WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star: Michael Baker Has a Big Lead

This image not as attractive as  Ashley Alexandra Dupré (aka Ashley Youmans)Only 36 remain at the WPT Bay 101 Shooting Star main event, and some guy named Michael Baker has jumped out to a huge chip lead.

Baker, who is from Boston and has a few tournament cashes, is stacked at 952,500. He's followed by some guy named Dan Morris, who has one tournament cash, with 701,000.

Other big names include but are certainly not limited to John Phan (495,000), Clonie Gowen, a woman (326,500), Brandon Cantu (225,000), Blair Hinkle (223,000), and Paul Wasicka (137,000).

The people that the WPT decided to play God with by anointing as so-called "shooting stars" aren't faring as well. Only five of them remain, including the spectacularly breasted J.C. Tran (183,500), Jennifer Harman (164,500), "Salty" Joe Hachem (100,000), Layne Flack (89,000), and last year's champ Ted Forrest (64,500).

And poker agent/paparazzi/Card Player TV host Rich Belsky is still alive with a respectable 154,000.
