Vinnie Vinh Still Alive, Has Non-Chair Cash at Five Diamond
If we did shit like have polls for "Best Story of the Year," we’d be willing to bet that Vinnie Vinh’s chair cashing twice at the 2007 WSOP would win that award, along with "Funniest Story of the Year," and "Best Story Involving Crack-Cocaine of the Year," which would slightly edge out any story about Elix Powers if there were any.
So we were very, very happy to see Vinnie Vinh not "account selling" to his chair and actually cashing in his own right at the Bellagio Five-Diamond Classic early this morning.
Vinh finished 15th in Event #7, banking $6,770. Also cashing include Ryan Daut, "Miami" John Cernuto, Joe Sebok, and Men Nguyen. The final table is today, and includes chip leader Roy Winston, Dan Alspach, Jared Hamby, and Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi.
