Tyler McKendry (Thousand Oaks, CA) has taken the chip lead.  He’s up to over 11 million chips and has more than twice as many chips as the second biggest stack.

When I asked how he acquired all those chips, he said “there was a big stack on my left — he doubled me up twice”.  That seat on his left is now vacant.

Tyler came all the way from California to enjoy the tournaments at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open and so far that looks like a good move.
