On to Day 2 of Bellagio 5000 as Chipleader...16 players left

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Apr 15, '08

Good day at Bellagio today. I am chipleader with 209000 in chips going into play tomorrow. Sixteen players remain, and the field is ridiculously tough. Go to for complete chip counts because I'm too tired and lazy to post. There are only two players that I don't know of the 15 other guys. Remarkably, both Binger brothers are still in the tournament. The biggest hand of the night for me came at the very end of the night. Paul "ComeOnPhish" Liu and I got all-in for his 65000ish chips with my QTcc against his Jd9h on AJ9 with one club. The turn was the 4 of clubs. I rivered the 8s. My current 8 handed table has Nick Binger in the 1, Erik Cajelais in the 2, Hevad "Rainkhan" Khan in the 3, James Hoeppner in the 4, Corwin "vitalmyth" Cole in the 5, me in the 6, Noah Jefferson in the 7 and Lee Watkinson in the 8. James "" Mackey is probably the best tournament player left in the field, so I was lucky that he drew the other table when we got down to 18. Interestingly, mig and I were both at final table of the 100r on Stars last night where he and I took 3rd and 4th respectively. Also, Danny Wong is still in and will record an impressive 4th cash of the series with this cash. He is at the other table as well. Erick Lindgren, Bruno Fitoussi, and Mike Binger are also at the other table. It'll be a fun day, but it will be tough against all of these great players. First place is 337000 dollars
