Day 1 Concludes with Seven Left
Level 21 concludes, and that signals the end of Day 1. From a starting field of 228 entries, just seven players remain.
Seat 1: Stephen Bierman - 244,000
Seat 2: Jasthi Kumar - 528,000
Seat 3: Jonathan Milon - 146,000
Seat 4: D. Mike Morrison - 482,000
Seat 5: Herb Whitaker - 780,000
Seat 6: Ethan Gilbert - 196,000
Seat 7: Dustin Murphy - 360,000
None of the remaining players have won on the WSOP Circuit before, so one of them will collect their first gold ring on Friday.
Blinds will be 6,000/12,000 with a 2,000 ante when play resumes, putting the average stack around 32.5 big blinds. Everyone left is guaranteed to earn at least $4,207.
Day 2 begins at 1 p.m. and will continue until a winner is determined. The ring and a top prize of $28,502 will go to the winner.
