After nine hours of play, perennial high roller winner Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer bagged up the most virtual chips, with a huge stack of 5,607,112. O'Dwyer would earn most of that stack through Kahle "ROFLshove" Burns, after the two had a huge clash on the final hand of the day.
The remaining field is stacked with players you recognize from the biggest stages in poker. This list includes Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos (2,178,998), Joao "Naza114" Vieira (1,530,554), Andrew "ClockWyze" Pantling (1,187,973), Joao "INeedMassari" Simao (735,019), and the aforementioned Burns, who still has 731,639 after losing that pot to O'Dwyer.
The top 53 players finished in the money today. Amongst those who finished in the money, but won't be making it to Day 2, are Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis (29th), Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger (33rd), Thomas "MarToMchat" Boivin (36th), and Sergei "Futti18" Koliakov (45th) amongst others.
