Event 1: Birnbaum Holding On, Doft Calls for Back-Up

$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Level 10: 500/1000/100 Ante

Two of the more well-known names in the poker community continue to fight on here in Flight 1D.

Well-respected pro Nancy Birnbaum, fatigued from a massive amount of driving  supporting a friend on a final table at another event, is hanging on at 36k.

Meanwhile, poker journalist Mickey Doft has spun his chair around going for a much-needed massage after all of his cross-country travels and currently sits at precisely 59k.  He counted it himself.
