End of Level 16:
Blinds 2,000 / 4,000 / 400 Ante
Total Event 1F Entrants: 1,451
Total Event 1 Entrants: 5,101
Remaining Players in 1F: Approx. 300
We estimate that Carlos Alvarado has finished the night with the largest chip stack at 402,000, but it’s a very close call with a number of players within a few thin chips of him. As always, the official numbers will come in by morning. Other big stacks:
Paul Evangelou 390,000
James Fisher 360,000
Christopher Mikil 360,000
Orson Young 352,500
Derek Updegraff 350,000
Robert Rukmini 323,000
Petro Grobyak 315,000
Again, a full list of players with official chip counts will be posted when available. A redraw will take place before Day 2 begins at 12 noon Friday, and the seating assignments will be posted in the blog and in the Event Center.
That wraps up the five flights of Event 1, Day 1!
