He was soaring near 200,000 in chips before a series of unfortunate events led him short stacked. But, Sadou battled back and ended the day on 96,500.
Jacob Wojtuniecki (56,500) joined his brother Phillip Wojtuniecki (143,500) in advancing to Day 2, but their other brother Erik Wojtuniecki failed to make it through.
