$350 + 50 Deepstack NL Hold'em ($100,000 Guarantee)
Players were chatty not too long ago, even making a solid presence felt on Twitter. Now that we've gotten down to eighteen, things have seemed to become very serious. The blinds right now are 10k/20k/3k with a chip average of 596,000. There are a few short stacks in the field, but some players trending upwards are Mike Santoro (Egg Harbor, NJ), Travis Williams (Reading, PA), and Paul Vacchio (Inwood, NY). Earlier chip leader Andy Andrejevic (Miami, FL) has seen his once million chip stack cut by almost half.
