Chris – 57d

John Tavss – AxAx

Flop – Ks Qs 10d (at this point, Chris thinks his drawing dead…he would need running diamonds to stay alive)

Turn – 9d

River – 2d. Table goes in an uproar and Chris is still hanging on .

Level 10 – 500/1K 100 ante – Grinder is battling with Mike @allinwithJesus Clemente

DeepStacks Poker Pro Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi arrived just as late registration was just about to be over.  Mike Clemente (left) had over 50K heading into break.

Clemente, motioned me over to view how many chips left he had. Just over 8K. “What happened” I asked. “He (Mizrachi) took them from me. He’s been aggresive”. 5 minutes later, Clemente had nearly 40K. Now this time the tables turned as Grinder lost a few pots. 

Grinder is currently at 32K.

One more level until registration is closed for the day. Looking around the room, few people have hit the 50K mark but other than that…no one is dominant.

Curtis McCantis, Norwich, CT is one of the current chip leaders hanging around 50K.

Andrew Sherman-Ash, runner-up in the 2012 DSPT National Championship is also here and is currently at 25K.
