Event 1 Flight G: Still in Contention

$400 Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry)
$1,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure
Level 11:  1,500/2,500 with a 2,500 ante
Flight G Players Remaining:  288 of 886

Colby Covington

The Flight G field is quickly shrinking down and now occupies only half of the Event Center with 288 players remaining at 32 tables. The other half will fill back up when Flight H gets underway at 5 pm.

Among those still in contention, we found Colby Covington, Karl Manouchakian, Black Whittington, Michael Laake, Michael Newman, and Carlos Loving.

Known primarily as an MMA champ, Covington also has some nice scores at the poker table. Last summer in Hollywood, he finished seventh out of 7,703 entries in their opening SHRPO event (the biggest field in state history) and followed that up with a win in the $1,100 Pot Limit Omaha 8 tournament.
