As players are eliminated and tables broken, players are given new seating assignments; as such, new table rosters are emerging. Perhaps the most fearsome lineup is over at Table 303 which looks like this:
Seat 2- Richard Brodie
Seat 3- Jason Mercier
Seat 4- Steve Zolotow
Seat 6- Michael Binger
Seat 7- Bryan Micon
Seat 8- Jose-Luis Velador
Players are now on a 20 minute break as the tournament staff race off the green chips.
Phil Ivey, who is still alive at the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. final table, registered for this event and his stack was being anted away for the past few hours. Ivey was left with a single light green chip worth 25 which was used as his ante 33 minutes into Level 6. That is how long he managed to last without playing a single hand.
Likewise, Phil Hellmuth, who arrived late to find a stack of only 375, has been eliminated from the tournament.
Phil Hellmuth finally arrived to his seat, only to find 375 remaining after being dwindled by the antes.
"You've only had the high card one time in an hour and a half," David Grey explain.
"One time," Miami John Cernuto repeated in disbelief. Hellmuth managed to double up his very first hand, but he'll still have his work cut out for himself.
