PNIA Main Event (Day 1B): No Easy Outs On Table 6

Level 3 (150/300/50)
Day 1B Entrants: 61
Total Entrants: 93

As more tables come together on Day 1B, we are starting to see a few less than desirable draws come into play. One of the players on Table 6 is a previous Rivers Main Event Champion while another makes his living grinding the highest stakes this room has to offer as both are seated together on Day 1B.

Connor Arlia earned his Rivers plaque this summer when he took down the Three Rivers Poker Challenge Main Event for a $17,000 score. Arlia has continued to take down scores since then including a $70,000 victory in Cleveland. The former Division I wide receiver knows how to steal pots with the best of them and certainly will not hesitate on fair catching punts on his way to potential back-to-back titles. 
Ricky Ali is among the most consistent cash players in Rivers but is taking what he hopes is three days off to play the PNIA Main Event. Ali has over $58,000 in tournament results that include a PPO victory in March worth almost $10,000. Ali notched a few smaller World Series of Poker scores this summer and will look to use his deepstack play experience in this main event structure.
