Missing Chipleader
The chipleader hasn’t returned from dinner break yet, but their stack can still weather the blinds for a very long time.

A scan of the field during the break turned up three players with at least 200K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

1.  Still at Dinner?  –  220,300  (220 bb)
2.  Blair Hinkle  –  217,400  (217 bb)
3.  Frank Funaro  –  200,400  (200 bb)

It’s been nearly 20 minutes since play resumed after dinner, and the chipleader still hasn’t returned. In the meantime, the player in the room with the biggest stack coming back from dinner is Blair Hinkle.

Registration remains open with unlimited re-entries until the start of Level 9, around 9:15 pm, and Day 1B begins tomorrow at 11:00 am.
