Even a rollercoaster would’ve seen
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.
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).
* Not a real dragon.
