Event 6: Earning his Miles - NFL Star Receiver still grinding!!
$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)
Level 10 Blinds: 500/1000/ 100 ante
I'm sure he'd rather be playing in the NFL Conference Championships tomorrow, but Dallas Cowboys starting wide receiver Miles Austin is having fun and hanging in there in today's $1k buy-in here at the Borgata Winter Poker Open. He is sitting on 34k in chips, good for 34 Big Blinds as we return from break.
Here are some other notable chip counts:
Chris Shumate (Indiana) - 230k
Mike Dentale (Brooklyn, NY) - 175k
Mark "Dipthrong" Herm (Royersford, PA) - ~36k
Average chip count is 48,442. 61 remain, vying for the $57k first place prize.
