Event 53: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Last Year's Champion Still Alive

Athanasios Polychronopoulos won this very event last year and has managed to outlast about 2,500 competitors again this year.

We caught up with Polychronopoulous looking down at a board of {2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{10-Spades}. His opponent checked and Polychronopoulous moved 3,375 into the middle. What he was not expecting was that his opponent would check-raise and it suddenly was 6,900 back to him. Polychronopoulous mucked his hand and the pot was awarded to his opponent.

Polychronopoulous is still healthy, however, sitting on a stack of 46,000.
