PNIA Main Event (Day 1B): More Climbers Up The Mountain

Level 12 (500/1,000/100)
Total PNIA Main Event Entries: 542
Total PNIA Main Event Day 1B Entries: 355
Players Remaining: 142

The past few levels have been a moving day of sorts as more big stacks have started to come out of the woodwork. Justin Liberto is still out in front and closing in on 300,000 but are few players are putting together a charge of their own.

Ted Gillis is currently the closest challenger to Liberto as the former Marine is pushing near 200,000. Gillis won a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2014, beating a final table that included John Hennigan and Mustapha Kanit. Gillis gained $514,000 from that victory and is pushing his way toward a second major title on Day 1B. 
We mentioned Matt Glantz and Sean Mates earlier this level and David Gonia has the unenviable task of being seated between the two players. Fortunately for Gonia, he and his $468,000 in career tournament should be able to handle themselves quite fine. Gonia is pushing up toward 120,000 and preparing for a deep run late into tonight.
