David Peters started the day as the short stack with just 12 big blinds, but he moved all in on the first two hands to steal the blinds.
Then, in Hand #4, Elio Fox raised from the button to 24,000, Peters moved all in from the small blind, and Fox folded. Peters took three out of the first four pots to reach 184,000 and give himself a bit of a cushion.
David Peters – 184,000 (18 bb)
With five players remaining from a field of 25, the average chip stack is about 625,000 (63 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $97,000.
