The call to shuffle up and deal came with a few announcements from Tournament Director Mike Ward.
Apparently the plan today is to play down to just three tables remaining.
If they get close when the tournament reaches the 18th level, they'll stop play then. They've cancelled the dinner break as well, and without that, they should reach Level 18 around 8 p.m., giving players the chance to enter the 3rd Annual Chad Brown Charity Tournament, a $200 event with unlimited $100 reentries that starts at that time.
If there are still six tables in play at 8 p.m., Ward says they will play on.
