With the way this tournament is structured, quickly accumulated an above average stack is key (well...it is in any tournament). The blind to chip average ratio is definitely different that a non "turbo" event, and our two chip leaders have put themselves in good spots.
The only two players in the room currently over 200,000 are Sean Hu (New York, NY) and Jeff Bicer (Ashburn, VA).
There are currently 48 players remaining from the original 258 entrants. The chip average among those players sits at 135,000.
