The last level ended and the remaining four players opted to cease play for the night and pick things back up tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. local time. At first, the option was to come back at 4:00 p.m., but the players asked the tournament staff if they could instead return at midday.
"It's not my ideal time, but it's better than playing tonight," said Erik Seidel about the decision.
The players liked that this would give them the chance of possibly playing the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. event or the No Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha with Rebuys event tomrorow.
Here's how the chips stack up for the final table.
Seat 2: Erik Seidel - 130,900

Seat 6: Mike "SirWatts" Watson - 166,500
Seat 7: Florian Langmann - 51,200
