Good morning once again, and welcome back to live coverage of the WPT Borgata Poker Open.

Yesterday's Day 1A attracted a big field of 400 entries, which sets an ambitious pace for the total turnout. Ben Bianco went on a late rush to bag up a huge stack of nearly 400,000 chips, and DraftKings qualifier Andrew Atkinson is next on the list with about 235,000.

Those are the numbers to beat today, and the end-of-day chip leader earns a shiny new set of Monster headphones as a prize.

Those who failed to survive yesterday are eligible to return again today, and registration and re-entry remain open until about 8:15pm this evening.

Play begins in just a few minutes.
