Event 12: In the Money

$170 + $30 Deep Stack Double Play NLH (2 Re-entry)

They busted the money bubble and players were given a break.  100 players remain and all are guaranteed to leave with at least $426.

That includes Shawn Anthony Smith, Jr, who never showed up for day two. He's now accomplished a 'Vinny Vinh', who is infamous for cashing twice in the WSOP by never showing up for the following day after accumulating a decent-sized stack.

 Play has resumed and the mood in the room seems much lighter now that some of the pressure is off.

Blinds are now 8k/16k with 2k antes.

Shawn Smith was the first player eliminated.  He finished in 100th place, earning $426.
