Rafael Reis during happier times

Before tournament staff could begin hand-for-hand play on the money bubble, we lost two players after dealers were told to hold up. Rafael Reis was one of those two when he got his four-deuce in the middle after a AcTs4s flop and ran right into pocket tens. He was eliminated along with a player at an adjacent table to leave only 90 advancing to Day 2 on Sunday at 1 pm.

The two big stacks at the last break were the two big stacks at the end of the day, only with swapped spots. Mike Chiappetta bagged biggest with 493,000 while Christian Barrett was second with 460,000.

We will post the complete list of chip counts as soon as they are available.
