It appears that last nights 10k warm up did not reach a finish due to a technical problem. The tournament will be cancelled and no qualifiers will go forward to Round 2 from this particular event. Mark is currently unaware of this problem as he is in Tunica and may decide on a seperate ruling when he has all the facts.

Mark has decided to qualify the top 15 players with the largest chips.

I was sitting on a stack of about $55k, so I'm pretty sure I did not make the cut. But just in case, who are the 15???

I DONT THINK THIS IS EVEN CLOSE TO BEING FAIR TOP 15 CHIP STACKS WITH 69 LEFT IS IN NO WAY A GUARANTEE THAT THEY WOULD MAKE THE CUT.NO PROFESSIONAL TOURNAMENT WOULD BE HANDLED THIS WAY ESPECIALLY WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS AT STAKE.THE 69 REMAINING PLAYERS SHOULD BE SCHEDULED TO FINISH THE GAME WITH THE CHIPS THEY HAD AT THE TIME OF THE CRASH.I KNOW THIS CAN BE DONE BECOUSE I SAW IT HAPPEN AT ANOTHER SITE WHEN A TOURNAMET CRASHED AND THERE WAS A PRIZE AT STAKE.I DONT MEAN TO COME OFF LIKE A SORE LOSER I HAD A CHANCE NOT A GREAT ONE BUT I WAS ABOVE CHIP AVERAGE AND WITH THE KINDA CRAPSHOOT THESE GAMES ARE AND THE AMOUNT OF THEM I CAN FIND TIME TO PLAY IN IT MAY HAVE BEEN THE BEST CHANCE I WILL HAVE.IT MAKES FEEL LIKE I SHOULDNT EVEN PARTICIPATE.I KNOW MARKS REAL BUSY WITH THE CONVENTION BUT FOR THOSE OF US WHO CANT BE THERE THIS IS STILL IMPORTANT AND I R4EALLY WISH IT WOULD BE HANDLED DIFFERENT LATER ALTHOUGH NOW THAT THE TOP 15 STACKS ARE IN ROUND 2 I FEEL THE WHOLE THING HAS BEEN TARNISHED BECOUSE YOU CANT BE SURE THEY WOULD BE THERE WITHOUT A FINISHIT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RE SCHEDULED TO BE FINISHED AND IF NOT THAT THEN ALL 69 PROGRESS.
