Tops in Chips

Event 6: $250 + $30 No Limit Hold'em

Top Chip Counts as of the break:

John Lee - 345k
Michael Scotti - 312k
Brandon Vargas - 280k
Brian Nardone - 274k
Jonathan Tsang - 225k

37 players returned to action with blinds of 5k/10k with 1k antes.

On a flop of K7T seat 1 moved all in. Adam Sanders tanked for a bit, got a chip count, then called showing pocket 7s for middle set. Seat 1 held 54 for the flush draw. Turn was the 6 giving seat 1 more outs with the open-ender, but the river was another King, pairing the board and giving Adam a boat and the pot. He chipped up to ~225k.

Pedro Torres got his last chips in with Q8 and called by Brandon Vargas who held AJ. An Ace on the flop was all it took for Brandon to claim the pot. Pedro claimed 32nd place and $604.

After Michael Scotti (Queens, NY) opened for 40k, Cho Yeung moved in for 98k on top. Michael thought about it, then made the call with AK. Cho was racing with pocket 5s. The board came clean, Q T T 2 6, and Cho doubled up to about 280k.

Down to 26 players now.
