Steven Chepurny Leads Seneca Summer Slam Event after Massive Starting Days
The fourth and final starting flight in the 2016 Seneca Niagara Falls Summer Slam Event #2: $200 No-Limit Hold'em with a $50,000 guarantee drew 160 entries Saturday evening.
Combined with the 154 who signed up on Day 1c, the total amount of entries got up to 562, obliterating the guarantee and creating a $92,378 prize pool that will pay 54 spots, with $21,246 awaiting the winner.
By the time 14 levels of play were through in the last flight, a total of 27 players pushed through to Day 2 Sunday. That's where the survivors of all four flights will play to a winner, including 64 from the first two — minus one player who bagged twice taking his best stack forward — for a total of 90 players returning.
Matt Devins (184,200) bagged the flight lead after a solid day. Sam DeSabio (174,300), Thomas Mader (166,000), and Hayden Glassman (159,400) also bagged big.
After another wildly swingy day, Bruce Pace (134,800) also finished with six figures. Day 1c leader Steven Chepurny (photo) will be on top coming into Day 2 as the only player over 200,000 with a total stack of 219,000.
The event's final day will play out beginning at 11 a.m. local time Sunday with the money bubble expected to burst rather quickly. Some of the bigger stacks are as follows:
