NAPT Los Angeles: Day two introduction and seat draw

napt-thumb.jpgThis morning, the breakfast buffet at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, served cantaloupe and pineapple in chunks, rather than the slices it had offered on the previous two days. It's a largely irrelevant observation, banal even, but it allows us to say that today's poker (much like that cantaloupe and pineapple) will be served in almost the same way as the previous two days - but slightly different.

Today we welcome the full remaining field of NAPT Los Angeles to play for the first time together under one roof. There were 314 players combined from the day 1A and day 1B fields, and they'll all file into the Bicycle Casino at 1pm to get day two started. Kim Fredericksen, of Denmark, leads the field with 237,000 - a whisker ahead of Nicholas Grippo and Tom Middleton, who were the top dogs from Friday.

The full chip count is available on the chip count page. Below is the seat draw for day two.
