Level 5: 300/600 Limits

It’s a limit game, so we don’t expect to see very many big swings in the early levels with the stack and bet sizes. We had one player in the entire field double his stack over the first four levels.

Patrick Ritacco ran his 10,000 starting stack up to 22,650 in two short hours for a clear lead over the rest of the players. Claudangelo Beaudouin, Alex Cohen, Jeffrey Cookson, and Joe Pantalano round out the top five.

Ritacco has two reported tournament cashes with both in Omaha/8 games, the last coming earlier this year when he final tabled the 2015 Coco Poker Showdown version.

Patrick Ritacco – 22,650 (38 big bets)
