$170 + $30 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)
Just minutes after watching Craig Mason (Astoria, NY) lose 70k he gets it back and more.
On the last hand of the level a player makes it 9k (blinds 1,500/3k/400 ante) and Mason 3-bets to 45k and his opponent calls.
The flop is 10 high, Mason bets 20k and his opponent calls. On the turn, Mason moves all in and his opponent tank calls, then mucks when Mason shows top set with pocket 10s.
Mason is up to 450k and one of the big stacks with 81 players remaining.
"I thought you were bad luck for me," laughs Mason who clearly avoids the blogger curse.
The average stack is 115k (29 bb) with blinds at 2k/4k/400.
The schedule is to play three more levels before taking a 1 hour dinner break at 7:45 pm
