Day 1c of Event #19: THE GIANT, a $365 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament, is in the books. Todd Louer bagged the biggest stack of the day with 730,000.

Tommy Zhu (502,000) climbed the leaderboard when he knocked out three people, including Jeff Gross, on the final hand of play with pocket sevens. Gross was a short stack after working his stack up to 100,000 and then leaving it to continue in the Pot-Limit Omaha Eight or Better tournament that started earlier today.

Niall Farrell (559,000) and Dietrich Fast (377,000) both bagged and they seemed to put a lot of stock into Ismael Bojang’s thoughts that this was the “drinking tournament.”

Bojang, Todd Brunson, Ylon Schwartz, James Woods, Joe McKeehen, and Ryan Riess are just some of the players that fired and missed on bagging a stack today.

Valentin Vornicu currently holds the biggest starting flight stack with 869,500.

Day 1d is on June 30 and Day 1e is on July 7. Those are the last two shots to try and catch Vornicu and earn a spot in Day 2 of THE GIANT.
