Sammy Farha Has a Lot of Chips

Header12003 WSOP Main Event runner-up Sammy Farha must have been saying his trademark* phrase "raisy daisy" a lot during Day 1B of the WPT World Poker Championship. The logical next sentence here would be explaining how he ended up as Day 1B chip leader stacked at 210,700 and then make some snarky joke about how someone that people call the "Humphrey Bogart of Poker" shouldn't be allowed to say "raisy daisy" because could you imagine Bogart, or his modern day equivalent, Clooney, ever saying "raisy daisy" but it's early, we're tired, and we can't think of a creative, snarky way to put that put-down for you.

Other big stacks after Day 1B include, but are not limited to, the playing-much-better-of-late-which-is-good-since-he's-stuck-a-lot-of-money Mike "the Mouth" Matusow (162,575), Tim Phan (157,000), David Benyamine (135,900), Patrik Antonius (119,600), Paul Wasicka (116,725), Freddy Deeb (115,250), Carlos Mortensen (115,125), Isabelle Mercier, a woman (110,500), Gavin Griffin (102,900), John Phan (101,675), Kathy Liebert, a woman, (100,325), and Johnny Chan (95,600).

Still alive are Doyle Brunson (79,050) and Daniel Negreanu (64,200), who keeps his shot open to win WPT POY honors. Negreanu is the only player who can keep the spectacularly breasted J.C. Tran from winning, as WCP fave Joe Pelton has busted out.
