The second break has come and gone for Event #15, and registration is now closed. The tournament clock shows an unofficial total of 119 entries, but that number hasn’t been confirmed by the cage yet.

But if that number is close, then the prizepool should be worth about $115,000.

The prizepool and payouts will be posted as soon as that information is confirmed and released by the tournament staff.

There are quite a few notables still in the field, including Scott Baumstein, James Calderaro, Esther “Etay” Taylor, and Ken “Teach” Aldridge.

At the end of the first break, the field is up to 85 entries, and registration remains open until the end of the next break (around 8:30 pm). The prizepool is already up to $82,450, and should hit $100K before too long.

Brandon Lulov has emerged as the early chipleader with nearly 100K in chips, nearly quintupling his starting stack before the first break.
