Curry's Chipping Up Despite Tough Table Draw

Event 1 (Day 2)
Level 19 (3,000/6,000/1,000)
Total Entries: 332
Players Remaining: 26
Chip Average: 185,000
Malik Curry came into Day 2 sandwiched between two big stacks and is now a "big" stack of his own with over 350,000 chips heading into the first break of the day. 
When the seating assignments were published this morning, Malik Curry (Everton, MA) was in a less than ideal spot, as he was sandwiched between chip leaders Doug Lyford and Jeff Butts.

While most players would have taken a backseat and perhaps waited for the table to break to assert themselves, Curry has attacked the challenge on the big stacks at his table since play began and it has worked for him so far, as he is currently playing just over 350,000, nearly doubling the stack he entered Day 2 with.

Curry hasn't registered a live rated score since August, but he's in the money here in Event 1 of the Card Player Poker Tour, a series that he enjoyed success in last year as he Final Tabled two events making just over $20,000 during the week long series.

Table 3, where Curry, Lyford and Butts are stationed, is also home to Foxwoods legend Ralph Macri and Stephanie Hubbard, as well as Giacomo D'Agostino, all players sitting with over 200,000, meaning that this table is "stacked" and we could see some fireworks throughout the next level as players will look to assert themselves as the "table captain".

There are just under 10 minutes remaining in Level 20, after which there will be a 15 minute break where we will update you on the players that have cashed in Event 1 so far and update some of the "notable" chip counts.
