He may not be all smiles in the photo, but Allan Fernando took off on a poker version of Mr Toad's Wild Ride for the last 3 levels of Day 1B. Sitting at about 35,000 with 22 remaining, Fernando bagged a massive 558,500 stack to bring the day to a close.
He even was part of a double-knockout at the end, AA > JJ on a 8-high board, so only 11 players join the Sunday Day 2 crowd.
Here are the 11 moving on, with chipcounts.
|Allan||Fernando||Elk Grove, CA||558,500|
|Steve||Saklad||Walnut Creek, CA||125,000|
|Andrey||Rakhmanin||Citrus Heights, CA||80,000|
|Yolanda||MacDonald||Grass Valley, CA||20,000|
