Pavel Krapivin, Day 2 Level 21

Pavel Krapivin bought in on Day 2 receiving just eight big blinds and the button to start his run. Now he is sitting with right at 1M and could be the only Day 2 buy-in to chip up significantly in this event. Krapivin has $106k in career earnings and just took the largest share of a 5-way chop at Borgata for an $11k score.

Buying in on Day 2 will not usually yield the results the entrant is looking for. Any player choosing to do this starts at a big chip disadvantage as the field is significantly deeper and the pressure is on immediately. Krapivin ran great immediately though, having 350k within the first level of play and picking up a slew of premium hands in the process. Now, he sets his sight on turning his Day 2 buy-in into a Day 3 appearance.
