Today, 148 players will get back into the action at 1 p.m. PST in the purple section of the Amazon Room to contend for a spot at the final table. Eric Baldwin, a 2009 World Series of Poker bracelet winner, is today's chip leader.
Those racing Baldwin for the bracelet and the $305,952 first-place prize include Adam Geyer (118,200), Annette Obrestad (98,000) and Nick Abourisk (87,000). All three players aggressively accumulated chips in the later levels of last night, and Day 2 is expected to pick up the action at the same speed.
Other notables still in the game include Sean Small, Jason Koon, David Peters, Ari Engel, Matthew Waxman, Brent Hanks and Paul Wasika.
