I steadily chipped up from 13,750 to a high of 87K before losing several small pots to get down to 43,500k. We're playing down to 500 people today (first half of day 2) from the 769 remaining of 1637 starters. They will repeat this process tomorrow for the second half of the field, going to Friday with about 1000 players left from the starting 8778.
I'm up 30k on the day and now have almost an average stack and over 40 times the big blind so I'm pretty happy overall with the day so far. We resume at 8:30 pm Pacific and you can follow the progress live at www.cardplayer.com
