Level 5 (150/300/25)
Total Entrants: 15
We expected to see a few players start to separate themselves from the field by this stage of the Seniors Event but Gil Sacks is currently heas and shoulders above his opponents. Sacks is currently playing close to the 80,000 mark, which is good enough for almost 20 percent of the chips in play.
Sacks is one of the more accomplished players in this field with $319,000 in career tournament earnings that include two Borgata Poker Open trophies. It is still relatively early on Day 1, but at the rate Sacks is amassing chips, the rest of the field has their work cut out for them to catch up.
As a reminder, registration and late entry are open until the start of Level 9. With the field standing at 15 entrants, there remains an overlay in the $5,000 guaranteed prize pool. Once the cage closes, the official payouts will be posted on the SugarHouse Blog.
