Chipping Up And Crushing Souls

Nivel 3 : 150/300, 0 ante

In no particular fashion, Marvin Rettenmaier has really been chipping up here on Day 1 of the Main Event. We walked by his table and noticed that he had an extremely large stack sitting in front of him. When we asked him if there was any big hands he played to get the stack, he had no answer.

"Honestly, he's been chipping up just 10k at a time," Jeff Sarwer who was also at the table explained. "Just chipping up and crushing souls."

At an adjacent table, Tayfun Akbasli has also been chipping up, but not without hard work. Akbasli explained to us how on the first hand of the tournament his {A-}{A-} was cracked by pocket sevens, but he managed to survive and not go broke. Later on in the day, Akbasli explained that he ran into a straight flush with his king high flush, and once again managed to satay alive. Now, after jamming all in with a straight and make a correct queen-high call Akbasli is up over 100,000.

Both men are now near the top of our chip counts still early here in Day 1.
