Rem Remington

Your humble live updates reporter had to do a double take when walking past Table 8. Rem Remington was in the middle of adding to an already impressive castle after sending Mario De La Puente out of the tournament and he was stacking them high.

Most of them are 1K chips about to be colored off at the next break but he’s up to 817,000 for one of the top in the room.

Recent results:

57th: Danny Callahan – $971

Mark Zhang

Matthew Kerley is no longer the chip leader and it looks like Mark Zhang was the recipient of some of his stack. Kerley is under 300,000 while our Flight A biggest bag Zhang has a whopping 894,000 with the field quickly dwindling.

Tony March

They are flying along after the break over the last two levels and the Event 1 field is down to 70 players.

Tony March dodged being one of them with a timely river. He shoved for 129,000 with the board reading Ts8s3d with Jh5h and ran into top pair AsTd. The 7s turn was no help but he doubled to 295,000 after the Jd river.

After the money bubble was burst, we had a quick run to the payout desk with the short stacks getting it in. Eight players went out on the last ten minutes of the level and the remaining players took a quick break to color off the 500 units.

David Yo

Event 1 hit the money bubble at the midpoint of Level 17 and they did not wait long to finish their business. On the first bubble hand, there were two all-ins called.

On Table9, Alex Burry put his last 53,000 in the middle with the board reading Ad6c3cKs and Michael Gencal called to put him at risk. Burry was ahead with AhKc and need to fade a flush draw/gutshot draw QcJc and boated on the Kh river to double.

On Table 11, David Yo was all in preflop against Jermaine Gerlin and Yo was dominated. His AsTc was in trouble against AdQh and could not find a save to be the Event 1 bubble boy.

Event 1: Nearing the Bubble

The money bubble is just about here with 108 players remaining and 102 getting paid. Tournament staff will pause the clock and go into hand-for-hand mode when 103 remain.

Wally Maddah was one of the recent eliminations to drop the field to the last 12 tables.

Wilfred Templeton

The action has been a little slower at the start than anticipated and only 10 players hit the rail in early action. One of those was Wilfred Templeton after he found ace-face in early position. He moved all in for ~60,000 with AcJc and David Russel called in the small blind with AsKd. He had a chop sweat but the 5c4d3d6hKc board sent him out.

In other news, we are still waiting for Travis Keppel to make his return to the Poker Room. His stack is getting blinded out but he still has a stake in the game.

Travis Keppel’s bag awaits his arrival

The 2019 WPTDeepStacks Tampa series is in full swing and we close out the weekend with a big restart. Event 1 drew 1,012 entries over the seven starting flights to put more than $300,000 up for grabs later today.

Of those starters, we have 150 players coming back today and they will play down to a champion later this evening. Tampa regular Scott Caracciolo leads the way with 343,500 and David Nadeau is the only other returning to a stack over 300,000.

The average stack is 135,000 (34 bb) and the money bubble should get here before the first break with 102 getting paid. Levels continue to run at 30 minutes each and will continue that way until we have our Event 1 champion.

Cards go back in the air at the top of the hour and we will not leave until someone walks away with the Event guitar trophy.

  1. Scott Caracciolo – 343,500 (86 bb)
  2. David Nadeau – 301,000 (75 bb)
  3. Drew Brannon – 296,000 (74 bb)
  4. Matthew Kerley – 292,000 (73 bb)
  5. John Sellars – 286,000 (72 bb)
  6. Mark Lynch – 278,500 (70 bb)

Drew Brannon

The final flight of Event 1 has come to an end with 55 players remaining of the 340 starters. Drew Brannon briefly lost his chip lead but took it back over the last few hands. He put 296,000 away for tomorrow, good enough for third overall, with William Hill in second holding 271,000.

They will all return for Day 2 tomorrow at 11 am with the other 95 survivors from previous flights.

We will post the complete table draw later this evening as soon as it is available.

Time is running out to build a bag. Level 14 is here to leave them with only 30 minutes remaining in their day. The pace slowed a bit as short stacks try to hang on for tomorrow’s action but we should see another table gone before bagging.

The field is dropping and the stacks are building. Our newest big stack belongs to a familiar face. Mario De La Puente has been on a hot streak of late, including a win in Event 2 a few days ago, and is in position to return tomorrow with a big bag.

He’s up to 210,000 with less than an hour remaining.

They got there. With barely a sweat over the last level, Flight G pushed the combined entry count of Event 1 over 1,000 with a baker’s dozen to spare. We will wait for the confirmed numbers and post them along with the payout information.

We have two new big stacks and with a pair of Mikes. Mike Warren is the top stack in the room with 142,500 and Mike Vadala is not far behind with 135,000.

Everyone remaining has six more levels to run to catch them and put together a big bag for tomorrow.

The race is on. Flight G is up to 322 entries with one level remaining for late registration, plus the break, and they are chasing a four-digit field. The entry count sits at 994 and it should get there if we see some action with re-entries.

Willie Wiggins

The count keeps climbing and four-digit territory is in play if we catch another big run at the registration desk. It’s a long shot but you can never tell what will happen as time runs out on the final flight of Event 1.

Willie Wiggins is taking his shot this afternoon in an attempt to book his first major cash in this room. The South Florida pro has plenty of big scores at our sister property in Hollywood, including a $176K cash in January, but he’s still looking for that big number on the west coast of Florida.

Cards are back in the air after the first break. We searched the room for the biggest stack and found a big one. With a few stacks in the 70K range, Massimo Dirienzo eclipsed them all. He ran his 20,000 starting stack up for 116,500 in two hours for a great start.
