The board reads that there's just 44 players left in the field, down from the original 342 that came to play the 2010 APPT Macau Main Event. That's just four spots off the money, meaning four very unfortunate players will have to wake up today, walk in the tournament room and then leave with nothing. Sure, one will inevitably be named the bubble boy of this year, but who honesty wants that title?

TJ Vorapanich sits at the top of the pack with 472,900 chips. He was a top-five stack until the very last hand of the night where he sent one more player to the rail as another massive pot was pushed his way. Up until that point, Kai Paulsen held the chip lead. Paulsen capped off his day at 416,800 chips and is the only other player about the 400,000-chip mark. Heck, those two are the only two players in the field above the 300,00-chip mark! Brendon Rubie is third on the leaderboard and he's got 299,300.

Team PokerStars Pro has been dwindled down to just one player. Marcel Luske played solid and tight all day yesterday. Even though he entered the day with under 20,000, Luske was able to double up a few times when his big hands paid off and he rounded out the day at 93,000.

Play kicks off today at the usual 12:15 p.m. local time here at the Grand Lisboa Hotel and Casino. Be sure to stay right here on PokerNews for all the live updates as the action progresses. We'll see you shortly!
