Davit Litt (589,000) bags the top stack in Day 1B of the HPT $1,650 Main Event at Gates Poker Room in Black Hawk, CO, with a late rush by Maziar Keshavarzi placing two half-milly stacks atop the leaderboard.
Keshavarzi went from 125,000 to an end-of-night 530,000 in the last 90 minutes of the night as players gambled for big stacks ... and some struck out.
Aaron Johnson connected by adding 230,000 in those same 90 minutes, bagging 374,000 as the No. 3 stack among the 19 players - from a 128-entry field - moving on to Sunday's Day 2 restart at 11am.
Among those who built a stack today but did not find a Day2Bag was Alex Greenblatt, Rich Dixon, David Levy, David Levi, Craig Casino, Shawn Roberts, nick Pupillo, Jarod Minghini, Jackson White, Nader Wahdan, Svetlana Martie, Mike Englert and Chris Tryba.
The final starting flight - Day 1C - begins Saturday at Noon. Registration and a single re-entry per player is available until ~7:30pm when Level 10 begins.
Here's the chipcounts for the 19 who did find that Day2Bag.
