As the first half of the 2017 Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open nears a close, two players stole the spotlight on Tuesday.
Ryan Galpern won the $360 Six-Max No Limit Hold’em event for $6,480 and Jeffrey Fogel bagged up the overall chip lead in the $570 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em.
Fogel finished the fourth and final starting flight of the event with 315,000. He will be the only person returning for Day 2 above the 300,000-chip threshold.
There are 119 players returning on Wednesday at 1 p.m. to play down to a winner. It is the only trophy event running and all of the attention in the tournament area will be focused on that event playing to a winner.
