This was another great day for Phu who entered Day 2 in third rank. By mid-day, he crossed a million and brought it all the way to closing time.

Another player just as consistent was China’Lin Jian who entered as overall chip leader of the starting heats. He maintained course to bag up second rank with 865,000.
