Level 10 (800/1,600/200)
Day 1A Entries: 124
Players Remaining: 55
Butch Clinton (pictured) was the chip leader at the midway point of Day 1A and is still chugging along. Clinton is now up to 220,000 after eliminating a poor soul.
The player in question limped in under the gun and Clinton raised to 4,500 in the cutoff. Clinton's opponent shoved for 13,200 total and Clinton used 30 seconds before calling with A♥3♠. Clinton was behind against A♦Q♥ but promptly hit on the 9♠7♦3♦ flop.
No queen came on the turn or river and Clinton scooped the pot. With only two levels left to come, Clinton is lapping the competition and looks to have his sights set on the clubhouse lead.
