Last Saturday, the tournament series The Big Event kicked off at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles. 417 players signed up for the Main Event and now, 3 days later, 70 players still have the chance to reach the final table and battle for some serious cash.
Chip leader is the american Victor Ramadin. Ramadin has played fantastic poker from the very beginning of the tournament and he has managed to accumulate 1,050,000 chips - double the stack than Jamie Kaplan in second place.
The biggest name left in the field of players is from Canada. Daniel Negreanu has 360,700 chips and is at the moment in 5th place. A win for Negreanu will take him back to number 1 on the All Time Money list, so we can expect to see him play his very best game.
