Event 10: First Million

$300 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack

Blinds: 6k/12k/1k ante

Andres Jara continues to build up his stack and is now the first player with over 1,000,000 in his stack. None of the hands have been very dramatic as he is playing standard big stack poker and pushing around the table.

Chris Lewis continues to keep pace at Table 38 and just picked up a double elimination when he called two all-ins with Th8c on a Ts9d7h flop for top pair and open ended straight draw. His opponents were holding AdKh and QdJs, looking for help. The dealer dropped the Jc leaving his opponents drawing thin. The blanked the river for a big hand.

Lewis followed that up by knocking out Zach Kessler when his AQ rivered an Ace again pocket Queens. The hand moved Lewis to join Jara in the Million Chip Club.

“Get a picture of me so my wife knows I’m eating a salad,” Eric Piderit prompted. In poker related news, he just knocked out a player at Table 41 with Kings versus A-6 to move up to 360,000.
