At present, we have 329 official registrants today – though this number could rise yet further. There are 176 players left in the tournament from today, although as we saw yesterday, this will likely fall substantially before the day is done as shortstacks go for a boom or bust approach to their chip management.
We’re just approaching the end of level 9, which will signal that it’s time for the players to take a rest from their efforts. They’ll have 15 minutes to relax before returning to the fray for the final three levels of the day.
In fact the bell has just sounded. We’ll be back in 15 to guide you through to the end of the day.
See you then!
