$2,400 NLHE Main Event (Re-Entry)
Level 14: 1,500/3,000/500 Antes
Players Remaining: 45
As the Main Event shrinks down to the final five tables, let’s take a look at the players in the event with the largest chip stacks. As a quick shorthand, we’ll focus on the players who currently have at least two full stacks (of 20) of yellow 5,000 chips, meaning that they have at least 200,000 in chips.
At Table 17, which will be the Main Event final table, Tim Brice continues to lead the way. But several of his tablemates, including big name pros Christian Harder and Steve Karp, aren’t far behind.
Table 18 features the current leader in the race for 2016 PPC Player of the Year James Sloat. Former Player of the Year John Ott recently doubled up to remain on the table, so the title isn’t in the bag just yet for the Maryland pro.
Table 16 nor Table 15 features any stacks surpassing 40 of the 5,000 chips, though Ronnie Bardah is fast approaching that mark.
The entire tournament is slanted towards Table 19, which features four of the biggest stacks in the room: Dorian Rios in seat 3, Stephen Deutsch in seat 5, Ryan van Sanford in seat 6, and William Beer in seat 8. The quartet all have well over 200,000 in tournament chips.
The final big stack belongs to Joan Sandoval. Sandoval has well over 400,000 in tournament chips, and doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon. Her nearest competitor on Table 14 has about 40% of her massive pyramid of chips.
