While the $250 Seniors take their time to refuel for the later levels in the tournament, we are posting the current chip counts by tables. Our three chip leaders are feeling shy or superstitious, so they have asked to not post their name or picture until they win.

With more than half the field with less than the average chip stack, the shovefest will begin shortly.
