It came , and it checked to the raiser. Snider continued for what looked like 15,000, Miskovic moved all in for 65,500, and Tarich folded. Snider spent a couple minutes in the tank, considering the decision for about half his remaining stack. Eventually, he folded, and Miskovic won the pot with no showdown.

The Purple Chip Bounty event had a huge turnout and it easily surpassed its $100,000 guarantee early in the day. They pushed the combined prize pool over $180,000 between the regular and bounty prize pool for some nice payouts.
There were 122 entries in the tournament and they made it down to the final table ten before they paused action at the end of Day 1. Those ten players return today to play it down to a champion.
The stacks are deep and the structure is slow, players will have plenty of room to make moves. Keith Morrow returns with a big chip lead with Manny Tarich, his closest competitor, sitting 90,000 behind. Gavin O’Rourke is the shortest stack but he still has 19 big blinds to push around.
They’ll come back at 2pm and play out the final table in the front of the ballroom.
It could be a long day and the Purple Chip Bounty champ will have to work hard to take home the trophy.
