Event 1A: Rackin’ & Rollin’

Level 12: Blinds 800/1,600/200

Herbert Woodbery & Wally MaddahWoodbery & Maddah Moving to a New Table

Eliminations are fast and furious with one player saying, “even a blind squirrel finds a nut,” when his short stack gets a knockout with A5 against his opponent’s A6 after flopping a straight.

20 players remain, including Poker Room regulars Herbert Woodbery (Orlando) and Wally Maddah (Tampa), which means the field is getting dangerously close to 15% remaining (13 players) of the 88 entries. It looks like play may have to stop before the scheduled 14 levels.
