At the self-proclaimed "most entertaining table in the room," we caught up with a player currently in ownership of a stack equaling more than 40,000.
Anthony Vidmer was holding court over his castle of chips and laughing along with his fellow players. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the banter and when we asked for Vidmer's chip count, his tablemates made sure that we knew exactly how he earned those chips.
"Make sure you tell the world he got all that money with pocket fours... twice!" said the player in the next seat, while Vidmer tried in vain to get an accurate chip count for us. We asked Vidmer if this tale was true and he simply pointed to the back of his customized #44 football jersey, telling us "Yep. Flopped a set both times too!"
His jersey already adorned with his last name, Anthony Vidmer can now say that it features his favorite poker hand as well.
