After completing their second day of play, the WSOPE Main Event is down to 92 players. Day 3 action will kick off at noon, with the remaining participants playing down to 36 –which happens to be the number of players who will reach the money.

Day 2 saw a lot of high-profile casualties including: Howard Lederer, Erik Seidel, Phil Hellmuth, David Williams, Mike Matusow, and Barry Greenstein. But fear not, there are still plenty of big names still kicking, and some prospering! Here are the top 10 chip counts going into day 3:

1. Ian Munns — 528,300
2. Praz Bansi — 299,000
3. Oyvind Riisem — 255,300
4. Arron Eric Filippi — 216,500
5. David Docherty — 216,200
6. Doyle Brunson — 210,900
7. Shandoi Demjan — 209,000
8. Markus Ristola — 205,000
9. Ram Vaswani — 202,500
10. Jason Mercier — 202,300

When play resumes the field will be faced with 800/1,600 blinds and a 200 chip ante, so there is still a lot of poker to be played. Other players still in the running include: John Juanda (39k), Antonio Esfandiari (173k), Barry Schulman (111k), and Annette Obrestad (90k).
