Nigel Murray

Flight E players returned from their first break of the day and the entry count jumped over 300 while they were away. There are still eight levels, plus two breaks, for players to come down to the ballroom to join the big crowd and push the prize pool higher.

SHRP regular Nigel Murray was the first break chip leader with 73,000 and enough to give him a little extra time on break. Adam Hamby came back to a second place stack with Norman Guigui, Tuan Nguyen, and 2014 Coco Poker Open Heads-Up Champ Antonio Campbell rounding out the top five.

There’s still plenty of poker to go and a lot of time for others to catch them.

Nigel Murray – 73,000 (243 bb)
