The players return from break to begin Level 12, with increased blinds of 1,000-2,000 with a 2,000 ante.

A scan of the field during the break turned up only two players with at least 180K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

1.  Michel Simoneau  –  235,000  (118 bb)
2.  Dan Saffer  –  218,000  (109 bb)

With about 165 players remaining from a flight of 606, the average chip stack is around 73,500 (37 big blinds). Action will continue until there are 76 players remaining, and everyone who bags up chips for Day 2 will finish in the money.
