Level 18 (5,000/10,000/1,000)
Total SugarRush Challenge Entries: 634
Players Remaining: 43
Chip Average: 378,000
In the nearly two full levels since the money bubble broke, the SugarRush Challenge Day 2 field has been nearly cut in half as the next break nears. From the 80 players that were left midway through Level 16, only 43 remain. With the increasing blinds and growing pay jumps, it will be interesting to see if this pace continues once the next level starts.
Players will be on break shortly and then will return to play three more 45-minute levels before taking a 60-minute dinner break. Once the field is down to 27 players, a three-table redraw will take place. Given the current pace of bustouts, it will not be surprising to see that figure hit before the dinner break.
The SugarHouse blog will return at the start of the next level with another rundown of the chip leaderboard.
