Only 273 of the starters have received their Day 2 tickets, and they will compete for a share of the main prize pool and a golden mystery bounty envelope. One of those envelopes with prizes has a huge payout of $30,000, which is worth more than the first-place prize money!

On Day 2, play continues until there are only nine players left. The final nine players take a brief break before returning to the action on March 7 at 7:00 p.m. GMT, under the watchful eyes of 888poker Twitch viewers.
