Championship Day 1B: Bowers Adding to the Lead

$1,650 Winter Poker Open Championship (Re-Entry)
Level 10: 500/1,000/100 Ante

Since sitting back down after dinner break, chip leader Derek Bowers hasn’t looked back. In the short one-and-a-half levels they’ve logged, Bowes has grown his stack to nearly 200,000.

Most recently, the action checked to him on a KcQd2h7s board. He was on the button and bet out what appeared to be just under 11,000. Like clockwork, the other two players in the hand folded and Bowers raked the pot.

He currently holds over 190,000 chips — a number that would be good enough to put him in the top three overall were play to end right now.
