Chipleaders From the Break

A scan of the field during the break for big stacks revealed something unexpected -- a chipleader with five times the average stack.

The average stack is about 871,000, and chipleader Jonas Ten Cate has exactly 4.5 million. That's something you rarely see in a World Poker Tour event.

Here's the unofficial leaderboard from the break:

1.  Jonas Ten Cate  -  4,500,000  (150 bb)
2.  Christian Harder  -  2,860,000  (95 bb)
3.  Messadek Soufiane  -  1,840,000  (61 bb)

Level 25 Begins (62 Players Left)

Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

The players return from break to begin Level 25, with increased blinds of 15,000-30,000 and a 5,000 ante.

With 62 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 871,000 (29 big blinds). These players are all guaranteed at least $4,000, and the next pay jump is $5,000 for 54th place.

There will be a one-hour dinner break after Level 27, which should be shortly after 8:00 pm PT. Action will continue tonight for as long as it takes to reach a winner.
