Although the PokerStars NAPT Mohegan Sun Main Event saw its attendance nearly cut in half from their Season 1 total of 719 players, amongst the 387 players that did make to the trip for the first official stop on Season 2 of the NAPT are some of the best poker players in the world, including last year’s winner Vanessa Selbst who ended the day with over 87k chips.

Due to the smaller field, tournament officials made the decision to end the tournament after 8 levels of play –Day 1 of the tournament was scheduled to last 10 levels—and Day 2 has also been reduced to just 8 levels.

Here is a look at the 10 largest chip stacks from the remaining 237 players heading into Day 2 of the PokerStars NAPT Mohegan Sun Main Event:

1.    Chris Tryba – 173,400
2.    Jerry Wong – 165,000
3.    Aaron Mermelstein – 147,500
4.    Mehrdad Yousefzadeh – 131,700
5.    Sean Ripp – 128,700
6.    Vanessa Rousso – 125,800
7.    Joseph Gibbons – 125,400
8.    Victor Ramdin – 123,100
9.    Adam Junglen – 117,600
10.    Greg Ostrander – 116,000

Three-time WPT Champion and 2001 WSOP Main Event winner Carlos Mortensen is just outside the Top 10 with 107,000 chips, along with John D’Agostino, Nenad Medic, and Dan Shak, all of whom are sporting stacks of 100k+.

Other big names still in the hunt include Lee Markholt, Bernard Lee, Eric Froehlich, James Carroll, Olivier Busquet, Faraz Jaka, Nick Binger, Pat Pezzin, Matt Matros, George Lind III, Todd Terry, Cliff Josephy, Jason Mercier, Andrew Brokos, Jeff Madsen, Jonathan Duhamel, Joe Cada, and Matt Glantz.
