Late into the night it was looking like Dejan Boskovic would be the chip leader. Boskivic won a big pot against Jonathan Karamalikis and Bernard Beh when Beh was all in preflop and Boskovic held {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} on a {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} board. Beh eventually mucked before exiting the tournament, while Karamalikis showed his {k-}{k-Spades}.

While Boskovic was a threat, it was Yan who steadily built a stack throughout Day 2 to end up with the chip lead. Yan, from New Zealand, is no stranger to the Crown Poker Room as he finished 6th in the Aussie Millions Main Event earlier this year.With only the top 36 players set to make the money, Day 2 was never going to get near the bubble. Some of those who fell extremely short of the deep run they were looking for were Team PokerStars Pro Bryan Huang, Brendon Rubie, Gary Benson, Ashley Warner, Daniel Neilson, Dave Allan, Aaron Benton and WSOP gold bracelet winner Jarred Graham.
