Level 10 (800/1,600/200)
Day 1A Entrants: 111
Players Remaining: 39
Mike Cordell's name popped on the early round of the leaderboard, a familiar trend for the Arkansas native. Cordell (pictured) is sitting behind 170,000 coming into the last few levels of the night and has the pleasure of sitting to the direct left of Jeff Kester's stack of 150,000.
Winning tournaments is something that comes naturally to Cordell as exampled by his World Series of Poker bracelet and three WSOP Circuit rings. The latest of those rings came in January at a $365 event in Tunica as he beat a field of 1,208.
One item missing from Cordell's trophy case is the RunGood Cup. If he can keep up his current Day 1A run, Cordell should be in a great spot to enter Day 2 with a lot of chips and an eye on the final table.
