Late registration has now come to a close, and the total number of entries for tonight Day 1D is 187 (including 24 re-entries), bringing the total entries from the first four Day 1 flights to 754 players. With another three Day 1’s still to go (Day 1E Sunday at 12:00pm, Day 1F Sunday at 5:00pm, and Day 1G (Turbo) Monday at 10:00am), it looks like the $1,000,000 cash guarantee (plus 15 MILLIONS North America seats) will be surpassed.
The players just had their second break of the evening and one player, Tomas Larivee Magni, a very skilled local player who has had much success in both tournament and cash games, has literally run away from the rest of the pack; where as the average chip stack is around 1.5M, Tomas has a whopping 7,300,000, almost double the second place runner, Lam Nguyen, who has 3,990,000 chips. Nguyen is closely followed by Yirui Zhang, who took down Event #1 last night for a cool $29,389.
Here are the current leaders from the second break:
