It's not just in $10,000 Championship Events where you have big names making deep runs. Event #39: $1,000 Super Seniors is down to just 120 players and there are still several notables still in with a chance of winning a gold bracelet and $359,863.

Barry Shulman and Allyn Shulman both made it through, with Barry bagging 1,270,000. Also through are former bracelet winners Steve Hohn (613,000), Larry Wright, Humberto Brenes (442,000) and "Captain" Tom Franklin (210,000), all making Day 3, which starts at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 19.

Leading the field after Day 2 is Jay Hong (1,838,000) who bagged well over a million chips. Hong was already in a strong position, but after eliminating another player on the antepenultimate hand of the night when his jacks held against ace-king, he strengthened his position further.

Other stacks over a million include James Plateroti (1,181,000) Cliff Pappas (1,165,000), Steven Wenrich (1,094,000), and Miles Harris (1,090,000).
