Brad St. Vincent Takes Casino Champion Lead

Brad St. Vincent came into Event #10 with 67.5 points, good for third place on the Venue Leaderboard. James Campbell was the current Casino Champion with 75 points, so Brad would need to get 36th place or better to earn 10 points and take the lead. With the last few eliminations, Brad has just earned another 10 points and now has at least 87.5 points, with more points to be earned if he gets a 9th place finish or higher. There is still one event left on the schedule, so James Campbell or a handful of players with points could re-take the lead.

The Bubble Burst in Event #11

Play was hand-for-hand in Event #11 $365 NLH, and a player let himself blind down to a single ante chip. He was eventually all in with that chip, and he lost to be the bubble boy. The remaining 24 players are now in the money, and play will continue at 1,500/3,000 blinds with a 500 ante.

43 remain in Event #11

While the Main Event heads to dinner break, 43 players remain in Event #11 $365 NLH from a starting field of 223 entrants. Matt Wantman looks to be the current chip leader, sitting on a stack of 220,000 with the blinds at 800/1,600 with a 200 ante. The top 24 players will be in the money in this event.
