$10M GTD, Final 21 Players: Shuffle Up & Deal!

The final 21 players are back, with their chips restacked and ready to play. It’s time to shuffle up and deal!

These players are guaranteed to earn at least $58,175, though thoughts keep returning to the first prize of $1.7 million.

Action resumes in Level 29, with blinds at 30,000-60,000 and a 10,000 ante. The average chip stack is about 3.4 million (56 big blinds). The structure in this tournament was designed to slow down late, when the stakes are the highest, and you can see that reflected in the rising number of big blinds in the average stack.

The tournament will continue today until they reach the final six players, who will return tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12:00 noon for the final table.
