The early stages on the outer table have seen Artur Yarovoy dominate somewhat on the outer table. Short-handed, he is really piling on the aggression, three-betting liberally and generally making life a misery for his tablemates.
As a result, his stack has shot up to over 3 million, which will be close to, or possibly the chip lead at this stage. If he maintains this pressure, he will be a hard man to stop.
Here are the rest of the counts from the outer table:
Juraj Valasky – 1,900,000
Adem Marjanovic – 1,700,000
Marko Maher – 1,100,000
Ben Middleton – 1,000,000
