Level 27 (25,000/50,000/5,000)
Total BPPS 500 Entries: 363
Players Remaining: 7
Chip Average: 1,550,000
While the majority of the early BPPS 500 blog coverage has been centered around the big stacks of Mickey Woll, Vinny Pahuja and more recently Jeff Gross, one player who has been more or less dead quiet though the first few levels today is Antonio Walker.
While Walker started the day just over the chip average, he more or less did not play a meaningful hand through the first two levels and dipped below that number, finding himself near the bottom of the leaderboard within the first two hours of play.
He’s completely comfortable there though as he may be the best short stacked player not only in this field but on the East Coast, or so he claims.
Walker might be proving himself right there as he hung well under the chip average for close to a level and a half and is now peaking at the right time as he’s currently near the 2,000,000 chip mark.
Replacing Walker near the bottom of the BPPS 500 count list are Nate Parenti, Vinny Pahuja and Renata Colache who are all near the 1,000,000 chip mark.
