After eight and a half levels of play, we're ready to conclude for the evening as our survivors from each Day 1 get ready to meet tomorrow when they will get into the money and work their way to a final table.
Today's field was predictably smaller than yesterday's. Of the 1,119 who signed up for play today, 165 will play tomorrow. They'll be joining 290 additional players for a field of about 455.
Those who didn't make the cut today include Shannon Elizabeth, James Akenhead, David Bach, Victor Ramdin, Men Nguyen, Chino Rheem,David Singer, Ylon Schwartz, George Lind, Gavin Griffin, Michael Mizrachi, Jimmy Fricke, Antonio Esfandiari and Allek Kessler.
That's not to downplay those who have had successful days. Players bagging their chips for the night include chip-leader Ryan D'Angelo (67,875), Svetlana Gromenkova (34,925), Eric "gpokerg" Wasserson (30,000), Antoine Saout (27,000), Ari Engel (24,900).
The money bubble will pop when we reach 324 players, and it shouldn't take too much time to do so. After that, it'll be a drive to the final table and a bracelet worth a whopping $481,760.
Make sure you join us tomorrow at 2:30pm local time as we bring you all the action fit to print for the final three days of Event #36.
