Scott Montgomery attempts back-to-back $1,000 NL events

Tuesday, 29 June 2010

We recently reported that 2008 November Niner Scott Montgomery won his first WSOP bracelet by winning Event #36, one of the large-field $1,000 NL events. Now he is attempting to make it back-to-back final tables or wins in $1,000 events as he bagged up 151,000 to make him one of 33 players returning to Day 3.

Montgomery won over $3m for his final table appearance in the 2008 Main Event and over $300,000 for his Event #36 bracelet a few days ago. First place for this event is set at $485,971. Can he do it?

In the lead with less than four tables remaining is Manuel Davidian, who managed to secure himself almost 900,000 in chips. Jude Ainsworth, Andre Akkari, JJ Liu and Jeff Madsen couldn’t so well and hit the rail before the conclusion of Day 2.

The top five chip counts are as follows:

1. Manuel Davidian 889,000
2. Adam White 713,000
3. Jason Riesenberg 635,000
4. Owen Crowe 610,000
5. Justin Young 449,000
