Chip Average: 70,500
If we're going to post a Day 1 hand history, you might as well make it a fun one. Well, the "Gardy Party" arrived in Level 11 and RunGood lead ambassador Justin Gardenhire (pictured) busted an opponent to boost his stack over 75,000.
The lojack limped in and Gardenhire lifted it to 5,500 from one seat over. His opponent called and the flop came out J♦9♠2♠. As the lojack thought over his decision, Gardenhire pumped-fake throwing chips in the middle to potentially call an all-in.
Indeed, those 9,500 chips the lojack had behind went in and Gardenhire called right away with K♣K♦. The A♥2♥ of the lojack was far behind and the remaining board bricked out.
With less than two levels in the night, Gardenhire is chipping up as a spot in Day 2 nears having his name on it.
