Get ready for ten levels of six-handed poker, because the cards are back in the air.
There are 167 players remaining out of the 474 that started, but only 48 will get paid. The race for the money is on, and there are plenty of top-notch players still in the hunt!
Play will be very deep-stacked today, and the average comes down to just over 70 big blinds. Of course that doesn't matter that much for most players, and big all ins will be all over the place. Carter Phillips had his aces fully paid off by JC Tran yesterday, Tristan Wade got Harrison Gimbel to seven-bet his nines all in, and that is some of the action we are looking forward to again today.
Taylor Paur (152,800) and Chris Moorman (111,300), who both made the final table of this event last year, have a good chance at racking up another cash in this event, just like Williams Reynolds, Sean Getzwiller, Aaron Jones and Chris DeMaci who are also looking for back-to-back cashes.
Play will resume at 1:00 PM local time, and ten levels will be played today.
