The players have returned from break to begin Level 5, with increased blinds of 300-600 with a 600 ante.

A scan of the field during the break turned up three players with at least 200K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

1.  Gil Aboodi  –  221,900  (370 bb)
2.  Sandy Tabin  –  219,000  (365 bb)
3.  Diaz Gilbert  –  216,400  (361 bb)

The tournament clock shows 620 entries so far today, for a tournament total of 1,422, which means the prizepool will be worth more than $4.55 million, more than doubling the $2 million guarantee. Registration remains open with unlimited re-entries until 9:15 pm.

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