The number on the board has marched its way up to 136 runners, topping the field size for this event last year. That's slightly misleading, since it was a $10,000 buy-in last year, but it's certainly respectable. What's more, the field that has gathered for this stud event is packed with notables.
The best players in the world are with us in the Tan section tonight, and it's quite a privilege to watch them play.
Registration will remain open through the upcoming 30-minute dinner break.
