Play has stopped for the day in the Highstakes High Roller with 57/136 entries bagging up chips – but registration remains open until the start of Level 11 tomorrow. The possessor of the biggest stack tonight is one Gary McCoy, pictured glass in hand courtesy of your blogger’s iPhone (it’s late, and we gave the photographers permission to go to the bar/home to their families some time ago). McCoy has bagged up 201,500, the only player to breach the 200k mark at the end of the night.
Other big stacks of note include those of Dara O’Kearney, Andrew Hulme, Yucel “Mad Turk” Eminoglu and Fraser McIntyre; also still in the running on more modest stacks are Andrew Hedley, Dominik Nitsche and Alex Peffly. Full chip counts will magically appear in the “Live Data” bit very shortly, and we’ll be reconvening for Day 2 tomorrow at 1pm. See you then.
