The final starting day of the 2017 Winter Super Stack $1,500 Main Event has come to an end and Ronnie Dattani led the 24 survivors headed to Day 2.
Sunday was the last chance for players to join the field and 100 entries were added to the tally by the time registration closed for the last time in this event at Deerfoot Inn & Casino. That puts the total at 250 and the prize pool at $332,500, easily surpassing the $250,000 guarantee.
While the snow continued to cover Calgary, players hit the tables while enjoying the Super Bowl on the big screen and 100 entries were reduced to 24 that will continue on to Monday’s Day 2. Ronnie Dattani had the best day, bagging 350,000 chips. Francis Fan had the next-best stack with 230,800, followed by Sunny Lubana with 196,400.
