Brian Altman Brings A Massive Chip Lead to Day 2 in the Hunt for His 4th Main Event Ring

After the completion of all three starting flights, today is the day that all remaining players will merge together for the first time to condense the field down to the final table of 10, at which time the remaining players will bag up one last time in preparation for the final day of the flagship event here at the WSOPC Horseshoe Hammond stop.

Altman played in the smallest starting field by far, but still managed to bag 29 starting stacks, worth 1,161,000, in a field of only 190 participants. Altman also happens to be the most decorated and accomplished player left in the field with one WSOP bracelet to his name and four circuit rings, three of which came in Main Events. His impressive resume also boasts over $8,000,000 in live tournament earnings, $1,700,000 of which has come at the WSOP .

Men Nguyen will come into the day with 826,000, good for the second biggest chip stack overall but still a far cry from the mountain that Altman will be sitting behind. Rounding out the top three chip counts coming into the day is Harry Paik, who enjoyed the chip lead late in the day before bagging the second biggest stack of Flight 1c.

When play begins, all players will be looking up at Altman and attempting to find a way to throw him off course, but with credentials like Altman’s, that will be no easy task.

Play kicks off at 11:00am with 159 players remaining from a total field size of 986. The field will only need to lose 11 players to burst the money bubble where a min-cash will net these players a payday worth $2,556, but with $257,725 up top along with the ring, the title and the seat to the 2024 Tournament of Champions, everyone in the field will have their eyes pinned on that top spot.
