Nettles Crushes Day 1A

He was pretty talkative early on, pretty active in the middle stages and the overwhelming chipleader the final three levels of the night. Kevin Nettles is not just the Day 1A chipleader, he ended the night 53 BB ahead of the second stack.

Nettles gained most of his chips when then-chipleader Damon Huff melted down by calling off about 100,000 chips while holding T6 on a 6-2-3 flop. Nettles moved all-in on the flop holding Aces and Poker Christmas came early for Nettles, who bagged 349,500 at the end of the night.

Huff never recovered from that misstep and was eliminated in Level 14. Among the others who came out for Day 1A but did not advance included Joe Fernandez, Terry Harper, Caleb Meyer, Bruce Carter and Selani Flores.

Luke Vrabel was unusually quiet for him, chipped up consistently throughout Day 1A, bagging a 93k Day 2 stack. Others advancing include Svetlana Martie (137,000) and Luanne Uligian (191,500 ). Samuel Spiwak made the biggest comeback of those who bagged. He came back from dinner with 8BB and bagged 161,500.
