Larry Samet may not be a household name when it comes to poker, but he could be if he continues to accumulate chips at the rate he has done over the first five levels of the Millionaire Maker.
While on our rounds to find hands of interest, Samet's stack caught our eye, we counted it and found it contained chips worth 49,000.
"Have you been involved in many big hands or are you just running well?" we asked Samet.
"I'm running reeeaaarrrly well," came the reply.
Samet's stack puts him in the top 10 chip counts overall including those who have finished Day 1a, which puts him in a great position for a deep run here in Event #8.
