@HPTPoker @Gates_Poker Day 1C belonged to Angel Howell once dinner break ended. A big hand - Jacks for her vs Kings for her challenger, where she ran out quads - pushed Howell near the top of the leaderboard.
The big stack continued to soar skyward and Howell placed relentless pressure on her tablemates for the final two hours of play. By the time the bag-n-tag came, she amassed 382,500 chips, god for 2nd in the field to the 391,000 of Andreas Ramadanis, who put on a late surge to grab top Day 1C honors.
2015 WSOP MillyMaker Champ Adrian Buckley put of a chip-gathering show for a while also, leading the way until Howell went on her multi-level heater. Buckley ended the night with 331,000.
Former HPT Champ Roger Martin was first to 100,000, made it to 170,000 and stayed at that mark for most of the final 5 levels, slipping a bit at the end. He finished with 105,500
Among those who came out for Day 1C but did not find a bag was Rex Clinkscales, Allen Kessler, Chan Pelton, Ed Sebesta, Gary Germann, Nader Wahdan and Gerry Morrell
