Carmen Collecting Chips
Carmen Traina (Bayonne, NJ via Cicily) found out just in time that there's an end of night bonus of $3,000 for the chip leader. Why? Because he has more than 400k.
"I didn't know until ten minutes ago," says Traina, who appears to be the chip leader on the last break of the night.
"I just keep knocking them out," when a player asks how he got all his chips, "If it was a bounty, I'd have a lot of money. A lot of money.
Former chip leader Paul Spitzberg (Tenafly, NJ) has dropped into the 250k-300k range where a lot of players are licking their chops at the chance of the top prize or the $2,000 that goes to second place.
~300 players remain with an average stack of 102k (25 bb) as blinds are now 2k/4k/400 ante.
