It was a close race between the end of the level and the hard stop. They made it down to ten minutes remaining and tournament staff paused the clock and instructed dealers to deal four more hands.

Once the dust was settled, Michael Newman put the biggest stack in a bag for a Day 2 return on Sunday. His 503,000 is the leader among the 28 players still around and they will wait for Flight B and C survivors to join them.

Full chip counts to come when they are available.
