Level 13 (1,500/3,000/500)
Total Entrants: 476
Players Remaining: 117
Average Stack: 124,000
Normally having a big stack coming into Day 2 of a Main Event would make you king of the table but with the amount of tough table draws in play, two players who bagged over 300,000 have a long road ahead of them to run deep.
Luke Collina had the pleasure of being the clubhouse leader for most of the week until he was overtaken by Michael Hager late last night. Collina started today with Day 2 but will need to outlast fellow big stacks Craig Rubinstein and Jacaranda Henkel along with experienced pro, Matt Zambanini, if he hopes to make it do make to the final table.
Right behind Collina on the leaderboard is Julian Calin, who put 313,000 in the bag earlier this week. Calin was joined by Day 2 buy-ins Olivier Busquet and Scott Blumstein on either side of him earlier in Level 13 and will have to find a way to leverage his stack as best as possible with so many sharks in the water.
