Level 23: Blinds 25,000/50,000/5,000 ante
Total Entries: 2,108
Players Remaining: 143
Average Stack: 1.5 million
The parade of players to the payout desk has been steady since the bubble burst. The Almighty 500 players have returned from a break and we got a chance to check out the big stacks:
Daniel Tu – 5.15 million
Nikolaos Platis – 5.08 million
Tyng Low – 4.5 million
‘Lucky’ Lee Kirsch – 4.2 million
Satish Surapaneni – 4.2 million
Anthony Gaerlan – 4 million
Thomas Beccari – 3 million
Lee Kirsch’s luck has apparently kicked in big time. He recently had pocket Aces in three out of five consecutive hands, and that was split between two different tables because he was moved.
One of those hands was against Asher Conniff, who got his last ~2 million in with AK and ran into Lee’s Aces. Asher busted out in 155th place ($859). That hand boosted Lee’s stack beyond 4 million.
