After seeing the elimination of 4 players in the first level of play on Day 8, cards are back in the air for the 2nd level with the blinds at 80k/160k and a 20k ante. *Almonds Anyone?* Coming out of the break the floor introduced the almond chips that are worth T250,000. The next color will be mint, so I guess we will have to stick with the almond name. *More Eliminations* Coming back from the break, in one of the first few hands at the outer table Robert Pisano was eliminated in 23rd place.
