Mike Silva

Another walk among the tables during break found a nice group of players with big piles of chips.

Mike Silva was tops after six levels, leading the pack with 158,900 and Kevin Blewitt was close behind, followed by Tony March, Forrest Raleigh, and David Pham.

Mike Silva – 158,900 (159 bb)
Kevin Blewitt – 152,900 (153 bb)
Tony March – 149,000 (149 bb)
Forrest Raleigh – 140,200 (140 bb)
David Pham – 136,400 (136 bb)

AJ Kelsall was not on our list at the break, but he has our attention now. Hassan Hakim called us over with the promise of a new chip leader and he was correct; Kelsall is now stacked up to 172,000 and the new top stack.
