120000 at Dinner Break

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Sep 17, '07

I have 119700 chips at the dinner break of day 2. 189 players remain which makes the average around 90000. I drew a bad table to start the day that had me in the 5 seat, bracelet winner Don Baruch in the 9, Kenna James in the 2, and the shortstacked Bill Gazes in the 4. I managed to get out of there with around 140000 when we broke 45 minutes into the fourth level of the day. I've been at my new table for half an hour. There are a ton of chips at the table. The chipleader is three to my left with 370000 chips, and the average at the table is something sick like 150000. There are more chips at ours than any other table without question. Danny Wong is two to my left, but all the other players are unknowns. I am looking forward to seeing one of the amateurs make a big mistake for all of their chips.
