Shak Departs

MrPaulSeaton • Level 7: 300-600, 100 ante
Dan Shak

We've lost some big names late on here, and there aren't too many bigger than Dan Shak. The master of several High Roller tournaments, who often gravitates towards the bigger buy-in, will have another chance at a big win tomorrow but won't be going any further in the $5,300 Main Event.

Elsewhere on Day 1a, Charlie Carrel has been up and down since finishing second in the $100,000 Super High Roller tournament, but he is currently a little down from his starting stack on around 25,000.

Finally, Finland's Jorma Nuutinen got the better of Corey Hochman in a three-bet pot where the Finn was the preflop aggressor. Hochman called from 1500 to 4,600 to see a flop of {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} but couldn't continue when Nuutinen c-bet 3600. With 45,0000, Nuutinen looks to be building momentum ahead of the final level of the night.
