The players have returned from dinner to begin Level 7, with increased blinds of 500-1,000 with a 1,000 ante.

A scan of the field during the dinner break turned up only two players with at least 300K in chips, and they barely beat that threshold:

1.  Alex Nguyen  –  301,300  (301 bb)
2.  Joey Gargiulo  –  301,000  (bb)

The tournament clock shows 843 entries as play resumes, and the prizepool is already up over $2.69 million on its way to the $3 million guarantee.

Registration remains open with unlimited re-entries until the start of Level 9 (around 9:15 pm).
