Huge field 113,000 players, wow. This must have had last at least 8 or 9 hours, if not more.

Not only giving a new name but also raising up the guaranteed price pool from 250k to 1 million. And you can buy in for $11. I guess these are the reasons why such a hugh amount of players joined in, dreaming about make it to final table.
