Annette Obrestad, A Woman, Leads Day 1B of 2010 PCA Main Event

Greek babe Natali Thanou, a woman, was not among the Day 1B chip leader.

Another 846 entered Day 1B of the 2010 PCA Main Event, bringing the total field to 1,515. This breaks last year’s record of 1,347 and should produce well over a $3M first place prize.

At the end of Day 1B play, Annette Obrestad, a woman, was chip leader, stacked at 147,000. Some other notable big stacks include but are certainly not limited to Paul Wasicka (116,300), Phil Ivey (115,000), Vanessa Rousso, a woman (110,000), Robert Mizrachi (108,000), and Liz Lieu, a woman (85,000).
