€8,500 Cannes Main Event

That'll Do It

With approximately nine minutes remaining in level eight, the media was asked to leave the tournament room signaling the end of today's action.

The tournament clock showed 117 players when we last checked, so pending no more eliminations, 216 players will return to the felt tomorrow afternoon for Day 2.

The tournament staff has informed us that the prizepool will not be released until later this evening, therefore, we'll make that information available to you as soon as we get it. End of Day 1b chip counts will also be posted at that time.

Our coverage will resume tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 p.m. local time (9:00 a.m. EST). Until then, from Cannes, France, good night and good luck!
