There were an impressive number of Team PokerStars Pros and Team PokerStars Online players in the field today. Some, like Martin Hruby and Richard Toth took early baths but most made the dinner break. However, since then Mickey Petersen, Dale Philip and Juan Manuel Pastor have all busted.
But as we enter the last level of the day that still leaves a number of players proudly sporting the red spade. There are currently 350 players left and the average stack is a shade under 53,500.
Marcin Horecki – The Team PokerStars Pro looks to be one of the chip leaders as he has a stack of 200,000. He was up as high as 240,000 an hour ago.

Christophe De Meulder – The Belgian has more than twice the average as he’s currently sat behind a wall of chips that total around 135,000. And even if you can’t read Flemish I think you can understand how he got his chips.

Matti De Meulder – The other De Meulder twin also has an above average stack as he’s got 70,000. He made a spot on prediction before play started.

Alex Kravchenko – You wouldn’t believe it but the Russian is sat to the direct left of Matti De Meulder, he’s got a slightly below average stack of 48,000. He and De Meulder are on the same table as Mick Graydon
Henrique Pinho – The Portuguese player is going along nicely on 57,500.
– We’re into the last level of the night
– Notable exits over the last level or so include: Dale Philip (see below), Matej Marinovic, Sam Cohen, Anton Wigg, Jeff Sarwer, Kimmo Kurko, Hana Soljan, Sofia Lovgren, Steve Watts and David Vamplew.
