Some 3,346 partypoker players have bought in so far but only 488 of those starters still have chips in front of them right now. Those numbers are set to increase courtesy of four more Day 1s taking place today, March 24.
Whoever buys into the remaining quartet of flights will have to be at their brilliant best to catch the man currently top of the chip counts. Germany’s Raul Stanoiev turned his 100,000 starting stack into a tournament-leading 2,277,821 during his Day 1. The German sent three opponents to the rail on his way to the summit, which means he already has $73.44 worth of bounty payments nestled safely away in his account. Seeing how this event only costs $55 to enter, Stanoiev is freerolling his way towards a significant slice of the main prize pool.
Brazilian Naiquel Oliveria is Stanoiev’s nearest rival now with a 2,272,151 stack. Oliveira eliminated an impressive 13 players while building his colossal stack, and has $208.59 worth of scalps to his name already!
Amazingly, Oliveira’s bounty haul is not the largest because British grinder James Jones has already earned $210.94 for the six players he busted. Jones must have sent some high-value targets to the showers on his way to amassing 2,116,774 chips, which are enough for fifth place in the current chip counts.
