One HORSE Down

And it’s not Tom Schneider! According to my keen eyesight and chip counting ability, he has a “decent looking stack of chips.”

James Pickering is the first casualty of the $50K event. After being crippled by Frenchman David Benyamine (yes, Benjo, we realize he’s French!) in the stud round, Michael Mizrachi took Pickering out in the hold’em round. That’s $50,000 down the tubes. That’s five main event buy-ins down the tubes. That’s more than an annual income for many people…down the tubes.
