Event 7: First To a Million

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Level 23:  Blinds 10k/20k/3k

During the previous level:

Vladimer Tsitlidze, who started the day as the chip leader, has been eliminated in 51st place.  He’ll collect $645 for his efforts.

Kenneth Norman and Ginny Smythe got to the river with a board of AhTd6s9dJc.  Ginny checked and Kenneth bet 90k.  After some thought, Ginny released her hand.

“Did you have an Ace?” she asked.  “I had top two, ” he replied, “no one likes to fold to me”.

With that pot, Kenneth, who started the day second in chips, chipped up to over 1 million and is the clear chip leader.
