$350 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) $250,000 Guaranteed Level 18: 5,000/10,000/1,000 Ante Players Remaining: 49 of 769
A few hands after his ace-jack was good, Stu Paterson sent two players to the rail to take the chip lead early in Level 18.
According to the table, Julie McGrath shoved under the gun and Paterson was in the small blind. It’s unclear how the action went down, but Paterson and Howard Mash — who was in the big blind — got the last of Mash’s chips in the middle as well. In a three-way pot, Paterson had both players covered and was in the lead with the possibility of eliminating two.
Paterson: Mash: McGrath:
Paterson’s tens held and he eliminated both players while taking the chip lead in the process.

The first bustout of the day was Lisa Teebagy. In September, Teebagy bested 158 entries in the WPTDeepStacks-Immokalee opener good for a $10,500 score. While her min-cash in Coconut Creek didn’t compare, it’s the latest in a decent string of successes for Teebagy.

Phil Hernz of Plantation, Florida, leads the action with a stack of 388,000. Other regulars still jockeying for a title are Jacquelyn Scott (330,500), Stu Paterson (249,000), John Depersio (187,000), Josh Beckley (147,000) and John Holley (99,000).
