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 five players with at least 130K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

1.  David Hoag  –  228,200  (571 bb)
2.  Robert Welch  –  167,200  (418 bb)
3.  Dimitry Agrachov  –  137,500  (344 bb)
4.  Jason Andrews  –  134,800  (337 bb)
5.  Anastasios Kotsaris  –  131,900  (330 bb)

Jason Andrews won a three-way all-in last level, shoving with Ax9x suited, and getting called by AxJx and AxQx. There was a nine on the river to win him the pot, and he catapulted up the leaderboard where he now sits fourth in chips.

The tournament clock shows 459 entries so far on Day 1B, for a tournament total of 1,123. The total prizepool is up over $3.59 million, absolutely crushing the $2 million guarantee. Registration remains open with unlimited re-entries until the start of Level 9, around 9:15 pm.

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