Event #4: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Rise of the Big Stacks

YorkshirePud • Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante

During our last wonder around the vast, surprisingly warm Brasilia Room, we spotted two big stacks that weren't anywhere near as large before the dinner break.

One belongs to Bulgarian Nikolay Yosifov who now has a mountain of chips totalling 29,000. Yosifov has one major cash to his name, a win in a $165 buy-in tournament here in Las Vegas in January.

The other belongs to the establish pro that is David Peters. With over $3.8 million in online winnings and over $4.1 million in from the live arena, David Peters is one of the most respected and feared players on the circuit. Now that he has 28,000 chips at his disposal he is going to be a nightmare to play against.
