Mike Madera - 475,000
The biggest stack in the room belongs to Mike Madera (New York, NY). Wasn't too long ago this kid was a major shortie then seemed to be on the right side of every coin-flip.
"I ran hotter than God for the past hour" said Madera.
The ball got rolling when Mike was down to 45,000 then tripled up when his AQ held against A4 and AJ.
Mike, who works as a college recruiter in NY realizes that being the chip leader this early doesn't always mean a lot. Only time will tell.
