"A Round of Applause
Play was halted so that a few announcements could be made. Dealers sat still, no action on the floor. Players were instructed not to leave the playing area upon being eliminated without an escort to the payout area. After this, floor managers were asked to get into position. Then it was declared that 865 players remain and the crowd erupted with applause (and so did some of the short-stacked players). The final announcement was delivered enthusiastically: "Shuffle up and deal!""
