Jean Cloutier, with 33,500 tokens (119th overall) and Marc Aubin not far behind with 28 300 tokens (140th overall) already, the number of participants has been reduced to 239, but it was not enough to reach the bubble: 216 last survivors will reap a minimum $ 2893, while the winner will win over half a million.

At the moment, British Sadan Türker is in the lead, followed closely by Eli Elezra.
