The main feature table -- located inside the so-called "mothership" -- has been a fairly quiet scene for most of the day, with the surrounding seats mostly empty as the players have mostly wordlessly played through the first almost-four levels.
Defending champ Jonathan Duhamel scored an exciting double-up mid-afternoon, but has slipped over the last couple of hours to a below-average stack. He now sits with about 17,000. Michael DeMichele has been short since early on, and presently is nursing a stack of about 8,500.
Meanwhile, Nathan Amar is the one whose enjoyed the day and early evening the most over there, amassing a stack of about 115,000.
