We just spotted Uri Gilboa in the field.
The exuberant Israeli finished 4th in the 2015 Battle of Malta and had the loudest rail we’ve ever encountered during one of our tournaments.
This year he’s at it again, running up a big stack here on Day 1B and aiming for the stars.
Gilboa just took out his fellow countryman Yair Zakod when both were all-in preflop. Gilboa had A-K against Zakod’s K-Q.
The board fell ten-high and now Gilboa is up to 185k chips – enough to have a good chance to make it through the day.
With more than 70 Israeli players in the field alone today, we’re pretty sure he’d have another huge rail should he make another deep run.
