Never mind the chip approximations. John Juanda busted Jason Lester on the first hand of the new level and the players are counting and bagging their chips now, so I'll get the official counts posted when they are ready.
Jason Lester finished in 28th place, earning $16,647. His AK went down in flames to John's A2 when a deuce flopped.
The TD has announced that play will begin at 1pm tomorrow instead of noon due to the late hour, so the final 27 will reconvene then.

Play has resumed. Level 13: 1K ante, 4K/8K blinds. They colored up and removed the purple 500 chips during the break, so the stacks are slightly easier to count. Chip approximations coming...

Break at end of level 12. Players get 15 minutes and I get to count chips.

We're still stuck at 28 players.
Steve Frederick moved all in for 89K after a raise to 18K. Alan Brodsky called and showed pocket Jacks. Steve had AK of diamonds and caught an Ace on the flop. That's all he needed to double up.
On a board of K 6 3 Q T -- all clubs -- Hassan Habib thought Darrell Dicken had checked, so turned up his hand -- 65 with the 5 of clubs for a slight improvement on the board. Darrell proceeded to bet 40,000. After a few seconds thought, Hassan called and Darrell showed 32 with the 2 of clubs -- no improvement on the board. Darrell picked up his 40,000 thinking it was a split pot, but had to give it back as the pot was pushed to Hassan.

Thanh Tran gets all in against Rudy Kretzmeier. Tranh's A Q is ahead of Rudy's AJ of diamonds, until the flop comes 4 J T . He's left with only five outs, any King or Queen that isn't a diamond. Unfortunately, the turn and river are 5 6 and Tranh is done.
Thanh (Thandat) Tran finished in 36th place, earning $16,647.

Anthony Romanello bubbles. Shane Schleger raised to 12K under the gun, then Anthony moved all in for 78,500. Matt Keikoan was on the button and seemed pained, but eventually called. Everyone folded back to Anthony, who showed . Matt was ahead with . The board came giving Matt the full house and sending Anthony away empty handed.
Players are on break as the house collects their IDs, as all remaining 36 players are guaranteed to win at least $16,647. Here's a reminder of the payouts:
Play will continue tonight until 9 more players are eliminated, all of which will receive $16,647. The final 27 will return tomorrow at noon.

Here are some chip approximations from the break:
After the break, Stan Weiss busted Beverley Cheney on a horrible beat. He raised, she re-raised, he moved in, and she called with pocket tens. She was ahead of his pocket 8s, until the board came J 9 7 8 9 giving her a straight, but rivering a full house for him.
Also gone are Jimmy Tran, Keith Sexton, Dayne Baverman, and Tom Schneider. The board says 44 players remain, only 37 get paid.
