Slow & Steady

$2000 + $200 Championship Event
(Day 2)

Donk Chips on the Left, 300k on the Right

After verbally jousting with Ahmed Fahmy (Long Island, NY) during Day 1B, Mike Melkersen (New Market, VA) flew under the radar with his chip count and emerged as the chip leader heading into Day 2.

Now, after a slow start, Melkersen's back on top with 430k, but no major hands to speak of, "slow and steady," he says.

In an interesting chip management move, Melkerson has his stack divided in to two piles "This is 300 thousand," he says while pointing to the stack on his left, then while referring to the other pile of chips, "this is what I'm going to gamble with, once that's gone I'll have to tighten up."

Level 13 (1,200/2,400/300 ante) continues.
