Nicholas Mahabee with Cake

Nicholas Mahabee  (Miami, FL) is in the money and celebrating  with a big piece of cake from Rise bakery. He’s got a healthy stack and is poised for a deep run.

Also making the money is Curtis DeHart (Melbourne, FL) who didn’t play a hand today.

DeHart was a no-show, but with 65k blinded his way into the money. He even jumped into the second pay level, and was one spot away from the third, with an 82nd place finish for $266.

Returning short stack Matt Ball (Tampa, FL) wasn’t as fortunate. He doubled his 12k early, but it wasn’t enough to survive. Ball is a Seminole Hard Rock Tampa regular who we featured earlier this year as the area’s #1 Dad.
