Lichtenstein becomes the first player to hit the 400k mark at the midway point in Level 14. He is sitting with former chip-leader Aditya Sharma at one of the more action packed tables in the room which will not break until deep into Level 15.
Datashvili is up to ~350k and has also moved into an excellent position heading into the final level. He has just one score on his tournament resume as he gets his young career going this year. Datashvili finished 11th in the Grand Poker Series earning $13,416 in the $570 buy-in event in Vegas.
