Cream Rises to the Top

Matt Stout

Even though there are over 2,700 entries in Event #5A, there are many notables rising to the top of the leaderboard. Most recently Matt Stout has been building himself a healthy stack.

Just now Stout was in a hand in which his opponent raised from early position to 1,500 and Stout three-bet to 4,000 directly to his left. Everyone else folded and the action was back on the initial raiser. He chose to call and they were heads-up to the flop. The dealer fanned a board of {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades} and the action was checked to Stout, who bet 3,200. His opponent folded and Stout stacked his chips quickly before heading on break.

Here is a look at some other notables that have built chip stacks throughout the day.
