David Moses

The clock is ticking down to get a seat in Flight G, they will take a break in 15 minutes and registration will close when they return at 3:30 pm.

We found a few more travelers in the field who have success in the Sunshine State. David Moses comes to us from South Carolina and he picked up his first career WSOP Circuit ring last winter at our sister room in Coconut Creek.

JP Kolp hails from Lousiana and followed Moses’ suit this past September when he won the WSOPC Coco $400 Monster Stack for a $43K payout.

The Flight G entry count continues to climb at an impressive pace and cruised right over 900 entries with an hour remaining to register. Both the flight count and the total tournament number are good enough to put Event 1 firmly on the all-time top 10 list with a lot of time to move it higher.

Some more familiar faces popped up in the room including former WSOP Ladies Champ Marsha Wolak, WSOP Circuit winner (and two-time Borgata Almighty Stack champ) Greg Fishberg, SHR Tampa regular Jordan Joeckel, and WPTDeepStacks champion Vitor Coelho.

Carlos Bezara

The first break is complete and Flight G picked up another 60 entries during that time. The field will continue to snowball for the next four levels, only coming to a stop when registration closes at 3:30 pm.

We found our two biggest stacks in the room while they were gone. Carlos Bezara had 87,000 after four levels to lead then picked up another 11,000 on the first hand back when he sent an opponent out. Ira Schwartz looks like our second biggest with 81,000 with a handful of players behind him in the high 70Ks.
