The players are on a 15-minute break and the late registration period will be over when the next level resumes.
Rep Porter, Shannon Shorr, and defending champ Ryan Laplante were all in line for a new seat assignment as the tournament headed to the break.
There are a lot of big stacks building up early and Kyle Bowker holds one of them. Bowker won his first WSOP bracelet last year in $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Eight or Better.
Some less notable players with big stacks are Michelle Chin and Pat Mattiodo. The two are sitting next to each other with almost 100,000 between the two of them.
Mattioda lost the last hand he played but still had 45,000.
