What an amazing run so far for Scott Blumstein. Almost hard to put into words. Every poker player thinks about their “one time” – when the cards finally fall your way and you get that big score you’ve worked so hard for. All the hands, all the bad beats, all the river cards that should have never fallen against you- all of that wiped away with your “one time”. And it just so happens Scott’s is the Main Event.
He had 27% of the chips with 9 players left.
He had 49% of the chips with 7 players left.
And now he has 63%, nearly 2/3 of the chips when play resumes tonight, 3 handed.
Even if something goes terribly wrong, Scott is still guaranteed a pretty big pay day:
Hopefully he just runs as pure as he did yesterday:
There’s still a ton of poker to be played so it’s not exactly in the bag yet, but hopefully Scott closes it out and brings the bracelet home.
