There are 315 players left with an average stack of 38,262 and here is the news from the Gold Section of the Brasilia Room.
Toby Lewis has left the building, eliminated at the hands of Ryan D'Angelo. Lewis flopped a flush draw and went with it while D'Angelo called with top-pair and held it. That elimination put D'Angelo on 45,000 but he has since tripled that stack and sits behind a hefty looking 130,000.
Some of the other big stacks in the Gold Section belong to Peter Gilmore (124,000), Shankar Pillai (100,000) and Daniel Chamberlain (100,000).
Bryan Pellegrino secured his first-ever live six-figure score when he finished runner-up to Nick Jivkov in Event #5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em for $117,199, an event that Pellegrino went into the final table as the chip leader. We have just seen Pellegrino eliminate Petr Bartagon v to move up to 40,000.
In other news, Marvin Rettenmaier has eliminated Nicholas Verkaik, pocket aces versus pocket jacks, to move him up to 83,000, and Steven Kerr has just dragged in a nice pot to put him up to 74,000 after flopping holding to glean 10,000 from his opponent.
