Event 5: In the Money

$360 Black Chip Bounty NL Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 16: 1,500/3,000 with a 500 Ante
Players Remaining: 27 of 209

The field has just been reduced to 27 players, and they’re now in the money in the Bounty as they redraw for seats around the final three tables. Everyone left is guaranteed to earn at least $376.

Scott Zakheim (Davie, FL)
Scott Zakheim (Davie, FL)

Florida pro Scott Zakheim’s 155,000 chips give him one of the group’s biggest stacks and more than 50 big blinds at the current level. Zakheim has more than 20 career cashes at Seminole Hard Rock, and he’s put himself in the hunt for his first trophy here this evening.

Marc Levy (Boynton Beach, FL)

That’s a good stack, but it’s not quite as good as Marc Levy’s 170,000. Levy, like Zakheim, is a semi-professional Florida player with 20+ cashes in this building. Unlike him, however, Levy does have a trophy, with his lone victory here coming in the Seniors event during August’s Hard Rock Poker Open. He’s looking to add a second to the mantel — a blue one this time — and he appears to be first or second in chips at the moment.

Play will continue tonight until a winner is determined.
