The Event 18 field is thinning down fast and we are rapidly approaching the money bubble. Two players stand of from the crowd as both are sitting behind mountains of chips. Ricardo Ramirez is playing approximately 600,000 and even after doubling up James McKinnon he still well out in front.
Michael Lewis looks to be the second largest stack with about 475,000 and he is the only other player to cross the 400,000 chip mark. There are plenty of familiar faces left in the Event 18 hunt and we will be featuring a few of them here shortly on the blog.
While the WPT BPO Championship takes place at the front of the Event Center there is another event with a massive field in the back of the room. Event 18 of the Borgata Poker Open is a $260+$40 Deep Stack NLH event with a $100,000.
631 players entered to create a prize pool of over $150,000. Nearly half the field has been eliminated and the players are now on a 15 minute break. We will be picking back up on all of the Event 18 action when the players return and play resumes.
