There were just two final tables on Monday's World Poker Tour Online slate but the action was clearly focused on the WPT500. The final two starting flights drew 298 and 408 players respectively and Day 2 began with 681 players who survived one of the 10 starting flights. Italian Walter Treccarich ended Day 2 with 18,966,747 chips and heads into Tuesday's final table with the chip lead. Right behind him is Fabio Sperling with 18,702,704 in second place and Philipp Dietrich in third with 18,212,576.

Christopher Putz bagged up 13,082,130 - 31% less than Treccarich - and Markus Prinz sits fifth with 12,825.148. The bottom four stacks belong to Harutyun Sahakyan (5,046,239), Fabrizio Gonzalez (3,611,032), Giuseppe Vassallo (2,784,224), with Daan Mulders (2,760,152) holding the shortest stack.
