The Live Day 2 of the Grand Prix Canada has come to a close after 14 levels of play, and the field has been whittled down to just 25 finalists who will return tomorrow for the conclusion of the event. Two more players will be added into the mix from the online Day 2 that took place on partypoker.net, and the restart tomorrow will therefore include 27 runners.
The overall chip leader to start Day 3 is Raphael Duval, who steadily chipped his way to a 22,165,000 chip stack. He narrowly passed online chip leader Jeff Cuccurullo, who ended his Day 2 with 21,470,000. Anatoly Zharnitsky (18,365,000) and Matthew Wilkins (10,650,000) rounds the top 4, while the remainder of the field falls below the 10 million chip mark. Full counts as well as Day 3 seating assignments will be published shortly.
