After 10 hours of action-packed play yesterday, 27 players survived and will return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino to continue their campaign at 2p.m today.

A minimum of $9,657 is guaranteed to all those returning. The plan will surely be to lift the trophy at the end of the night, to be crowned the champion for 2018 and win a gold bracelet, as well as $323,472 in winnings.

All eyes will be on Timur Margolin, who comes back with over half a million in chips. If he can be the last man standing, he will have won his second bracelet this series. It is unlikely to be easy though as standing in his way are Longsheng Tan who bagged 993,000, which is not far off ten percent of the total chips in play. Heng Zhang will also be another worthy contender with 938,000 in front.

The schedule for today is to play down to a winner. Levels will last for 60 minutes and there will be a 15-minute break every two levels. There will also be a 60-minute dinner break after Level 6 (8:30p.m.). All the action will take place in the Miranda room.
