The bubble has been popped and four Canadians will carry their stacks forward onto Day 3 at the PokerStars Championship presented by Monte Carlo Casino Main Event. The top Canadian stack belongs to none other than the most familiar face in poker, Daniel Negreanu.
Just 134 players survived Day 2 with the bubble busting late in the day with the elimination of 144th place. Negreanu tossed 300,000 into the bag at day’s end to claim a top 20 stack. Fellow Super High Roller and countryman Daniel Dvoress also survived with a healthy stack of 150,000. The other two Canucks still in the mix are Arezki Belaidi (69,500) and Thomas Popov (26,500).
A couple of Negreanu’s fellow Team PokerStars pros also found some success as Celina Lin (200,500), Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier (121,500) and Liv Boeree (63,500) all found a bag at the end of the night.
Timothy Adams bought in before the start of Day 2 but could not survive. Other Canadians to see their Main Event run come to an end include Bradley Marsh, Andrew Chen, Natasha Barbour, Nabil Chaya, Wesley Wong, and Lucas Greenwood.
Day 3 will kick off at noon local time in Monaco with an exciting day of poker ahead. Want your chance to play the PokerStars Championship events?
