spent a good part of Thursday as the chip leader and will
enter the final table 2nd in chips behind Andy Seth. Seat 1 - Hassan Habib - 455,000
Seat 2 - Phil Hellmuth - 1,433,000

Seat 4 - Matt Keikoan - 371,000
Seat 5 - McLean Karr - 111,200
Seat 6 - Daniel O'Brien, 1,129,000
Personally, I am rooting for Phil.

online, I am convinced that the prior statements are indeed
true as I think I have officially moved into bizarro world.
