A few of the players in the field have over 100,000, while some are approaching 200,000. Jason Mercier was off to a very fast start with 100,000 about two hours ago and has since moved it up to 170,000.
Alex Wilson wasn't that far behind him in terms of how long it took for his stack to join the top stacks in the field, and is now slightly ahead of Mercier.
Adam Owen just cracked 100,000 after winning two hands in a row.
A player limped from middle position and Owen called from the small blind. The big blind bet 44,000 and both the limper and Owen called.
The flop was and all three players checked. The turn was the and Owen bet 12,500. The raiser called and the limper folded.
The river was the and Owen went all in. He has his opponent covered so the shove was effectively for 15,000 — his opponent's remaining stack.
Eventually his opponent folded and Owen raked in the pot. On the next hand after raising preflop, Owen c-bet the flop and grabbed another quick 15,000.
