Day 1C Players Remaining: 50
With the bags so close to those left in Day 1C, all pots become valuable and Mike Traylor (pictured) is doing his part to gain as many as possible. Traylor is seated in the far corner of the poker room and avoided the media hype thus far to chip up to 85,000.
Like many before him this week, Traylor made the trip up from Houston, TX to play this week. Ray Henson made Day 2 last night and Mina Greco is grinding her way through Day 1C, with Traylor now trying to make it a Texas trio in play for Sunday.
Traylor is a former tournament circuit grinder who has since moved on to other business interests but is proving he still has the chops that earned him $115,000 so far in his poker career.
