The first Day 2 of the 2nd annual $10,000 buy-in, $10 million GTD Wynn Millions Main Event as part of 2022 Wynn Millions at Wynn Las Vegas wrapped up Sunday evening and saw the players from the first two starting flight combine and compete. At the end of the day, it was Chad Eveslage who bagged the biggest stack with 939,000 chips heading into Day 3.

Eveslage came into the day with a top-five stack, thanks in part to a huge cooler on Day 1a that vaulted him up the leaderboard. He ran it up today to end with nearly a million in chips and leads the field.

There were 143 players who came into today, and that field was cut by more than half, as only 67 players bagged at the end of Day 2ab. The day ended shorter than expected, with players only playing three levels instead of the planned five. Tomorrow, the players from the third starting flight will return for Day 2c, and those who make it through the day will combine with the rest of the field on Day 3, where players will make it into the money.

The payouts have been announced and 116 players will claim a piece of the $10,105,000 prize pool, with a min-cash being worth $22,029. The eventual winner in this premier Wynn Millions tournament will receive $1,655,952, in addition to the glamorous Main Event trophy. The runner-up will also see a seven-figure score with a cool $1,093,314 consolation prize.

Big stacks at the end of Day 2ab include Joao Simao (754,000), David Miscikowski (731,000), Faraz Jaka (626,000), Sam Soverel (604,000), Ali Imsirovic (566,000), and popular French poker vlogger Johan Guilbert (705,000), who came into the day as the clear chip leader and added some more to his stack.

Players who were in the field on Day 2ab but didn't make it to bagging time include Daniel Negreanu, Joseph Cheong, Jason Koon, Uri Reichenstein, and Jason Somerville.

The players who survived Day 2ab will return at noon local time on March 8 to battle it out on the felt in Day 3. Before that, action will pick up on March 7 at noon with Day 2c.
