Murphy First Over The Century Mark

Event 5
Level 10 (600/1,200/200)
Total Entries: 216
Players Remaining: 83
Chip Average: 40,000
Steven Murphy returns from break as the only player above the 100,000 chip mark here in Event 5.
Players are now back from their post-Level 9 break, which will also be the last break before the dinner break, set to begin after Level 13 near 6 PM.

While there are a few "bigger" stacks developing throughout the field, one player has set himself apart as Steven Murphy (Norwood, MA) looks to be the only player up and over the 100,000 chip mark.

Murphy, with close to $5,000 in tournament earnings to date, may not have the tournament resumes of some players we've been featuring through the first half of the Card Player Poker Tour, but after seeing Doug Lyford and Ching Poon make their biggest tournament scores in the opening two events of the series, we wouldn't be surprised to see another "unknown" player make a big score here in Event 5.

While we haven't seen Murphy play many big pots today, he's obviously been able to chip up well over the first few hours of play and will return with close to 80 big blinds, putting himself in a very good situation to make a push towards the money.

Speaking of the money, the official payouts will most likely not be produced until the dinner break, but "unofficially" between 18-27 players should be finishing "in the money" here in Event 5, with that official structure being posted as soon as it's finalized.
