After 2 levels of play there are only 126 players left. Play should slow down considerably as we approach the money. With 99th place paying $16,000 and many of these players having qualified for small amounts, making the money becomes important.

I was walking around looking for chipleaders when I found Devon Miller, who looked to have over $140,000 and the chip lead. As I walked by he got involved in a hand that was raised preflop and three bet on the turn. His QQ lost to AA and he now has about $100,000.
Lonnie Stout, from Riverside, CA was involved in a dune buggy accident that left him a quadriplegic. He recently explained to the camera crew onboard that playing poker online has contributed to helping him regain some of his motor skills. Lonnie seems like a nice guy with an interesting story who won his way onto the cruise in a $30 Qualifier, and at the break sits with over $100,000.
