Kevin Greene and Scott Levitt
Kevin Greene (left) and Scott Levitt have both made incredible comebacks to get this far in Event 1.

A short-stacked player is all in UTG+1 with 10d7d, and he needs to improve to stay alive against the AdJh of Scott Levitt, who is under the gun.

The board came 9c9s2s4h3h, and Levitt won the pot with his ace to eliminate his opponent.

Scott Levitt  –  1,020,000  (51 bb)

Levitt says he was down to a single 5K chip during Level 12 of Day 1, with the blinds at 1K-2K, but he came back to finish the day with 133,000. He’s been doing well today, already in the money and now with more than one million in chips.

When hearing the story, Kevin Greene spoke up to share a similar story, where he was knocked down to 8,000 before the first break today, with the blinds at 3K-6K. But he mounted a comeback as well, survived the Money Bubble, and now he’s just shy of a million chips himself.

Kevin Greene  –  950,000  (48 bb)

The overall chipleader still appears to be Raminder Singh with nearly 1.6 million, and here are a couple other big stacks:

Raminder Singh  –  1,580,000  (79 bb)
Dan Suied  –  1,050,000  (53 bb)
Bob Mather  –  925,000  (46 bb)
