Final break of the night

The final 39 players are now on their last break of the night.  The average stack is 143,000, and the blinds will be 3,000/6,000 with a 1,000 ante when the players return.  Tournament staff are now racing off and coloring up the 500 chips.

Event #1 is now in the money

A player was all in before the deal from the small blind and after the button had raised, he found [Qd][9c] against the button's [Js][Jh].  He briefly celebrated after the [8s][Ac][Qh] flop, but the [Jd] hit the turn to leave him drawing dead.  The meaningless [2d] fell on the river, and the remaining 63 players are now in the money.

Rob Brown, Dena Pearlman, and Michael Nye are still among the final 63 in their hunt for a WSOP Circuit Ring.

Event #1 is now hand for hand

We are now down to the final 65 players, and with 2 more eliminations until the money bubble is burst, the tournament is now playing hand for hand.

Players are back from dinner break

Players have returned from their one hour dinner break and are now playing 800/1,600 blinds with a 200 ante.  The 136 remaining players will now be playing 40 minute levels for the remainder of the day.  There will be 9 more levels before bagging up their chips for the night.

Players are now on dinner break

With the conclusion of 600/1,200 blinds, the remaining 169 players are now on their 1 hour dinner break.  Play will resume at approximately 6:20pm EST.

The remaining levels for Day 1 will be 40 minutes in duration, and blinds are 800/1,600 with a 200 ante when the players return.

Big stacks going into dinner break

Dena Pearlman wins one

On a [2c][Ks][Ah] flop, Dena Pearlman's opponent check called a bet.  The turn fell the [Js] and Dena's opponent checked once again, prompting Dena to move all in.  Her all in earned a snap fold, and Dena smiled as she dragged the pot, saying "I don't know, you could have hit the turn!"  She now sits on approximately 70,000.
