Adam White, Day 2 Level 17

Adam White came in with 370k and now has ~680k after busting Eric Rivkin. Rivkin had opened from middle position and received a flat call from Travis Greenawalt and Aaron Mermelstein. With the opportunity to squeeze, White re-raised from the big blind allowing Rivkin to get in the middle with his 30 big blinds. The other two players folded out and it was revealed that White would be taking Tx8x against Rivkin’s QxQx… however, the board made White two pair and brought no help to Rivkin’s Queens and he was eliminated.

White now has over 100 big blinds and is a threat to continue building a stack with Paul Spitzberg to his immediate right with over 400k still. White has been on a bit of a tear already this year with ten cashes and three 5-digit scores. In total, White has $961k in career earnings and could move into the Millionaire’s Club with a deep run over the next two days.
