LAPT Vina del Mar: Alive at dinner

When tournament director Mike Ward announced we would halt play when we reached 63 players, we didn't think we would threaten that number for some time. However, the way things have been going all afternoon, 63 seems like an easy number to hit.

We've lost nearly half the field in the first six levels of the day. At this hour it appears Bolivia's Eduardo Zalaquett is our chip leader. He sits on nearly 50,000 chips.
