Bryn Kenney and Jon Aguiar are off to good starts after the dinner break, up to about 130,000 and 120,000 respectively. On the flip side David Sands and David Peters are among the players who have recently busted.
Busted 1st bullet. Debating on playing 2nd either tomorrow or Saturday…most likely Saturday.

The players return from dinner to begin Level 10, with increased blinds of 400-800 and a 100 ante. Unofficially, the tournament clock shows 423 players remaining from a Day 1A field of 634, but we are still waiting for official confirmation of that number.
Level 9 comes to an end, and the players take their 90-minute dinner break. Action will resume at 8:00 pm.
The tournament clock shows 627 entrants in the Day 1A field, and registration remains open until the end of the dinner break.
Picking up the action after a flop of , Carlos Chadha-Villamarin and Nelly check-called 1,900 from the player in middle position to see the turn. Chadha-Villamarin bet 6,000, and only Nelly tagged along to see the river which Chadha-Villamarin checked. Nelly promptly bet 8,000 and sent Chadha-Villamarin into the tank for about two minutes before he called.
Nelly tabled for two pair, besting Chadha-Villamarin’s holdings to win the pot and increase his stack to about 55,000.
Dan Shak raised preflop under the gun and the button reraised all in. The big blind called and then Shak reraised all in as well. The big blind called Shak’s shove too and the three players flipped over their cards.
Shak and the button were eliminated on the hand. Shak will most likely be back to fire another bullet.
