The Purple Chip Bounty brought out a talented group for Day 1 with many spots taken after players were eliminated from the Championship. That built a great field of 241 and we have 31 of them returning this afternoon at 2 pm to begin working their way to a winner.

Rambo Halpern leads at the start of Day 2 with former Hollywood champ Duff Charette only a few 1K chips behind. They made it into the money yesterday so everyone coming back is guaranteed at least $1,750.
