We had just arrived at a table with a 3 way all in and chips
Joe Lawluszki was all in, Player x called and previous to that Rick Rossi had made a bet of more than 90 % of his stack leaving just some brown chips behind.
When the cards were turned over Joe had Pocket 8’s Rick Rossi had J J with the Jack of diamonds, and player x had A 7 of spades.. Player X wished to not be named in the blog however we do know who he is lol.
Joe flopped a set of 8s however it got more interesting as the diamonds were coming.
There was also an A on the flop however with the set out there player x was drawing pretty thin.
one of the top chip stacks in the room with over 100 K
Billy Pappas has around 103 K and seems to be leading by a small margin.
From our blogging area we heard ” All in ” and then a second “All in.”
By the time we got to the table a player who had just gotten knocked out was already leaving and we could not get his name for the Blog.
Sean Thomson had AJ and the other player had AK and the rest is history as the J hit the flop and Sean scored a nice pot and eliminated the other player from play. A few hands later we witnessed Sean scoop another nice pot.
Sean Thomson who just this weekend won $20,000 and took 1st place at Foxwoods Mini Series $400 event seems to be on a confidence roll.
Sean has over 49 k in live tournament earnings now and looking to capture the trophy and go back to back 1st places.
Robert Kalinowski 206,000. Robert has over $19,000 in live cashes.

I spoke to Sherwin Agard (The Chip Taker) briefly at the beginning of level 9 who had just returned from his car after busting in level 8.
He was surprised when he came back in that he could not re-enter due to him missing the deadline of the end of level 8.
Ross Santos still hovering around 90 k
David Grandieri who has over 400 k in live tournament earnings has over 60k TODAY and is always a threat to go deep.
David has 57 rated cashes since 2011.
