$2,400 NLHE Main Event (Re-Entry)
Level 3: 75/150/25 Antes
Total Entries: 103
We’ve entered Level 4, so blinds have risen to 100/200 and antes to 25 here on Day 1B of the Main Event. As the remaining competitors jockey for position, a few elephantine stacks have begun to grow larger than their table mates.
Tampa’s own Shawn Barnett looks to be leading the flight thus far. He’s won a PPC event already this fall, Event 2 of PPC’s Tampa Bay Downs Fall Classic, and last year at the PPC’s North America Championship Barnett scored a runner-up for $16,938 eighteen months ago. Currently here in Day 1B, Barnett has close to 70,000.
Earlier in the day we stopped by Maroun Akiki’s table in time to see him take down a massive pot with a full house over top pair. He’s continued his winning ways, and sits on close to 65,000.
Among those close behind are Alan Leon and Michael Smith, both of whom have over 50,000.
