Last Level of the Day

[user20283] • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

The initial idea of playing down to a winner just got changed. We are playing one last level, and if there's not a winner by the end of it, we will return tomorrow to play it out.

Short Break Marks the End of the Level

MarcC • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

A 20-minute break was announced, but the players negotiated that down to ten minutes.

Down to a Winner

[user20283] • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

Whatever happens we are going to play down to a winner tonight. That is the information we just got from the tournament director. The limits are huge and it could all be over in a matter of hands, but with the current pace it could also still take a couple of levels.
