Commencing Thursday was event 40, the $5,000 buy-in Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em, which predictably attracted a slew of 732 (2010: 568 entries) mainly professional players, among them Matt Graham, Jeffrey Papola, Eric Baldwin, Andy Seth, Billy Kopp, Simon Watt, Isaac Haxton, Lex Veldhuis, Antonio Esfandiari, Alex Gomes, Joe Cada, Bertrand Grospellier, Chad Brown, Andy Black and Vanessa Selbst.
Getting on toward midnight Thursday the competition was well into level 10 on the first day's action with just 213 players left, headed by Randy Dorfman (225,000) chased by Daniel Negreanu (144,000) and a top ten chip count list that still includes Eugene Todd, Mclean Karr, Matthew Jarvis, Jude Ainsworth, Matt Hawrilenko and Faraz Jaka.
There's plenty of action and potential for excitement remaining in this event as it nears its first day close, with the promise of some very competitive poker going into the second day.
