Event 1F: Steady Growth Continues; Prize Pool Posted After 10:30pm

Event 1E: $570 Deep Stack, $300K Gtd
Level 2: 50/100 | Structure
Flight F Entries: 83 | Total Entries: 824

With Flight E bagging up alongside it, the Flight F field has continued its upward trend. After cards went in the air with 30 entries, the clock now shoes 83 midway through Level 2. That trend is expected to continue and tournament looks to see about 150 total in the 6pm action by the time all is said and done.

We will post another Flight F update after registration closes and the prize pool is finalized. This will fall sometime after 10:30pm.

Event 1E: Five More Hands; Jim Brinkley Poised to Bag Lead

Event 1E: $570 Deep Stack, $300K Gtd
Level 14: 1,200/2,400/300 | Structure
Flight E Players Remaining: 53/216

Jim Brinkley

Jim Brinkley recently enjoyed a huge double-up when his Qd9d bested the KhKd of an unknown opponent. The two got it in on a Td6d2h7d turn and Brinkley had the villain drawing dead. Brinkley’s stack totaled just over 160,000 and he took a massive pot that grew his holdings to almost 400,000.

Tournament staff announced moments ago dealers will deal five more hands before bagging and tagging for the evening. Full chip counts through Flight E will be posted shortly thereafter.

Event 1E: Big Stacks Climbing at the Last Level

Event 1E: $570 Deep Stack, $300K Gtd
Level 14: 1,200/2,400/300 | Structure
Flight E Players Remaining: 53/216

Jim Brinkley

Level 14 began moments ago and it marks the final level of the night. There’s been plenty of movement in the counts as there’s no shortage of big stacks to keep track of. One of those big stacks belongs to Jim Brinkley. Brinkley’s chips total about 186,000 and he looks for a strong last 30 minutes so he can bag one of the pace-setting stacks heading to tomorrow’s Day 2.
