Best name of the main event…

…and he’s even a ‘Bama boy, hailing from Birmingham.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present Zelong Dong.

He started the day with 119,200 in chips and by PokerNews’ latest count is at 160K.

Longest name award likely goes to Constantinos Economopoulos from New York. I think he may be Greek.

    I may have to introduce myself to Zelong Dong. 😉

    Economopoulos is a stand up comedian whose girlfriend is the pregnant Caroline Rhea. How do I know this? Because he came up to me and asked if he could do some shameless self promotion.

    Zelong Dong is the funniest name ever, I’m sure it’s not his real name. It just can’t be.

    There was a player who qualified thru PokerStars that had the name Strong Wang, maybe Jen could try him if Zelong’s unavailable.

    Pretty deep. Good think Lorenna Bobbit isn’t in the field. If he got his nuts cracked by her that would be a bad beat.
