Robert Hankins is part of the latest wave of players to 1,000,000 chips as the Event 56 field hits dinner break. 

The action has been fast and furious all day and six levels into Day 2 of Event 56, the dinner break has arrived. The remaining 86 players have 45-minutes to get themselves nourished for the final four levels of the night, the first of which will start at approximately 7:45 pm.

In the last level, more players have pushed themselves into the exclusive “Millionaires Club.” Some of the players who reached that hallowed ground are Robert Hankins, Khiem Nguyen, the start of Day 2 chip leader Matthias Eibinger, and Doug Lee. The finish line for Day 2 is still quite a few hours away, but anyone with a big stack at this stage of the tournament has to be feeling good about their chances heading into the latter stages of tonight.
