Montel Williams Is Not the Day 1b Chip Leader

Even a rollercoaster would’ve seen Montel Williams‘ Day 1b WSOP ride and said, "Fuck this. I’m getting off."

The talk show host, who is holding a charity event tonight at the Golden Nugget, saw his stack rise and fall in big swings repeatedly. After being one of the first players to build his stack past 150k, Montel ended Day 1b play back where he started, just a hair above 20k.

The chip leader at the end of play was Dag Martin Mikkelsen at 236k. Unlike Tinten Olivier, Mikkelsen actually existed before the 2007 WSOP. The Norwegian has two cashes across the pond.

Big stack pros of note include David "The Dragon" Pham* (140k), Scotty Nguyen (129k), Berry Johnston (118.5k), Cliff Josephy (117k), James Van Alstyne (91k), and Robert Mizrachi (80k).
