Play is set to resume in the $500 + $50 Deepstack Re-entry with just 57 players involved in the restart competing for one of 24 places on the payout table. This means that just 33 players must be eliminated before the tournament is in the money – a threshold that should be met relatively quickly this evening.
The chip leaders to start the day are well ahead of the field – Mike Lafable, Shaan Siddiqui, and David Bonneau – are all playing more than 300K, while the player in 5th place is a full 100K behind them. This could accelerate the action as players in the mid-leaderboard will have extra motivation to take out shorter stacks and catch up to the lofty heights of the leaders.
In any case, it is guaranteed to be an interesting night of poker – good luck to everyone still playing in the event!
