Patrick Poirier just entered the Amazon Room, taking his seat at Table 360. Before he could even un-bag his chips, he opened to 5,200 in early position. A player in middle position called, and another player on the button shoved for 32,600. Poirier reached into his plastic bag, and pulled out enough orange T5,000 chips to call. The other player folded, and the hands were tabled.
Poirier had his opponent crushed, and held as the board ran . Poirier is now up to around 770,000 chips - we'll have a more accurate count when he actually gets them on the table.
