Level 9 (250/500/75)
Total PNIA Main Event Entries: 180
Day 1A of the Poker Night in America Main Event is officially halfway over as the field heads out on their dinner break. With 18 levels total in store for all Day 1 sessions, it is truly a marathon and not a sprint. Play will resume at approximately 7:30 pm with late registration and re-entry open until that time for today’s flight.
Phillip Barch is still the man to beat for the 180 entrants in today’s flight as he is now over the 120,000 mark. Joining him near the top of the ranks is Kevin Duddlesten, who is just under 100,000. There are no other players currently over the six-figure mark but that is soon to change in all likelihood.
With the field slowly starting to thin out, more chip leaders are soon to emerge and a complete list of those out in front will be published when play resumes one hour from now.
