    None of the three mid-Day-1 chip leaders cashed in the $2500 Limit 6-Max. Ray Henson, Fabrice Soulier, and I are all out. #pfa48

    $5k Final Table kinship? @RonnieBardah and I had very similar stacks for most of the $2500 event, busted within 15 min of each other. #pfa48

    The beats and coolers at the end were too much to overcome.

    They include:

    QT on button running into William Jensen's 77 on the BB on a Q73 flop.

    Three-betting UTG raise with JJ, flop coming JT9, putting in a lot of action on the flop, seeing the awful 8 hit the turn, having the guy start firing out again, calling, and bricking the river. (I actually folded, convinced he had it.)

    Raising AA into Maria Ho's A5, flop coming 764, and turn 8.

    Running my QT suited into AA on the big blind, which just called postflop. J8x flop (he check raised), Q turn, blank river (I called both).

    Running my KK into Maria's AA in a 4-way, 5-bet preflop pot. Board ran out J high, I check-called after she raised the flop.

    All of the above happened within a short period of time, and I got smacked out. The blinds were high and my stack was never big today, and only winning a few moderate hands in between the above kept me alive for a little longer.

    Danny Le, chipleader after both Day 1 and 2, is a longtime fish at Commerce, playing a very wild, aggressive style that makes you love or hate him at your table, depending upon both your position and cards.

    I first encountered him at Commerce in 2003, where I had my worst 40-80 session of my life, dropping $5k. He was to my direct left. Since then, I have tried very hard to get position on him. I played with him again in 2012, when he said he "recognized" me but wasn't sure I was the same guy. I told him it was because I got older and had a beard, but he bluntly told me that it was because I gained weight that he didn't immediately recognize who I was. This was actually part of the reason I decided in January to lose weight. Le himself had also gained a little weight (though not as much as me), and had also improved his game, but was still prone to playing wild and very loose depending on his mood.

    I can see how Danny Le could accumulate a mountain of chips in a tournament if he runs super-well, as he plays a lot of hands, chases, and in general is very aggro. However, this is bad strategy once it gets down to the end, as you're more likely than not to chunk everything off while everyone is playing very tight.

    Danny Warchol, who is currently virtually tied in chips with Le, was the bubble boy at the 2013 $5k event. I knocked him out. He was partially to blame for his own bubbling, as he got REALLY drunk during the event, and his play predictably went downhill. He actually predicted his own bubbling (calling himself "Michael Buble") when there were about 23 people left (18 cashed), despite having chips at the time. I hope for his sake that he isn't doing the same for this event. I actually hope he does well here, as he was a nice kid.

    Maria Ho caught fire pretty much after beating me with that A5 vs AA hand, continued to smack people down at the table, busting Andrew Yip, who came in with a ton of chips in Day 2, before the money. She is still in the event, but isn't high in chips and needs some luck to make the final table.

    As predicted, Danny Le has chunked it off, and has finally doubled up to just 95,000.

    Maria Ho is now 2nd in chips. Marco Johnson, famous for being the victim of POTRIPPER's 10-high river call which broke open the AP scandal, is the clear chip leader right now.
