The official prizepool information has been released by the casino, and with a field of 593 entrants, the total prizepool is worth $2,172,994.

The final 54 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $8,630 -- enough to profit even if a player bought in for two Day 1s (at $3,700 each), but not enough to cover the $10,000 last-minute buy-in.

1st:  $576,369*
2nd:  $330,110
3rd:  $213,600
4th:  $145,640

Level 13 Begins (180 Players Left)

Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

The players return from break to begin Level 13, with increased blinds of 1,000-2,000 and a 300 ante.

With about 180 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 105,000 (105 big blinds).

The official prizepool has been released, and will be posted here in the updates momentarily. You can find the prizepool information at any time by clicking the "Payout Structure" button on the lower-right side of this page.

Somebody Paid $10,000 and Hasn't Shown Up Yet

Level 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Player Paid $10K Then Skipped 2 or More Levels
See that chip stack in the bottom left of the photo? Its owner has yet to arrive here on Day 2.

And that isn't a Day 1 survivor; it's somebody who took advantage of the last-minute $10,000 buy-in to start Day 2 with 72,000 in chips (60 big blinds).

Nearly two full levels have passed without that player showing up, and the 72,000 has been blinded down to 41,600 (26 big blinds).

With around 11,000 already in the pot and the board reading Aspade8spade6club, a player in middle position checks and Layne Flack bets 4,900 from the button.  The player in middle position calls.

The turn brings the Qclub and both players check.  The river is the 4heart and the player in middle position checks once again. Flack bets 12,500, the other player folds, and Flack takes the pot.

Layne Flack - 145,000
