All the players started in the money and the action was fast and furious nearly all day long. There were 186 sat at the tables when level 12 began and two hours later at the first break there were 107 left. That would drop to 67 at the second break and there would be just 33 remaining at the dinner break.
Kyle Cartwright, who has 5 WSOP Circuit rings, is the overnight chip leader bagging up 973,000.
Daniel Dizenzo, who was busting players for fun towards the end of the night, is hot on his heels in second place with 912,000.
Third place is Ylon Schwartz who carries 832,000 into Day 2. Schwartz is a chess master and finished 4th in the WSOP Main Event in 2008.
Canada's Miguel Proulx started the day as chip leader but he finished 56th. Andrew Lichtenberger was involved in a lot of pots early on but he would bust out in 46th place. Mark Radoja began the day in good shape hunting his third WSOP bracelet, but couldn’t get a whole lot going and fell in 29th place. The U.K.’s bracelet hope in the field Niall Farrell had a good run but he eventually fell just short in 23rd place.
