$3,500 WPT Poker Showdown Championship
$3,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure
Level 9: 1,000/1,500 with a 1,500 ante
Day 1A Entries: 967
The players returned from break to begin Level 9, with increased blinds of 1,000-1,500 and a 1,500 ante.
Registration has closed, and the tournament clock shows an unofficial field size of 967, which means the prizepool has already eclipsed the $3 million guarantee, with another full starting flight tomorrow.
A scan of the field during the break turned up three players with at least 325K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:
1. Nate Steuer – 396,500 (264 bb)
2. David Toscano – 330,500 (220 bb)
3. Stephen Song – 328,000 (219 bb)
Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm. Day 1B begins tomorrow at 11:00 am.
