Patriotism on Day 1C
Poker players, by definition, are individualists. They are paid to look out for only themselves. Yet, I've found, some players who hail from countries other than the United States carry a certain patriotism in their chip racks. Take, for instance, Scotsman Graeme Harrison, the PokerStars player with the most chips at the moment. He proudly wore a Scotland baseball cap all day yesterday. Today, I spotted an old friend by the pseudo-flag draped across his chair.
Today, Luca's playing at a corner table and is wearing his serious mask again.
In the back of the room, I found Anders "Donald" Berg and Mikael Westerlund, two men who have made quite a name for themselves on the other side of the Atlantic. Berg is a big-money player who competed for Team Norway in the PokerStars.com World Cup of Poker. Westerlund made final tables at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and the Scandinavian Open EPT event.

Eli, a one-time opponent in a super satellite for three seats to a big event. He was kind enough to bubble and hand me my seat. Here's to Eli having greater luck today.
