Day 1a chip counts

Derek McMaster

Day 1a of the Meskwaki Main Event attracted a grand total of 176 entries and when the cock crowed to signal the end of the day, only 20 remained.

Leading the remaining players at day’s end was Derek McMaster who caught an end of day whirlwind to catapult him to the top of the counts with 482,500. McMaster became a boisterous presence in the final couple of levels of play as he used his stack and his voice to start vacuuming all the chips at the table.

Finishing the day in 2nd place was Nick Marsh with 443,000. Marsh rose to the top earlier in the day than McMaster and had a steadier rise to the top as he had a large stack from even the early part of the day.
