Final Break of the Evening

The eliminations have kept coming here in this Mega Millions Day 2, as we are down to the final 47 players with just two levels left in the night. The big story right now is defending champion Ari Engel, who looks poised to make another final table run here. The pro has been comfortably above average for most of the day today, and that is still the case, as he has a stack of 2.6 million.

No one has been able to win two Mega Millions titles before. Will Engel do the impossible and win this back-to-back times? Stay tuned to find out!
