Level 5 (200/400/50)
Day 1A Entrants: 67
RunGood's Dan Lowery (pictured) reputation of building a powerful stack on Day 1 precedes him and he is living up to it so far in Flight A. Lowery is leading the field in Level 5 and felted an opponent by getting there on the river to build his stack up to 125,000.
Picking up the action on a four-way flop of 10♥8♣2♦, Lowery bet 2,800 from early position and only the hijack called to the 6♣ turn. Lowery checked and his opponent bet 6,000, which Lowery reacted to by moving all-in.
The hijack tanked for a minute and called with Q♦10♦ for about 15,000 more. Lowery's K♠7♠ was in trouble but the 9♥ river brought the straight home to bust his opponent.
Midway through the first flight and Lowery is on pace to have another large chip stack waiting for him once Day 2 starts.
