J.C. Tran’s rack…of chips…is growing and growing at the WPT North American Poker Championship.
Day 2 has just gotten underway at the WPT North American Poker Championship, which ironically is still being held in Canada. As of post time, 246 of the 454 starting field remain.
Lee Markholt-Watkinson, aka the Tyler Durden to Lee Watkinson‘s Ed Norton, is sitting with the big stack at 198,000. Maybe Watkinson is busy with Hardcore Elegance and couldn’t make it or something, so he unleashed his alter-Markholt-ego. Really, we’ll never know. This
Markholt-Watkinson is closely followed by November NineTM hostage Darus Suharto, who we totally forgot was even a captive, with 193,000. Seriously we’d have a better chance naming Iranian hostage crisis members than November NineTM hostages right now.
NN = Chino Rheem. Dennis Phillips. Errr. IHC = Michael Metrinko? Richard Queen? Mike Eruzione? It’s close.
Other big named to somewhat recognizably named big stacks include the spectacularly-breasted J.C. Tran (above, 159,300), Erik Cajelais (109,800), Pat Pezzin (107,500), Matt Matros (106,900), Vivek Rajkumar (99,600), Mike McDonald (87,000), Joe Sebok (84,700), Barry Greenstein (81,300), Vanessa Rousso (72,100), and Erik Seidel (71,800).
