We didn't think it would take too long to get through to our final table this evening, but we certainly didn't think it would take less than five hours of play to reach our final table.
Players started to fall from some of the very first hands and in what seemed like no time at all we were down to three tables, then two, then one. Some talented players were among those who didn't survive, including Svetlana Gromenkova. John Clancy, Peter Traply and Josh Goldstein.
The nine players that will be returning to play tomorrow include chip leader Sebastien Roy (1,867,000), but he is followed closely by Timothy Beeman (1,788,000). Daniel Fuhs is the only other player heading into the final table with over a million chips (1,251,000). Meanwhile, Michael Michnik is our short stack (307,000) and Scott Montgomery will need a little help to improve (604,000).
Join us tomorrow at 2:30 PM local time as we return to play down to a winner.
