$300 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack
Players hit the breaks with 110 players left in the tournament while staffed stalked the tables waiting for one more knockout to go into hand-for-hand play. It stayed that way for nearly a full level and when the damn broke, hand-for-hand was unnecessary.
Two short stacks were eliminated on opposite ends to the room at the same time. Staff stopped the action to officially count down the field and that number was 108 remaining putting them all in the money. Min-cash is $543 while the winner will pick up $78,300.
After a short round of applause, they are back at it in Level 19. The short stacks who limped into the money will now try to double up or cash out while the leaders in the room try to increase their stack for a final table run.
