PNIA Main Event (Day 1C): Out Of The Gates Strong

Level 7 (150/300/25)
Total PNIA Main Event Entries: 1,126
Total PNIA Main Event Day 1C Entries: 593

With so many players in today’s Day 1C flight, it was a little bit of a search to find some of the early chip leaders. The slow structure of this event, chips are hard to come by early on, but a few players have jumped out to a hot start.

Collin Grubaugh is seated right next to the blog table but has quietly chipped up without much fanfare through the first few levels. Grubaugh took down the biggest score of his poker career this summer when he won the ININJA Championship at Planet Hollywood for $62,000. Grubaugh is nearing the 75,000 mark and has his eyes set on chipping up more throughout the day.
We’ve noted a few players who have traveled from parts across the country to play in this event and Carlos Monteiro is part of that crowd. The Minnesota native is battling at a table that includes Mina Greco but hasn’t found much trouble picking up chips to this point. Monteiro is up to 70,000 early and could perhaps join fellow Minnesotan Todd Breyfogle in tomorrow’s Day 2.
