Money Bubble Approaching

Event 13: $170 + $30 No-Limit Hold'em (2 Re-Entry)

The delay with the official numbers meant that the field got down to a little less than 100 players when they found out that the top 90 would finish in the money. (Though most knew that there more than 900 entries, and assumed that 90 would be where the money started.)

Chipleader Alex Torres

There are 93 players remaining, so hand-for-hand play on the money bubble should begin soon. The blinds have just increased to 4,000-8,000 with a 500 ante, and here are updated chip counts for the notables and chipleaders still alive.

Alex Torres - 286,000
Gina Leone - 240,000
Bobby Cheung - 232,000
Andre Boyer - 158,000
Paul Spitzberg - 140,000
Tommy K - 118,000
Mike "Little Man" Sica - 118,000
Mike Moran - 78,000
Gary "Lindell" King - 72,000
Luke Smith - 69,000
Mike LaTour - 33,000

Tommy K had just doubled up with 9c9s against Luke Smith's 7h7s on a board of 8c5c5d5s4d to push him up over the 100,000-chip mark.
