Event #45: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em kicked off on Monday, and Florida's Brayden Fritzshall bagged the chip lead at the end of Day 1, having run his 7,500 starting stack up to 194,700.
Fritzshall is having quite the 2015 so far, already hitting huge scores both live and online. In March, he was part of a chop of the 9th Anniversary Sunday Million on PokerStars, banking just under $600,000 when he took first for the remaining prize money after the deal. Less than two weeks later, he got third in the $1,200 Battle at the Beach in his home town of Pompano Beach for $61,333. A bracelet would be the ultimate topper to his career year.
The tournament drew 1,655 and 260 made it through. Among them: Andrey Pateychuk (128,800), Eric Baldwin (105,900), Barry Hutter (93,800), Jason Koon (84,200), Faraz Jaka (76,900), and German high roller Fabian Quoss (58,300).
Day 2 of the tournament is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday.
