Two Former Champs in Top Five at First Break

First Break Chip Leader Michael Rocco 

They’re well on their way to another record-breaking WSOP Circuit field here at Thunder Valley Casino Resort.

Through three levels, 266 entries have filled the room, bringing the overall total to an even 600 and $909,000 toward the prize pool.

Remember that $500,000 guarantee? Yah, it’s gone and almost a lock to be doubled before registration closes before Level 13.

Sizable stacks are being built already with Anthony Rocco on top of the counts with 153,000 chips, and former Thunder Valley Circuit Main Event champs Paul Richardson and Michael Persky also inside the top five.

1. Anthony Rocco – 153,000 2. Cole Chait – 128,600 3. Paul Richardson – 120,000 4. Daniel Hughes – 115,000 5. Michael Persky – 104,000

Other notables in the field include:

Joseph Quaile – 73,200 Barry Shulman – 59,000 Ari Engel – 58,000 Carolyn Patterson – 54,000 Scott Eskenazi – 48,100 Bob Mather – 47,000 Charisse Case – 45,300 Lexy Gavin-Mather – 44,700 Maxwell Young – 42,000 Bilguun Odgerel – 39,300
