$2,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure
Level 9: 1,000/1,500 with a 1,500 ante
Players Remaining: 300 of 893
After some preflop action, Farid Jattin reraised from the hijack to 17,000, the player on the button moved all in for 33,000, and three-time WPT champion Brian Altman moved all in over the top from middle position for 73,500.
Jattin tanked for a while before he called, and all three players turned over their cards. Here they are in descending order of chip counts:
The board came , and the pocket jacks held up for Jattin to win the pot and eliminate both of his opponents from Day 1A.
Farid Jattin – 250,000 (167 bb)
Brian Altman – Eliminated
With about 350 players remaining from an unofficial Day 1A field of 893, the average chip stack is about 102,000 (68 big blinds). The total prizepool is already worth more than $2.85 million (smashing the $2 million guarantee), plus whatever tomorrow’s field brings on Day 1B.
Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm.
