An Hour Into Play, Chris Richardson Hasn't Arrived Yet

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

A player at Table 59 has yet to arrive today -- Chris Richardson.

Richardson entered the day with 67,600 in chips, but his seat is empty and his chip bag has been torn open so he can post blinds and antes.

Since most of Richardson's chips are still in the chip bag, it's not possible to get a current chip count, but with 84 big blinds to start the day, it'll be a while before he is blinded out completely.

Chris Richardson  -  67,600  (84 bb)

Joe McKeehen Doubles Up

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

With several thousand chips in the pot and the board reading Aspade9spade4heart3diamond, the player in the small blind  checks, and Joe McKeehen bets 6,000 from late position. The other player in the hand thinks for quite a while and tries to eyeball McKeehen's stack. He asks the dealer for a count, and McKeehen informs him that the dealer is not allowed to offer an exact count.

Eventually, the player in the small blind moves all-in, having McKeehen covered. McKeehen calls for his last 31,600 with AclubAheart for top set. He is up against KclubQdiamond for king-high.

The turn brings the 3diamond and the river the 7spade, and McKeehen's set holds to give him the pot and the double up.

Joe McKeehen - 73,000
