Level 16 (Blinds 2,000/4,000/400)
Total Day 1D Entries: 1,505
Tournament supervisor Andrew has just announced to the players remaining in the Event Center that there will be three more hands left in the night. The bagging process will then begin, and the room will empty out until tomorrow afternoon. Just a reminder for those that made it to Day 2, action begins promptly at 12:00pm. We saw a lot of action today, with two massive flights bringing the total number of entries to 4,178 (remember that these numbers are unofficial until tomorrow). One thing we will bring you shortly after the bagging process is over, is the total number of players remaining from this fourth and final flight.
Another official stat is the chip leader coming out of the Event Center, Party Poker pro Scott Baumstein (New York, NY) with just over 346,000. Baumstein returned just today from a very successful trip in the Bahamas, cashing in two events at the PCA…including a 15th place finish in the $10,000 PCA Main Event ($73,840). Here are some notables counts to end the night:
Matt Stout – 280,000
Andrew Komanetsky – 275,000
Omar Tavares – 270,000
Ghu Lee – 250,000
Tim Ferry – 220,000
George Alberto – 220,000
Patty Barsanti-Chou – 220,000
Be sure to check back tomorrow morning for the Day 2 table draw, updated chip counts, and live coverage of the event (beginning at 12:00pm).
