Event 1: Another Batch to the Rail

Nicholas Mahabee

The quick pace continued over Level 17; blinds are up and the field is down with all tables in the Meeting Room broken down into the Grand Ballroom. We have approximately 625 players remaining but that number is fluid depending on the time to write this post.

Nicholas Mahabee helped shrink the field by one. He open-shoved for about 100,000 from early position and David D’Ambruoso called at risk in the big blind for his last 6K.

D’Ambruoso: TcTh
Mahabee: KcQd

D’Ambruoso was ahead in the race for a tiny double but Mahabee paired the Kh8d5d flop to take the lead. The 7c turn and 6s river finished the board to send D’Ambruoso out in 628th place.

Mahabee has some history in these big opening events. He took the top spot in a six-way chop at the $360 Deep Stack Event 1 final table during the 2016 SHRPO series.
