Table 8 seem to be having loads of fun at the moment – even Juris Persins, whom I just witnessed doubling with QT that rivered a ten against the pocket eights of Day 1a chip leader Tan Le, who is now occupying Max Silver’s former seat.
Persins’ chip count after the double up? 24k.
He did it again next hand, this time moving in to a raise from Steven MacLeod.
Persins: As 8d
MacLeod: Ad 4d
Board: 8c 9d Kd 5h Ah
Persins is now up to the heady heights of 50k or so, a sixth of the average stack with blinds at 3k/6k/6k.
