The players have returned from break to begin Level 3, with increased blinds of 200-400 with a 400 ante.

A scan of the field during the break turned up three players with at least 100K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

1.  David Farber  –  127,000  (318 bb)
2.  Ari Dinov  –  124,800  (312 bb)
3.  Hector Pacheco  –  104,700  (262 bb)

The Day 1B field is up to 289 entries, which means the total field is up to 832, and the prizepool is worth more than $4.03 million. Registration remains open until the beginning of Level 9, around 9:15 pm.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after Level 6, around 5:30 pm, and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm.
