Event 1: Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues

$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 26: 20,000/40,000/5,000 Ante

The color blue is figuring prominently in Event 1.  With the blue 25k chips being a hot commodity, they’re the ones you want to see out in front of you as players slowly go by the wayside.

Jorge Gomez had two huge stacks of them in front of him.  But he just made a big laydown with a pair of tens against what turned out to be a flopped set of threes which he actually called out before his opponent showed the hand to the table.  He then dropped another hand costing him more of his hard-earned blue chips taking his stack from 2.5 million around 1.275 in a matter of minutes.

John Dollinger is taking another tact trying to attract the chips his way with a shirt very similarly colored to the 25k chips.   Dollinger is actually stacking his chips in piles of 28 because his 28th birthday is coming up on Friday.  With 2.35 million chips in front of him, he’s looking to turn his blues into a celebration when a champion in Event 1 is crowned.

Players are now on break with 49 left the 1k chips being colored up.
