We just spotted Matt Stout in the field, fresh off his second-place finish in yesterday's Event #21: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed) for $313,370. That second-place finish marked Stout's third final table in the last three years, he finished third in a $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event last year for $192,813 and eighth in a $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event in 2010 as well for $63,032.
Stout looks to improve upon his finish from last night with another good run today but Stout has some work to do as he has already lost one third of his stack in a recent hand:
On a board of action checked to Stout who was on button. He bet 1,350 and was called by the player in the cutoff. The player in the hijack seat made a check raise to 2,850. Stout tanked a bit before folding his hand, as did the player in the cutoff.
Stout still has plenty of chips to work with though as he looks for another deep run here in Event #27.
