Ryan Hogan

Flight B of May Deep Stack Poker Series Event 1 came to an end with 53 players advancing to Day 2. Ryan Hogan was among the chip leaders late in the day and his 638,000 is good enough for the overall lead with one more flight to go.

Raul Jimenez, Emberson Pieretti, Kobi Ribak, and Myung Choi round out the top five from Flight B.

A full list of chip counts will be posted as soon as it is available.

Ryan Hogan – 638,000

Level 14 is here and that means time is running out to spin up a big stack for Day 2. There are 62 players remaining of the starting 330 entries and we should lose a few more before they bag up at the end of the level.

We will post the leaders and updated chip counts once the day is complete.

Ory Hen

The clock is ticking closer to the end of the night and two dangerous players are moving up the counts.

Ory Hen and Raminder Singh have 12 major Hollywood titles between them and even more from in the Poker Room. Hen’s stack is up to 299,500 while Singh sits with 230,000 late in the day.

Event 1 Day 1B: Guarantee Doubles Up

Level 12: 1,000/2,000 with a 2,000 ante
Day 1B Entries:  328

Before Level 12 came to an end, we had entry 328 take a seat in Flight B to put the combined total at 599 for Event 1 so far. That is good enough for the prize pool to climb over $200,000 with time left this evening to join plus a full Flight C starting tomorrow at 10 am.

Raul Jimenez

The last break of the day came to an end and players returned to their seats to play the last three levels of Flight B.

Defending champ Hector Pacheco leads the field with 499,000 with Ryan Hogan in second with 355,500. Sitting to Hogan’s left, Raul Jimenez is making a move to join them and returned to a stack worth 309,000.

Ryan Hogan

We have a new leader in the room and it’s the previously mentioned Ryan Hogan. Our fifth place finisher in this tournament last year built his stack up to 335,500 to hold the late lead.

The second biggest belongs to someone familiar. Hector Pacheco, defending champ, is up to 311,000 and it looks like a chunk of that came from previous leader Jay Romano who is down to 130,000.

Event 1 Day 1B: “Hollywood” in Hollywood

Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson

The Flight B entry count is on the verge of topping 300 for the day and the prize pool is closing on $200,000 for a double guarantee.

We found NFL legend Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson in the field, trying to add some hardware. While he is not the most decorated poker player in the field, that would be Phil Hui, he has one thing no one else in the room can claim. A Super Bowl ring.

Henderson was a linebacker on the Dallas Cowboys who won the Super Bowl in 1978.

Event 1 Day 1B: Jay Romano Still on Top

Jay Romano

Players returned from their dinner break and cards are back in the air. They will play six more levels today, with a break in the middle, before bagging up for Day 2.

Jay Romano is doing his best to go coast-to-coast this afternoon, holding the chip lead throughout the day and he’s still up top. In fact, both our two stacks at the second break are still the top two. Romano leads the field with 296,000 while Emberson Pieretti is next in line with 217,500.
