Manuel Camarero is the latest player to take the unwanted one-way trip from table to rail – getting the last of his chips in with ace-jack and departing even before the two players who called his shove had finished playing the river of the 2-4-3-2-7 board, sensing his ace-high wasn’t about to win at showdown. He can always prove us liars by buying a return ticket for the price of one entry fee. If not, side games or the alluring lights of the Prague nightlife await. It’s not all bad news.
It’s a different story for tablemate Fredrik Bergmann, who gave us an accurate count of 115,000 (thanks Fredrik 😉) which puts him very close to, if not at, the summit of the chip counts.
