The players returned from break to begin Level 9, with increased blinds of 1,000-1,500 with a big blind ante of 1,500. Registration is now closed, and we expect the prizepool to be released tonight after play ends.

A scan of the field during the break turned up four players with at least 300K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

1.  Barbaro Diaz  –  336,000  (224 bb)
2.  Neil Zonenashvili  –  332,000  (221 bb)
3.  Salim Khoury  –  306,000  (204 bb)
4.  Thomas Boivin  –  305,000  (203 bb)

The Day 1B field is up to 921 entries, which increases the tournament total to 1,566, making the prizepool worth more than $5.0 million.

Action will continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm.
