Basically no so-called “Internet” at the Rio today so we’re a little behind on posts.
One quick update before we start photo dumping: going into dinner break, Frenchy McFrencherstein Guillaume Darcourt held the big stack for most of the day, just south of a milli.
He’s still among the top chip counts, but it appears Patrick Poirier of New York has taken over the lead, with just north of a milli.
However, like fluids, these chip counts are pretty fluid and changing rapidly.
A little over 1,000 players remain as of 8:45pm PT. Some notables still in the field include but are certainly not limited to Kevin Saul (650k), Blair Hinkle (620k), Ben Lamb (647k), Shannon Shorr (425k), Daniel Negreanu (230k), and Phil Hellmuth (160k).
