Event 67: $3,500 No-Limit Hold’em $3,000,000 Guarantee
Total Entrants: 1,032
Players Remaining: 138
Average Stack: 149,500
The 138 remaining players in Event 67 are on their second break of the day as the money bubble approaches. The rush of Day 2 entries has subsided and the 1,032 have put over $3,300,000 up for grabs. The first of that prize money will be handed out once the field narrows to 108 players, which should be over the course of the next two levels.
A min-cash in this event is worth $6,935 but the $610,941 reserved for first place is impossible to ignore. Play will resume shortly and the field will play two more levels before taking a 45-minute dinner break at the end of Level 17. As play picks back up, the Venetian Poker Blog will return with another look at the leaderboard.
