The action started fast with the field making the money bubble just three and half hours into the day. Some of the early eliminations included Ari Engel, Jake Schwartz, Esther Taylor, Ali Imsirovic, and Brett Richey.
The bubble itself however would drag on for about an hour and a half. It was Noah Bronstein and Mark Birdsall who ended up busting on the same hand to get the rest of the field into the money with a guaranteed payout of $4,819.
Some of the players to make the money but not bag at the end of the night were Daniel Negreanu, Phil Laak, Rok Gostisa, Christian Harder, Ben Yu and Gabriel Andrade.
Play ended an hour early tonight, so tomorrow will pick up on Level 20 with the blinds at 10,000/20,000 and will likely play down to a winner.

Action was on the turn on a board that read . Robert Emmerson bet the pot from the cutoff, which was 210,000 and Tony Hartmann called after much deliberation from the button.
The river came the . Emmerson went all in for 120,000. Hartmann immediately started to curse under his breath and stand up shaking his head.
"All I can beat is a stone bluff" he said. After thinking for a few minutes he flashed and folded in disgust.
"Please don't show me a bluff" he pleaded but Emmerson did just that as he turned over and spiked the on the table to confirm the fears of Hartmann and collected the pot.
Orod Ashegh moved all in with his short stack. Robert Emmerson called and Tony Hartmann shoved his larger stack into the middle which folded out Emmerson.
The board ran out to eliminate Ashegh.
Brian Hastings was all in and at risk preflop against Uri Reichenstein.
The runout was and Hastings could not topple the kings of Reichenstein.
