Day 1B is officially halfway in the books and players are on a 60-minute dinner break. Registration and re-entry will remain open through the start of Level 10, which will begin at approximately 7:30 pm. Players will return from break with nine levels in front of them before officially booking a spot in Sunday’s Day 2.
William Black was among the chip leaders a few levels ago but is now alone at the top as he nearly doubled over the last level to head into the hour recess with 150,000. There is still a lot of poker to be played before the bags come out at 2:00 am but Black has set a fast pace for his competitors to follow.
The Choctaw blog will return on the other side of break with another look at the leaderboard along with some names out there looking to charge up the ladder.
