Cards are now in the air. However, just before, the remaining 22 players were informed of a few structure changes. Levels 28-29 will be reduced from 60 minute blind levels to 50 minutes. Starting at Level 30, blind levels will increase every 40 minutes.
The tournament director informed the field that this was due to the large field size the event attracted.
Austria's Josip Simunic joked that, "Can we just flip right now?"
