$2400 Main Event (Re-Entry)
Level 1: 50/100
Total Entries: 72
The Main Event is only a few hands into the first level, and already some of last year’s final table competitors have deviated from the mean with chip stacks.
Stock up: Marshall Tarzy. Last year’s ninth-place finisher at the 2015 PPC Main Event final table has already picked up a few medium-sized pots. The Maryland native has several excellent PPC finishes to his name in additoon to last year’s final table appearance, including a fourth-place finish in the 2015 Atlantic Coast Championship for $16,289 in April 2015. Marshall’s off to a nice start in the Main, up to over 35,000 within the first orbit.
Stock down: Danny Lobato. Danny’s coming off some stellar finishes as his most recent results, with back-to-back runner-ups in Summer Deep Stack Poker Series Tampa Event 1 and Fall Deep Stack Poker Series Tampa Event 1 for $17,608 and $25,839 respectively. He’s also the PPC Aruba Main Event’s reigning runner-up, earning him $62,480 one year ago. But he’s off to a rocky start here, after losing about 10,000 of the starting 25,000 in the first few hands.
