Joe Gilbert Bags Chip Lead for Day 1B of #TheAbyss With Over 700 Big Blinds

The depth continued on the second day of The Abyss, a $360 buy in, $250,000 Guarantee No Limit Hold’em Event featuring the deepest stacks ever assembled. With 54 players headed to day 2 so far, the tournament still has an average chip stack of over 300 big blinds. Joe Gilbert bagged the biggest stack of the day with 141,800. Gilbert was the beneficiary of a late night pot when his KK got it all in against a short stack AA and another player with AK. The K on the flop eliminated 2 players, and also won Gilbert $360 for bagging the chip lead for the day.

Day 1c will run from 3pm to 11pm on Friday with registration open the entire time. The final day with an 8 hour level will be Saturday from 3pm to 11pm, and the last chance to see what all the hype is about will by Sunday afternoon from 12pm-2pm.
