EPT9 Monaco Day 1B: Dinner break photo call

Heading into the dinner break it was Noah Schwartz at the top of the chip counts, with 150,000. If things were to stay the same, or at least if Schwartz is able to win just enough to cover the blinds and antes for the next two levels, that would be good enough for the overall chip lead.

Schwartz is a long way ahead of second placed Annette Obrestad who has in the region of 95,000 while Aaron Gustavson, who is updating his own chip count so it must be true, has 92,000, a single "kay" ahead of Andrey Gulyy on 91,000.

A full list of those still in, and their current chip counts, can be found on the live coverage page, with a long list of familiar names still in contention. Among them are this lot.
