Kevin Shoffler, Day 1A Level 13

Shoffler comes into the home stretch with 320k, good enough for a spot in the Top 5. He has ~$11k in tournament earnings but has not cashed an event since 2007. If he holds on to find a bag, he will be in prime position to notch at least a cash on Day 2, and potentially a deep run if things go his way.

Johannes “Bones” Stell, Day 1A Level 13

Bones came into Level 13 with 310k and an excellent seat among the field. He has two very aggressive and familiar faces to his immediate right as Greg Fishberg and Kevin Grabel occupy those seats. He immediately took advantage of that spot by winning a sizeable pot off of Grabel to improve his stack to ~370k.
