Championship: Money Bubble Bursts Before Hand-for-Hand Play Begins

$5,300 SHRPO Championship (Re-Entry)
$3,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure | Payouts
Level 16:  4,000/8,000 with a 8,000 ante
Players Remaining:  139 of 1,110

Championship Field After the Money Bubble Burst

When the field got down to 140 players, tournament staff announced for all tables to finish their hands in progress and wait for hand-for-hand play to begin.

At some point during that process, another player was eliminated. The Money Bubble burst without the need for any hand-for-hand play.

The remaining players are all in the money, guaranteed at least $8,115 each. Congratulations!

With 139 players remaining from a field of 1,110, the average chip stack is around 319,000 (40 big blinds). There will be a 90-minute dinner break after this level (around 6:30 pm), and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 20 (around 12:15 am).
