As of the break, Murod Shaturaev held the chip lead and was the only stack over 100,000.
That all changed in a recent hand against Elan Chabi. They were heads-up on the turn with a board of and a pot of about 23,000. Elan (button) moved in for 11,800 and Murod (hijack) looked him up. Elan’s had Murod’s out-kicked and Murod was drawing slim to a Queen on the river, or a third 8 to chop the pot.
When the completed the board, Elan’s double-up was sealed and he’s approaching 50,000 chips (100 big blinds). Murod’s stack was cut down to about 85,000, still a comfortable 170 big blinds. That’s why we call this a Deep Stack!
