Entry Record Broken by Dinner Break

Aman Gupta sits fifth in chips at dinner break 

It’s taken just nine levels Friday to create the largest Day 1A WSOP Circuit field in Thunder Valley POKER room history.

The tournament clock shows 302 entries as the 146 remaining players have headed out on their 75-minute dinner break.

A couple of well-known northern California pros saw opposite fortunes befall them in the last two hours, as JC Tran’s day was cut short, but Lexy-Gavin Mather is back in business after hitting a two-outer to triple up.

When the players return from dinner at 6:45 p.m. PT, they’ll have three more levels for re-entry before registration closes before Level 13.

After that, play will continue into the money, with that final 15% bagging up for the night at that point to return for Day 2 on Sunday at noon.

Now leading the field at dinner is Tsz Shing as the first player over 300,000, while the top five stacks look like this:

1. Tsz Shing – 302,000
2. Denis Lee – 270,000
3. Sean Cummings – 250,000
4. Michael Tomaselli – 233,000
5. Aman Gupta – 220,500

Some of the other notables still battling on Day 1A include the following:

Dann Turner – 191,000
Jesse Tinsley – 182,500
Andrew Ostapchenko – 175,000
Lexy Gavin-Mather – 100,000
Bob Mather – 98,000
Taylor Pollard – 80,000
Justin Lapka – 80,000
Victor Paredes – 76,000
Ari Engel – 75,000
Paul Richardson – 58,000
