Our old pal Robbie Thompson has taken the mic to cue the start of Day 2. With a warm welcome to the spectators assembled, he announced that we'll be playing to reach the final table of eight today.
With the small blind 3,000 and the large blind 6,000, the cards are in the air, and Day 2 is off and running.
About 36 hours from now, one of these 18 men will become 2012's first poker millionaire with a top prize of more than $1.25 million on the line. Not to mention the shiny gold Super High Roller trophy and a bejeweled Shamballa bracelet worth more than $20,000.
