An unfortunate redraw put two of the three biggest stacks on the same table.

Chip leader Kyron Jordan (Sebring) and third overall Greg Brannon (Montgomery, AL) are both on Table 40, which will be one of the first tables to break. But, as promised last night in the blog, Brannon is a late arrival because of a work commitment and says he hopes to make it by 3 pm if he’s “lucky.”

“It’s not going to help him, but it won’t hurt him either,” quips Michael Ray, who’s sandwiched between Jordan and Brannon.

The field is just 22 spots from the money as the top 63 earn a min cash of $260, while playing for the top prize of $19,559.
