We are still eight handed in Event 1. Nothing notable with the exception of Kimani McKoy taking a big pot off of Lou White with a river 1.5 million bet on a complete bluff. We’ll provide updated chip counts on the break in about 30 minutes.
It didn’t take long for Event 2 to finish – under 7 hours total time to be precise. In the end, it was Lance Goldenberg who ended up the victor taking home $5,377 for his efforts. “This is my first ever tournament win,” said Goldenberg, a smile beaming from cheek to cheek. When asked what he was going to do with the money he explained that it was perfect timing because he was moving to Colorado for a job and this would make the move much easier for him. Congratulations on the win Lance, keep playing hard!

Bret Grebow hung on for a long time with a short stack even saying he didn’t order a cup of coffee because he thought for sure he would be leaving soon. He even got his money in good with A-9 but could not dodge his opponent’s Q-J that hit a jack. An excellent 11th place finish for Mr. Grebow.
