Nicholas Immekus started the day second in chips and we caught up with him as he was bagging up that stack at the end of play yesterday to find out how he did. He told us that he hadn’t been involved in any huge pots but had steadily chipped up throughout the day it. “People were folding when I wanted them to, calling when I wanted them to.”
Immekus had been moved around a lot of tables throughout the day and said he had generally found it a pretty easy day. This is the fourth event he has played so far at the series — all the no-limit hold 'em tournaments — but this is the first one he has cashed. Immekus plays on PokerStars and Full Tilt under the screen name “Frenzuh.”
In one of the first hands of the day Eric Rappaport opened for 2,500 from the small blind and Immekus defended his big blind. They saw a flop of . Rappaport continued for 2,500 again and Immekus peeled the chips off for a call. The turn card saw a bet of 6,500 from Rappaport and Immekus gave it up. It could be a tougher table today for him.
