A total of 135 players made it to their seats, which includes six players to buy-in after the end of Day 1b and before the start of today, are in their seats ready to battle it out for big money and the coveted trophy. This brings the total field size up to 320 entrants. We will publish the prize pool and payouts when finalized.
