Adam Horowitz Leads After Day 1c of 2019 Seminole Hard Rock May Deep Stack
The 2019 Seminole Hard Rock May Deep Stack Poker Series continued on Saturday with the third and final starting flights in Event #1: $350 DeepStack NLH. Day 1c attracted 327 runners, which along with Day 1a’s 225 and 1b’s 200 brought the current field size up to 752 entries.
That number could grow as late registration is open until the start of play on Day 2, at which point official prize pool and payout information will be determined.
After 14 levels of play, 54 players remained with Adam Horowitz and his stack of 444,000 leading the way. That behind Day 1a chip leader Aaron Klausman (480,000), but ahead of 1b chip leader Sean Shah (418,000).
Others to bag big stacks were Nir Peleg (378,000), Johann Tiemann (361,000), Guillermo Reyes (360,000), and Mark Smith (334,000), who round out the top five.
