Good level for
Tobias Reinkemeier – As has been the case throughout the Premier League, Tobias Reinkemeier leads in Group B. At this rate he is going to have a huge stack going into the final table.
Bad level for
Igor Kurganov – The Russian has slid down to the bottom of the chip counts after the first level. Only a win will do for Kurganov so he need to halt the slide ASAP.
Hand of the level
Dan Shak opened to 5,000 with the and his only customer was Tony G with the . The flop saw Shak continue with a 5,000 bet and Tony G raise it up to 20,000. Phil Hellmuth commented that he though Tony G should have just called the 5,000 bet because Shak may come over the top of his raise. That is exactly what happened as Shak raised to 50,000. This did not worry Tony G at all because he moved all in for 293,000 and although Shak all but put Tony G on his exact holding, he folded and left Tony G to scoop the pot.
