WPT Fall Classic’s Main Event Day 1C Recap
Rose performed more than brilliant yesterday during the Main Event’s last starting flight. He was determinate to build an emporium of chips and his determination awarded him with the position of a chip leader. By the time the play was completed, the player bagged and tagged a stack of 300,600 in chips to claim the overall chip lead. The player managed to amass his commanding chip lead just before the clock announced the end of the final level. Rose managed to knock out Chrishan Sivasundaram to add 30,000 in chips to his already high tower of chips.
The second biggest stack to enter Day 2 of the long-awaited event is Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. He holds a stack of 246,900 in chips. Mizrachi is not a stranger to the world of poker. He was selected a WPT Champions Club member two times. Undoubtedly, Mizrachi is a fearful poker player and his opponents will most probably try to avoid confrontations with him. Mike Sexton is also hovering over the top positions. It is interesting to mention that Sexton was eliminated in both Day 1A and Day 1B, but at last he managed to secure himself with an advantageous position to enter Day 2 of WPT Fall Classic Main Event. The player can be easily recognized at the poker tables as he brings his lucky toy monkey “Flippy”.
