Tuesday was a day at the 2008 World Series of Poker where we saw a number of bracelet holders sent packing.  Among them: Bill Edler, Svetlana Gromenkova, Robert Varkonyi, Scotty Nguyen, Barry Greenstein, Kathy Liebert and Blair Hinkle.

The leader on the day heading into Wednesday was one Brian Schaedlich.

According to Poker Verdict, Scheadlich qualified for the ME via a $130 satellite and in his first ever visit to Vegas has amassed a jaw-dropping 745,000 chips by the end of Day 2. Starting on a stack of around 160,000, he proceeded to bulldoze his way through the field and anyone that dared stand up to him was either out-drawn or considerably out-flopped. "It's my first time out here, I just want to make my first main event a big one and try to have a lot of fun," said Schaedlich. "I thought I would be nervous if I ended up with a big stack, but I haven't broken my concentration, I think when I go home and get to my hotel room it will probably hit me then". He certainly seems to fit the profile of your modern Main Event winner.

The 465 survivors from Day 2A will join the survivors of Wednesday's Day 2B event. 

The combined survivors of Days 1C and 1D will get back into action at noon Wednesday for Day 2B. 2,378 players will return.
