Day 1a Done – Man with No Documented Evidence of His Existence is Chip Leader
Who is Tinten Olivier (at right, maybe)?
Here’s what we know: 1) he’s definitely a new member of the Davidson Matthew Club, 2) he’s reported to be the chip leader at the 2007 WSOP Main Event after Day 1a, stacked at 260,000.
But the information trail ends there. Tinten Olivier has lived a life that is mystery wrapped up in an enigma and cloaked in secrecy.
First, we did a "tinten olivier" search on google and yahoo. Nothing. Then we hit up the Poker Pages player database. Nothing. Then we did a similar search on the Hendon Mob. Nothing.
So we hit up a few sites to find out what the name "tinten" is all about, as we’d never heard of it before. We were shocked when the results came up with this.
Is Tinten Olivier completely fabricated? Is Tinten Olivier a myth, like Bigfoot, the Easter Bunny, and heterosexual AIDS?
We’ll get to the bottom of this.
Other Day 1a survivors include but are not limited to Brandon Adams (100k), Joe Beevers (96k), Barry Greenstein (91k), Brad Garrett (87k), Brock "tsoprano" Parker (86k), Jeff Madsen (80k), Irv Gotti (47k), Huck Seed (45k), Dustin Woolf (42k), and Crispin "Dont’ Call Me Bruce" Leyser (27k).
