With the clock ticking down on the first level of the day, Event 1 dropped down to 137 players to put them on the money bubble. Tournament staff announced for dealers to hold up after their current hand before beginning the hand-for-hand process.

But they didn’t get that far. There were at least three all-ins around the room and one player was eliminated before bubble play was necessary.

Floor staff confirmed the head count and the remaining 136 player were in the money with barely a sweat.
