Chau Giang is trying to pay a player to keep quiet at his table. Even for an hour. Giang offered 2:1 on $5,000 for the gentleman not to say one word for an hour. He refused, saying he didn't think he could do it. Giang was flabbergasted, and stood up to talk to the adjacent table about it.
"He won't shut up," Giang said, looking at Eugene Katchalov and Barry Greenstein. "Not for ten thousand dollars. Ten dimes. One word."
The best part of watching a $10,000 event like this is all the tens of thousands of dollars that exchange hands away from the felt.
