On your marks, get set, GO GO GO!

Moments after the dinner bell chimed, players were scrambling out of the casino and filtering into the streets of Soho in order to feast on all varieties of local delicacy.

Spotted: Antonio Esfandiari in the middle of Leicester Square– long gone from today’s tournament – on the hunt for something to eat. Probably pizza – Don’t worry I am half Italian so I can enforce Italian stereotypes. Oh, but wait he's not Italian is he… hmmm always confuses me that one.

Anyhow, now that all the players have finally pissed off, I can give you an idea of stack sizes. Some of the big stacks are as follows:

Carsten Girst: 29,000 - Chris Ferguson: 27,000 - David Stockings: 26,000 - Nicolas Levi: 23,000 - Ganesh Bathmanathan: 22,000 Markus Ristola: 20,000

Still in the run and, unsurprisingly, doing rather well is crowd favourite Phil Ivey. He remains in the hunt for his third gold bracelet of the year with just above 10,000 chips. Jeff Lisandro, who has already completed this feat, is on the prowl for his 4th bracelet of the year and has about 12,000 to his name. John Juanda is also still in the mix with about 9,000.

Action will resume at level 7 with blinds of 150-300 after the hunger beasts have been satisfied and will continue until level 10 or until only 40 players remain – whichever comes first.
