Hello Community! You guys have heard the term chip and a chair ? Well, this term was first used by Jack Stratus , a legend in poker , which has in its various strange stories related to poker life, as have died playing the game ... but back to the subject , this term became known when he won a WSOP Main Event when he was 1 record second day ... well , I'm not here to tell this story , well known throughout the poker community , I am here to ask if you have experienced something, or have seen a great event type ...
I never got anything significant when it comes to this , but I've seen a guy win a final table against 2 players TOP , one of the PS team member, when he was only a BB and was left only 3 hand to finish the tournament. . was in a BSOP High Holler event ... you know some case, or has happened to you in a big tournament ?
I won a MTT in the poker club of my city, there was about 120 players, and in the FT, remaining 7 players, I had only 2 BB. Big pockets came to me in a row, so I could rise from the ashes again and won the tournament.
Love the term chip and a chair. Its so true. I cant count how many times I have been down to less than a 100 chips. At this point, I am almost ready to throw in the towel. But a couple a hands with good cards I manage to come back and place in the 10.
Poker legend, Howard "Tahoe" Andrew who has the record of playing in the World Series to 41 straight years, has done it. He tells about the tournament he won after being down to one chip during a broadcast of the old "Ultimate Poker Challenge."
