Nick Petrangelo put nearly three starting stacks in the end-of-day bag to finish at the Day 1 chip leader of Super High Roller Bowl VIII. With 887,000 in chips, Petrangelo is the top dog leading the field of 12 remaining players into Day 2, and he’ll be looking to better his second-place finish from a year ago to win the $2,760,000 first-place prize.
Petrangelo is trailed closest by Andrew Lichtenberger, who placed third in this event the year prior. Daniel Negreanu, the player who finished ahead of both Petrangelo and Lichtenberger to win Super High Roller Bowl VII, is also among the final 12 players moving on to Day 2.
