Stuart Henrique

We missed how it happened but wondered by Stuart Henrique’s table to see our Day 2 starting leader added to his stack. He built it up from 505,000 to begin the day to a whopping 745,000 after a level and a half of play.

Only seven tables remain in action and those 63 players are trying to make the next milestone, the money when 47 are still here.

Main Event: Wally Maddah Doubles Through Jamie Smith

Wally Maddah (left) and Jamie Smith (right)

Jamie “Beard” Smith opened to 10,000 from under the gun. It folded all the way around to Wally Maddah in the big blind, he moved all in for 77,000 and Smith quickly called.

Maddah: AcKs
Smith: QhQs

Maddah needed to catch to stay in the Main Event but the 7h6h3h flop did not look promising. Smith took away Maddah’s heart outs and Maddah began standing up before the dealer put out the Kc turn. Maddah faded the hearts and queens on the Tc river to double.

Wally Maddah – 161,500 (32 bb)
Jamie “Beard” Smith – 265,000 (53 bb)

Peter Walsworth

Peter Walsworth opened to 10,000 from middle position and Deon Sampson moved all in for 58,000 from the hijack. Every folded back around to Walsworth and he quickly called.

Walsworth: AsAd
Sampson: 8s8d

A tough spot for Sampson and he could not find a save as the board ran out Tc6h4d9c5d. Sampson was eliminated and Walsworth added to his big stack.

Peter Walsworth – 465,000 (116 bb)
Deon Sampson – Eliminated

Stuart Henrique returns with the Day 2 chip lead

Three starting flights combined to put 466 entries into the 2019 Pinktober Poker Open Main Event and the field is down to 78 players. They return to the Poker Room today to begin working down to a champion.

Karl Manouchakian bagged the biggest stack in Flight A, his lead held through Flight B, but Stuart Henrique passed him by late in Flight C to take the overall lead. Henrique returns to a stack worth 505,000 with Manouchakian’s 433,000 in good shape as well. Jamie “Beard” Smith (386,000), Tam Nguyen (375,000), and Anthony Dianaty (375,000) round out the top five.

The Main Event will play three more 40-minute levels before they increase to one hour. Not long after that, levels will jump to 90 minutes when the tournament reaches the last three tables.

It will be a long, tough road with a slow structure and more than $93,000 awaiting the winner.

Top ten returning stacks:

  1. Stuart Henrique – 505,000 (126 bb)
  2. Karl Manouchakian – 433,000 (108 bb)
  3. Jamie “Beard” Smith – 386,000 (97 bb)
  4. Tam Nguyen – 375,000 (94 bb)
  5. Anthony Dianaty – 375,000 (94 bb)
  6. Peter Walsworth – 369,000 (92 bb)
  7. Derek Bowers – 360,000 (90 bb)
  8. Kareem Marshall – 354,000 (89 bb)
  9. Shawn Barnett – 343,000 (86 bb)
  10. Christopher Boyle – 331,000 (83 bb)

Stuart Henrique

It looked like Karl Manouchakian was going to hold the Day 2 lead but Stuart Henrique stormed ahead late and put 505,000 away for Day 2. That tops Manouchakian’s 433,000 but they are both in the comfort zone.

Others advancing among the 43 from Flight C include David Tuthill, Justin Zaki, Anthony Dianaty, Emad Alabsi, Brandon Byars, and Doyle Scott Elliott.

We have 78 players set to return tomorrow for Day 2 at 11 am with 47 of them set to make some money.

We will post the full Day 2 chip counts and seating assignments as soon as they are available.

Tan Nguyen

Flight C has reached the final level of the evening and action slowed way down. There are still 54 players remaining and they are trying to hold onto their chips to make Day 2.

Tan Nguyen is the latest at the top of the counts and the first player over 300,000. He’s up to 303,000 and in contention for the Day 2 chip lead.
