Table six, just in front of the blogging team is producing all sorts of white-knuckle poker action. PokerStars sponsored player, Terrence Chan and Team PokerStars Pro, Joe Hachem have been eliminated there, their conqueror on both occasions, the enigmatic Daisy ‘Chain’ Wain.
Another member of Team PokerStars Pro, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier was recently just placed in seat four, eliciting a friendly jibe from PokerStars Sponsored player Emad Tahtouh: “I was wondering where my chips were going to come from, before you turned up ElkY …” Grospellier just smiled at him.
Soon afterwards, the player who had been seated in Hachem’s former pew, found himself with pocket jacks in the hole, and looking down at a board of Jx-8x-6x-8x-5x.
All his chips went in on the river, with what appeared to be the immortal nuts. However, Charles Chua, calmly flipped over pocket eights, for the second set of quad eights today, and a cry of “sick!” in unison from the players gathered around to watch the hand.
