Chris Hunichen started Day 2 of the Venetian High Roller with the chip lead and is still number one the totem pole two levels into Day 1. 

The first two levels of play on Day 2 of the Venetian High Roller have provided much excitement as new faces continue to enter the field and the leaderboard becomes populated by a crop of tough opponents. Chris Hunichen was in the lead at the start of play and is still out in front with 460,000 now in front of him. On Hunichen’s left is the player currently second in chips, James Snyder.

Snyder pulled 302,300 out of the bag and remains on Hunichen’s tail much like he was when play commenced this afternoon. Snyder is playing 380,000 and is a bit of a dark horse in this field. With the table of Hunichen and Snyder scheduled to stay together for the next few levels, it will be interesting to see if any major pots break out between the two players. A look at the current leaderboard is below.

Among the players who entered at the start of Day 2, Adrian Mateos has had the best day out of all of them, so far, as he has parlayed his starting stack of 50,000 all the way up to 330,000. A look at the current leaderboard is below.

Chris Hunichen – 460,000
James Snyder – 380,000
Adrian Mateos – 330,000
Taylor Paur – 325,000
Darren Elias – 270,000
Charles Furey – 240,000
