In what is currently a very busy poker schedule with large events taking place in Europe and America, the World Poker Tour Legends Of Poker is the event that falls into the latter category. Day 2 was played out just a short while ago and brought the number of players down from 306 to just 72 heading into Day 3.
That means that the prize pool information has been made available as the registration period is now closed. There is a prize pool of $2,430,820 which is to be shared amongst the top 72 finishers, with a minimum payout of $7,050 and a maximum for a win of $613,355.
Dan Heimiller has the best odds at winning that first place payout right now as he has finished Day 2 with a stack of 1,099,000. Other names in the top ten include Richard Munro and a certain Phil Laak who was more than happy to share his good fortune on Ιnstagram and Τwitter.

Matt Salsberg, Mohsin Charania, Matt Stout, Joseph Cheong, Kyle Julius, Will Failla, Paul Volpe and Ryan Reiss were the biggest name casualties on Day 2, with many of them firing quite a number of shots in this event.
