Vinnie Vinh’s Chair Finishes 22nd in the $2,500 Short-Handed Event at the 2007 WSOP

Wsopchair_2Due to prior commitments that likely involved foaming at the mouth and delusions of insects crawling on his skin, Vinnie Vinh was unable to make Day 2 of Event 30 yesterday at the 2007 WSOP.

But his chair was there in his place, starting the day with 73,800 in chips with 42 players remaining. Saddled with a tight table image and unable to really get anything going throughout the day, Vinh’s chair still managed to outlast 20 other players to finish 22nd, good enough for a cash of $12,468.

This is Vinh’s chair’s second cash in the 2007 WSOP (it finished 20th in Event 8), establishing a new WSOP record for a chair in a non-chair-only event.
