Play wrapped up with 569 players left (9 short of getting into the money).
Tim Phan is by far the chip leader, with around 650k. His stack is seriously ridiculous. He’s sitting at Sam Farha’s table, and the two keep taking swings at pots and verbal jabs at each other.
Chip Reese was eliminated around place #580 when his nut flush got crushed by a boat on the river.
Defending champ Greg Raymer is among the chip leaders, with about 350k. Also moving up is Michael “The Grinder” Mizarchi, with around 225k.
Others very likely to cash include Phil Ivey, Mike Matusow, Clonie Gowen, Howard Lederer, Minneapolis Meehan, Layne Flack, Paul Darden, Dutch Boyd, John Juanda, Matthew Hilger, Dustin “Neverwin” Woolf, and Lee Watkinson.
