Calais Campbell
Calais Campbell has made the NFL Pro Bowl six times since 2014.

The next hand after Rainer Kempe doubled up, Calais Campbell, who is a six-time Pro Bowl player in the NFL, got it all in from the small blind for 27,000 with 5h5d, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Kempe’s AhQh.

The board came 8h3h2c10dKc, and the pocket fives held up for Campbell to win the pot and double up in chips, knocking Kempe down to just two big blinds.

Calais Campbell  –  57,000  (38 bb)
Rainer Kempe  –  3,000  (2 bb)

With approximately 160 players remaining from an unofficial field of 413 entries, the average chip stack is about 51,500 (34 big blinds). The official prizepool should be released soon, and we expect it to be worth more than $800,000.
