Anxious to see how he does at DCC.

The chart shows 51 byes and 13 matches in the first round, for a total of 77 players. But 2 players have FF next to their names, so I imagine those were forfeits. Apparently Darren's hope was that everyone who was knocked out of the main event before the final 16 would play in the second-place event, but it looks like 26-28 chose not to. So the prize fund actually totaled $14,200 -- $4,000 for first, $2,000 for second, $1,000 for 3rd/4th, $650 for 5th/8th, and $450 for 9th/16th.

Stalev is not a pool player. He is Russian Pyramid player who just hobby pool sometimes.
He used to play in the U.S. quite a bit. Saw him play at DerbyCity in '07. Dude has a crazy powerful stroke due to his pyramid background. Quit pool to play poker but i've heard he's started playing again.

The article written about him says "Chinakov’s success on Tuesday represents the biggest win of the 23 year old’s career. Since he began his international career at the tender age of just 13 years old, the young Russian, a veritable pool prodigy since the very beginning, has been a fixture on the pro scene around the world"
