We’ve seen some top players depart here today, probably to return to play tomorrow, and plenty of others are still in there fighting for a Day 2 berth. 

Kevin Allen (pictured) is out of Day 1E, joined by Julian thew on the rail after the latter got his last 20,000 into the middle on a Q-J-x flop, holding [KdJh], but his opponent had flopped a pair of queens and held to send him to the cash games until Day 1F. 

Chaz Chattha managed to find a nice situation just before the final break, holding [KhKs] and calling off an opponent’s all-in shove with [8d8c] pre-flop to add another 25,000 to his pile. Chattha now has 106,000 with two levels remaining tonight.
