At the start of level seven the average stack in the room was 10,292. Players will play through levels seven, eight, and 40 minutes into level nine, which is where play ceased on day 1a.
A total of 423 players will make the money in this tournament although we obviously won't reach that number until the two day one fields converge tomorrow afternoon.
Our first place finisher will walk away with $611,185 in addition to the prestigious gold bracelet.
601 players remain in today's field and we're sure there will be plenty of exciting action over the next couple of hours!
