Event 8: Wasting No Time

$560 Buy-In Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 16: 2k/4k/500 ante

Patience is a virtue, unless you’re a short-stack a good distance from the money bubble. Dealers are calling out “seat open!” on a regular basis as several tables have already been broken. The unofficial number count on the tournament information board shows 504 players remaining midway through the first level of the day but it’s likely a few less than that.

Eric Piderit was one of the early exits when he busted his 55,000-sized stack on the very first hand of play. He was cruising in the early going of Flight 1A but Piderit’s tournament began going downhill shortly after he appeared here in the live updates. No blame was accredited but the regular here at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open will be back to take another shot at another game.
