Nate Parenti is now up and over the chip average for the first time today after taking a decent pot off former chip leader Mickey Woll.

Mickey Woll returned from break as the biggest stack at this BPPS 500 Final Table but he’s been cut down in back-to-back hands as the shorter stacks of Steven Sarmiento and Nate Parenti have taken close to a quarter of his stack over the first 15 minutes of Level 26.

The first hand saw Woll open 85,000 from middle position only to see Sarmiento move all-in from the button for just under 300,000 total.

Woll would make the easy mathematical call but he’d need to hit to score the knockout as Sarmiento held {Ac}{Js} to Woll’s {Ad}{10h}. The board would run out clean enough for the short stack as his high cards would be enough to score the double, giving him a now more workable over 10 big blind stack.

The next hand would see another crack be dealt to Woll’s stack as he’d call a 55,000 chip bet from Parenti on a board of {8d}{Ac}{Qc} after Woll had opened the action pre-flop and Parenti defended his big blind.

Parenti would curb his aggression, check calling the {Jd} turn card for 150,000 before leading out for 300,000 after the {4d} complete the board.

“You back doored me huh?” Woll would say before folding after a minute in the tank.

Parenti is now comfortably over the chip average while Mickey Woll is under the 2,000,000 mark for the first time in the last two levels.
