The bubble has just burst on Day 2A. All of the remaining players are in the money and will be returning on Sunday at 1:00pm for Day 3.
The Day 2A chip leader is none other than Jishant Sapra, who bagged 1,376,000 in chips. Sapra was in the lead for most of the day and slipped into second place during the supper break but managed to climb his way back to the top when it was all said and done. Mark Salerno had the second largest bag, with 1,337,000 in chips and the chip leader from the dinner break, Andrew Knowles, bagged third place with 1,097,000 in chips.

Players will be returning to play for the $2,000,000 prize pool (the prize pool will be finalized once late registration closes tomorrow on Day 2B).

The WSOP-C Monterrey takes places from October 11 – 21, 2019 at the Jubilee Casino in Monterrey Mexico.
The final hand on Day 2A was quite spectacular. Brian Hodhod was super short stacked with only 4,000 chips in the big blind, not even enough to pay the full ante of 6,000. The action folded to Sterling Webley in mid-position who limped in. When it reached Tanveer Dhanjal he ripped it in trying to isolate. The player on his direct left, Mathieu Caron, then also shoved his stack. Webley folded and all three hands were opened:
The flop came , and Caron was way out in front. The turn brought the and Caron was still in the lead and unfortunately for Hodhod, he was now drawing dead. The river brought the and Caron could not believe his eyes, with Dhanjal taking it down and eliminating both Hodhod and Caron in a single blow.
Players can still buy directly in to Day 2B tomorrow (Friday) at 12:00pm. There is also one final satellite currently running for entry into Day 2B with late registration open until 11:15 tonight.
