With the oreo-colored 50,000-denomination chips now defunct, the tournament directors have replaced all of them with the yellowy-beige 250,000-denomination chips we mentioned earlier in the day.

That's Why They Call It the Monster Stack

A total of 79 million in 250,000-denomination chips have been placed on the table with Joseph McKeehen possessing 53 million of them, and Hugo Pingray holding 26 million of them.

With the new 250,000-denomination chips now providing a contrast with the green 100,000-denomination chips, players should have no problem identifying the bets and raises going forward (the major reason why they were brought in earlier in the tournament).
