We started this event with 1,819 yesterday and after 11 levels of play, we find ourselves with 206 players vying for the first-place prize of $454,424. For 198 of those players, a WSOP cash is just around the corner. We expect to hit the money soon and will continue on through ten 1-hour levels of play.
Mark Wahba, from Cleveland, Ohio is in the lead with 152,000. There are plenty of notables still remaining in the field including Frank Kassela (121,800), Todd Terry (83,400), Dan Kelly (36,000), Paul Wasicka (38,300), Amit Makhija (23,600) and Andy Frankenberger (22,100). A few notable shot stacks Adam Geyer (13,300) and Cary Katz (8,700) have their work cut out for them as we are beginning the day at level 12 with 600/1,200 blinds and a 200 ante.
