Michael De Leon, Final 18 chip leader

Entering with the largest stack is Michael De Leon with 1,733,500. De Leon put on a very strong performance in Day 2 to earn himself the top spot in the chip rung. De Leon is a highly recognizable player in the local circuit with numerous deep finishes in major events held in the country. Two months ago, he finished 15th out of 599 entries at the Metro 2M Summer Event and is in good shape to take it much further this time around.

Also sitting with stacks over seven-digits are Victor Miranda with 1,259,000, Bonifacio Mondalo with 1,051,000, and Marvin Cerbito with 1,040,000. These players may not be as packed with cashes as the leader De Leon but are strong contenders for the title nonetheless. Others making the cut are John Clyde Tan (Day 1A leader), Hernan Jaybee Villa with 445,000, and Vamerdino Magsakay with 440,000.

Final day action begins at 3pm. Blinds kick off at Level 25: 12,000-24,000 ante 4,000. Blinds increase every 40 minutes. We will have live updates running throughout the day for everyone to keep up with the action. Just click the Live Updates link from time to time.
