(l-r) Amjadi, Markatos & Dykshteyn
Unlike Day 1A when Paul Spitzberg (Tenafly, NJ) had a commanding lead with nearly 950k, there's no clear chip leader with 20 minutes to play, at least not in the Event Center.
Friends Oleg Vayman (Brooklyn, NY) and Russ Dykshteyn (Brooklyn, NY) both have more than 400k, while Max Amjadi (Marmora, NY) is also in the mix. Amjadi and Dykshteyn are both on Table 2 along with Spiro Markatos (Hicksville, NY) who won the 2012 Borgata Poker Open $1k 6-max for $93,000.
All three players are in the Event Center. No spies have checked in from the Poker Room where ~10 tables remain.
Level 18 (3k/6k/500 ante) is underway.
