The heads up battle between Jeremy Halaska and Stan Fudor has been methodical with small pots taking up the majority of the action. Halaska started the match with a narrow chip advantage and has stretched that edge more than double what Fudor is playing. Fudor is now sitting with 1,500,000 while Halaska is nearing the 3,400,000 mark. With Level 25 only halfway completed, Fudor has plenty of time to regain ground before the blinds go up yet again.
It will be interesting to see if Halaska starts to put more pressure on Fudor with each pot becoming more valuable. If Fudor can chip up or possibly find a double, the complexion of the PNIA Main Event finale could change on a dime. The Rivers Poker Room will continue to bring the action as we approach a new PPO Plaque being engraved.
