86 surviving players from 2c will turn for Wednesday’s Day 3 as 162 returning players will try to make it through the money bubble. The tournament, which attracted 1,328 entrants over a trio of starting flights, is offering up a $12,483,200 prize pool to the top 134 finishers. A min-cash is worth $25,091 while the eventual winner will walk away with a $2,018,866 first-place prize.
Others to bag stacks on Day 2c were Thomas Boivin (926,000), Dylan Linde (849,000), Bin Weng (788,000), and Ramiro Petrone (782,000), who round out the top five.
They were joined by the likes of Farid Jattin (662,000), Ilyas Muradi (635,000), Daniel Negreanu (621,000), Matas Cimbolas (518,000), Maria Ho (500,000), Robert Mizrachi (436,000), Tom Marchese (419,000), Ari Engel (286,000), Benny Glaser (208,000), and Poker Hall of Famers John Hennigan (227,000) and Jack McClelland (34,000).
Among those to fall over the course of play were Erik Seidel, Matt Stout, Maria Konnikova, Brian Hastings, Blair Hinkle, Camille Brown, Bryan Piccioli, Calvin Anderson, Dorian Rios, Frank Stepuchin, Mike Del Vecchio, Kou Vang, and Johnny Chan.
Chan fell in the first level of the day when Chris O'Hara moved all in preflop from under the gun for about 38,000, claiming he was doing so blind. It folded to Chan in middle position who moved all in himself for slightly less with jack-ten. Everyone else folded and O’Hara table ace-eight, which held on a clean runout.

With over 100,000 already in the middle and a completed board of showing, Dapo Ajayi was facing an all in bet from Benny Glaser on the button.
Ajayi was deep in the tank, peeking at his cards and counting chips when Glaser called for a clock. When the tournament director got to the ten-second countdown, Ajayi tossed in the chips and the two players tabled their hands.
Glaser quickly rolled over for a set of sixes and it was well ahead of the Ajayi tossed into the muck.
Robert Mizrachi raised from the cutoff only to have the player in the small blind three-bet to approximately 40,000. Mizrachi responded by moving all in and the player in the small blind hit the tank for a bit before folding.
After the small blind encouraged Mizrachi to show, the latter said, "Tip the dealer $20 and I'll show?"
"Twenty bucks?" the small blind confirmed. Mizrachi nodded and the small blind reach into his wallet, produced a $20 bill, and tossed it to the dealer.
