Today saw 1,369 entrants, which combined with the 1,759 players from Day 1A, to create a total field of 3,128.

Will it be Day 1A chip leader, Chernykh Moscow, who finished with 75,150; Olivier Busquet, who ended Day 2 with 60,500; or Chris Moneymaker, the 2003 Main Event Champ?

We've discovered a table pairing that is symbolic of the old poker generation versus the new, younger generation. Over at Table 13, Faraz Jaka is sitting directly to the right of WSOP veteran Mickey Appleman. Both players are sitting with healthy stacks, so it'll be interesting to see if they butt heads.
