$100 NLHE $5K to First Place (Re-Entry)
Players Remaining: 18
We are down to the final two tables of nine here in Event 2 of the PPC Aruba Championships, and the players are on a brief ten minute break to grab a drink from the bar or take a stroll outside the Hilton Resort on a beautiful Aruban evening.
As we take out reprieve, some chip stacks are growing faster than others. Among the leaders include PPC champions Steve “Mondo” Fuhrman and Pamela Wilson, as well as two-time Ho-Chunk PPC champion Mike Hampton, all of whom look in good shape to make a final table run.
When the players return, the blinds will be 1,500/3,000 with a 500 chip ante. There are 1,192,000 total chips in play, putting the average stack at about 62,000, which works out to a little more than 20 big blinds average. A low average like that typically leads to lots of action, and add to that the fact that with eighteen remaining but only fourteen places paid, the final stretch run down to the final table is sure to be an exciting one!
