Ventura bought into the $1 million guaranteed WPT500 Knockout on Day 1A back on March 16 where he finished high flights with 10,137,148 chips. Nobody has managed to surpass that impressive eight-figure stack so far.

Day 1A was a good day for several other grinders because they still find themselves in the top 10 chip counts with four of the scheduled eight flights remaining.

Julien Perouse of Canada (8,413,275), the MILLIONS Online Main Event champion Endrit Geci (8,383,469), and Bulgarian Stoyan Kitanov (6,454,732) are all safely through to the business end of this massive PKO event.

The current Day 2 field is littered with household names and legitimate superstars. Yuri Dzivielevski (7,384,791), former member of Team partypoker Josip Simunic (6,877,284), Bryan Paris (6,344,301), and former MILLIONS Online champion Benjamin Chalot (6,012,000) currently occupy spots in the top 20.

Further down the counts you find the likes of David Peters (5,512,257), Steven Van Zadelhoff (4,182,311), Alex Foxen (3,301,388), Damian Salas (2,186,189), Mary Pudmoreff (1,216,434), and Joao Vieira (1,207,627).
