After that quick spurt of action, the players were probably happy to take a short break from the tables. The 1K chips were colored off and cards are back in the air with blinds at 10,000/15,000 with a 15,000 big blind ante. The average stack is now 636,000 (42 bb).

Brian Trieglaff moved all in for 84,000 and it folded to James “Ping” Kerr in the big blind. He called and Trieglaff was the player at risk.
Trieglaff was in great shape but the board gave Kerr the queen-high straight. Trieglaff was sent out in 19th place, Kerr moved over 1,000,000 and tournament staff broke Event 7 down to its last two tables.

Rodney Turvin continued a nice couple of days, making the money in Event 7 only a few days after finishing fifth in the $1,650 tournament. He could not match that result and went out in 22nd place while Mitchell King moved up to 826,000.

Matthew Tziris was eliminated shortly after the money burst to trigger a three-table redraw near the end of the level. Tony March went out in 27th place and the 26 remaining players took a break as the 500 denom purple chips come out of play and the 25K chips are introduced.

Brian Trieflagg opened to 12,000 from under the gun, Allauddin Khan called in the cutoff, and Wayne Daley called on the button. Dani Mae moved all in from the small blind for 63,000 and the big blind folded.
Trieglaff moved all in over the top to get folds from Khan and Daley.
“You have it?” Trieglaff asked.
“Yep,” was Mae’s response.
Mae was ahead for her needed double and had no problems with the board.
“That’s payback,” Mae joke/needled Trieglaff. The two of them sparred several times late yesterday to drop Mae from a huge lead to short stack.

Event 7 is the last big warmup before the WPTDeepStacks Tampa Main Event kicks off tomorrow and Day 2 is here. It had a $570 buy-in and the 279 cleared the $100,000 guarantee to put $139,500in the prize pool.
There are 44 players still in contention at the restart but only 28 of them will get paid later today.
Tom Nguyen bagged the overall lead in Flight C and it looked like 418,000 was going to be a tough number to beat but Scott Swatscheno cruised right by in Flight D. He returns as the chip leader with 441,000 in his bag.
Blind levels increase to 40-minutes long from this point forward with a break every three levels.

The last break of the day is complete and Flight C dropped to two tables almost immediately upon their return, plus a bonus KO to get them to 17 players remaining. The math said Flight C should bag around 13 players so we’ll see if things slow down over the last three levels.
Dani Mae continues to lead and it’s still not that close. Jennifer Haselton, Woodrow Pass, and Wayne Daley are still among those still in the game and trying to advance to Day 2.
