Bobby Rosetta

Rosetta, 1B Chip Leader – 2nd Overall

Bobby Rosetta (Tampa via Philadelphia, PA) is the chip leader of the third and final flight with 199,600.

“I was never above the (overall) chip leader,” says Rosetta, who will take the second biggest chip stack into Day 2. “It was slow and steady and more of a grind,” he says, “No big hands.”

20 players bagged and tagged for the night, which sets the overall remaining number of players at 52.  Kirk Adams (St. Pete Beach, FL) returns as the chip leader with 206,100.

The field returns at noon Saturday, just 20 spots from the money. The top 32 get paid as they play for the $41,844 first prize.

“I feel pretty comfortable,” adds Rosetta, who works in IT and plays Hard Rock Tampa cash games mostly on weekends.
