An exciting day of poker is ahead for the latest medium stakes event of the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) 2020 as a field of 3,856 will see 351 survivors return to their seats at 1.05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) for Day 2 of WCOOP-48-M: $530 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, Sunday Slam].
Besides all bounty prizes accumulated so far, they have all locked up a portion of the cash prize pool with at least $678 guaranteed so far. However, each knockout will increase the chances of a far bigger score and the progressive bounty on their own head.
Leading the field into the penultimate tournament day is Poland's "eStfu" with 3,921,999 followed by "Netstorm" (3,899,249) and Joep "Pappe_Ruk" van den Bijgaart (3,597,692) - all of them have more than 180 big blinds at their disposal.
Other known notables with big stacks include Hannes "SuchADegen" Speiser (3,168,091), Denis "NEWFlat" Timofeev (2,774,324), Rui "Silden4filho" Bouquet (3,089,139), Job "DeadNylan" Greben (2,329,429), Hristivoje "All In PAV" Pavlovic (2,1,07,332), and Fabian "fabstinho" Quoss (1,905,805).
