Level 9 (600/1,200/200)
Day 1B Entrants: 146
Total Entrants: 217
Day 1B Players Remaining: 63
RunGood ambassador Dan 'Wretchy' Martin (pictured) was eliminated late on Day 1A after being taken down by Grant Hinkle. Determined to improve on his fourth-place finish from the Deep Stack event, Martin came in hot on Day 1B and is now playing a stack of 200,000.
That number is good enough for the chip lead and ahead of the pace of clubhouse leader Jesse Jones's total from yesterday.
Martin acquired most of those chips at the conclusion of Level 8 when he turned the nut flush and got max value from a flopped straight to double up. Then, Martin moved tables and picked off a failed bluff from an opponent who had just ace-high against his flopped set.
When the dust settled, Martin stacked up his new chips and will look to keep up the good run through the last few levels of Day 1B.
