The pace is slow this afternoon in the Event Center. Championship players are in no hurry to get frisky with their stacks and we lost only two tables before they hit a new level.
Karl Manouchakian is doing his part to get the field closer to the money. He sent a player out with his queens and Manouchakian (who sits atop the leaderboard for most cashes in our tournaments) is up to 363,000.
Blinds increased to 3,000/6,000 with a 6,000 ante and the average stack is about 205,000 (34 bb).
