Event 15: Slow Sledding

$1,650 Eight-Handed No Limit Hold ‘Em (Single Re-Entry)
Level 12: 600/1200 100 Ante

The eleven remaining players could be in for a long afternoon.  Only Roman Valerstein and Zo Karim started under 30,000 in chips and with Valerstein essentially doubling up a short time ago, the blinds won’t be putting much pressure on most of these players anytime soon.

Chip leader John McDonald has done his job to start picking up two of the biggest hands to start the afternoon and pushing his stack to nearly 300,000 to open up his lead.
