The PokerNews crew stumbled upon 2009 Aussie Millions Main Event sixth-place finisher Zach Gruneberg, who's currently seated on table 50, but at present, doesn't have any chips in front of him.
Gruneberg explained that as he was a late arrival, the WSOP rules state that he has to wait until the big blind comes around before he can receive his chips. No blinding away stacks here, it seems!
This may be Gruneberg's first trip to the World Series, but the young American already has a major title in this format of the game, having won the $1,000 Limit Hold'em Event at the 2009 Aussie Millions. We'll be sure to keep a close eye on him as the day progresses.
