You heard correctly--1:15am, 28 players left

Actually, I heard correctly.

It's Dan Pedersen.

Chip leader, Dan Pedersen, Copenhagen

Just a few moments ago, we condensed to three tables and finally, once the stacks of green started to obscure the players view, raced off the 25s. (See below for some of the big stack approximate counts).

Now in the eleventh hour of play, three of the biggest stacks in the game have converged on one table. Marcel Luske, Padraig Parkinson, and Dan Pedersen will be pushing around their weight as we play for the next two hours.

Indeed, it's been a grueling day for the players. The back muscles are beginning to grow stiff. The tailbones are starting to get sore.

And yet, only 30 seconds remain until play resumes.

Back to the felt.
