Nick Pupillo leads the way as the final nine are set here in Kansas City. They'll come back at noon tomorrow to play down to a winner on the TV set.
The play was fast and furious for the 48 players who advanced to Day 2 today in Kansas City. It took just over 6 hours to play down to the final nine.
The final nine players will return tomorrow to play down to a winner on the TV table. Public spectators are welcome and viewers at home can tune into twitch.tv/hptpoker to watch. The final table will kick off shortly after noon. The stream will begin 20-30 minutes after.
The state of Missouri does not allow hole cards to be shown on the live stream. Friends, family, and fans will have to wait until the one-hour episode airs on TV in a few months to see those cards.
The remaining nine players are guaranteed a payday of $10,336 and tomorrow's winner will take home $94,713.
