Day 1 of the $10,300 High Roller Finale just wrapped up and the clock shows 61 entries at the end of eight levels of play. Only 33 players bagged chips but late registration and the reentry period is still open until the start of level 11. The tournament will continue at 1 pm local time and will play down to a winner.

The day started with eight players divided over two tables but the field quickly grew. Plenty of notable names and familiar faces entered soon after. A couple of the players that managed to bag include Cassio Kiles (5,665,000), Brunno Botteon De Albuquerque (4,305,000), and James Romero (3,000,000).

Others that found a bag are Kevin MacPhee (2,800,000), Kenny Hallaert (2,005,000), Marvin Rettenmaier (1,550,000), and Jack Sinclair (1,380,000). Others made it through with less than the 1,000,000 starting stack and they are Marty Mathis (875,000), Francisco Benitez (495,000), and Mike Del Vecchio (285,000).

Late registration and reentries are still possible for the first hour and a half when they continue tomorrow and play down to a winner. The first blind level will be level 9: 15,000/30,000 and a button ante of 30,000. Check back in with us tomorrow for the conclusion of this event.
