Lyford Near The Top After Dinner

Event 1 (Day 1)
Level 11 (500/1,000/100)
Total Entries: 332
Players Remaining: 92
Chip Average: 72,000
Doug Lyford (Hallowell, ME) might have started today as an "unknown" quantity, but he now sits with one of the bigger stacks in the room, as there are less than 100 players remaining in Event 1. 
It's been the same frantic pace coming back from dinner that we saw heading to the break, as the outer tables continue to consolidate as we are now under the 100 player mark.

Peter Senon continues to lead this $100,000 GTD Event 1 tournament, but Chris Tybra has stumbled slightly while still sitting with a top ten stack mid-way through Level 11.

The player to replace Tybra near the top of the leaderboard looks to be Doug Lyford (Hallowell, ME) who has chipped up well through the first few orbits of this level, using his big stack and some aggressive pre-flop play to move himself near the 140,000 mark despite having a tough table draw with some top Foxwoods "regulars".

Lyford might not have the tournament pedigree that some of the previously mentioned players such as Tybra, Nick Palma and Chris Leong have, but we could be seeing a breakthrough score in the making here from the young "amateur", as he seems to be bossing his table to move up the Event 1 leaderboard.

We've just received the finalized payouts for Event 1 and those will be posted as soon as possible as just over 30% of this remaining field will be "in the money".
