Dario Minieri is the current chip leader with close to double as many chips as 2nd place. Dario is a young online pro.
Hevad “RaiNKhAN” Khan is currently in 4th. RaiNKhAN is also an online pro. He multi-tables 24 tables at a time on PokerStars.
A lot of the players at Stars complained that RaiNKhAN was a robot or a team of players and that nobody can play so many tables simultaneously. Stars investigated Khan and he ended up sending in a video of him playing 24 tables to prove that he wasn’t breaking any rules and playing by himself. This man is truly remarkable. You can watch the video on YouTube.
Hevad is lucky to still be in the event after he went allin preflop with his pocket queens up against pocket aces. Hevad flopped quad queens and doubled up.
Sorel “Imper1um” Mizzi, considered the best online tournament player in the world and winner of 2 FTOPS events is also still in the tournament with an average chip stack.
Of the pros, Gus Hansen is currently very near the top and has been playing very well.
