Players are on a 15-minute break as the tournament staff colors up the green chips. There are a total of 520 entries in Flight E and registration is now closed.
Nadya Magnus, Juan Mendoza, David Gutfreund, and Michael Kamenjarin are among the many familiar faces in the field today.
Magnus was short-stacked and moved all in for 3,300 with Q-Jo from middle position. Her opponent in the big blind called with pocket aces, but the board ran out Kh Qd 4h 7c Qs, giving Magnus trips to double up. Unfortunately for Magnus, she was out later that same level.
Gutfreund is off to a nice start at a stack of 40,000, but Andrzej Rogowski is the early chip leader with 80,000 chips heading into Level 8 with blinds at 400/800 and a 100 ante.
