Day Two has come to and end.

That means there's just one more day remaining on the WSOP Circuit schedule here at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, which will conclude on Monday.

Earlier today, the Main Event picked up a surprising number of late entries as about 30 players registered the morning of Day 2.  Normally, that number is no more than a dozen or so.  With the late surge, registration closed at a very respectable 670.  The tally pushed the total prize pool over the million-dollar mark.  The top 72 finishers are collecting prize money from a pool amounting to $1,005,000 with over $200,000 going to first place.

After beginning the day with around 280 players, we hit the money late this afternoon once the field got down to the final 72.  By the time play concluded for the evening at around 2am ET, 30 players remained.

Atop the leaderboard for the moment is David Grandieri, from Danbury, CT.  He rocketed to the top and now has 1,352,000 in chips -- which is a huge lead over the rest of the field.  Grandieri's next closest competitor is Jonathan Tamayo, who has 850,000.  The average stack size is about 446,000.

Some of the recognizable names also returning for Day 3 include Nancy Birnbaum, Jonathan Tamayo, Bruce Yamron, and Phillip Hui.  Sam Panzica is also back in action for Day 3 and has a chance to extend his lead substantially in the Casino Champion contest.  He'll be returning with 586,000 in chips.

There were several other notables who made the money, but failed to survive the day.  With his 48th place finish, Rex Clinkscales reclaimed the top spot in the National Leaderboard standings, which determine the at-large bids to the 2013 WSOP National Championship presented by Southern Comfort 100 Proof.  He and Ari Engel are now tied for number one with 227.5 points each.

Other notables in the money included Lee Childs, from the Washington, DC area, who came in 40th.  Another notable players was Manny Minaya, who has won millions in major poker tournaments over the past decade.  The Miami-based poker player finished 49th.  One name from the past who surfaced in this event was Jon Brodie, from Davie, FL.  The longtime WSOP tourney veteran finished in 65th place.  Mukul Pahuja (66th), Harrison Gimbel (63rd), Ebony Kenney (56th), and Harrah's Atlantic City Main Event Champ Adam Teasdale (44th) all collected paydays as well.

Players will take a much needed break for the night and resume play on Monday.  We will then play this tournament to its conclusion.  The winner will collect the coveted gold ring, plus $206,020 in prize money.  He or she will also receive an automatic seat into the WSOP National Championship sponsored by Southern Comfort 100 Proof.

Play resumes at 1 pm on Monday afternoon.  Remember that the action can be followed here and on ESPN3 on a five-minute delay.  The final table of nine players should be set sometime late on Monday afternoon and should play well into the night.
