Level 8 (500/1,000/100)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 373
Total RG Main Event Day 1C Entries: 117
The chip leaders from the first two flights have waited until the later levels to make their presence felt but Nick Burris failed to get the memo. Not only is Burris the first player over 100,000, he is also the first player over 150,000. Burris has built from the gun and hasn't stopped on his way to 165,000.
Burris knows a thing or two about tournament poker as exampled by his WSOP Circuit ring and over $91,000 in earnings. It will be difficult for the field to catch up to Burris, but nothing is out of the questions based on what has transpired over the first two flights.
The RG Main Event field is soon to go on the second break of the night and the registration desk will be closed shortly behind it. Once the figure for final entrants is tallied, the prize pool total will be calculated and posted on the RG Blog.
