When we got to the table Salman Behbehani pointed to McLean Karr and started telling us all about how he luckboxed his way into a 10,000 stack. Karr first lost all-in pre flop against the of Jamie Rosen after which he beat Mark Teltscher hitting a set of sixes against his queens. Later on Karr raised with to 200, and he ended up calling a three-bet to 700 from a player with a 4,000 chipstack. The flop brought out with two spades and one diamond. Karr check-raised all in and his opponent called with pocket tens. Karr rivered a nine giving him the best hand and a very big pot.

Unfortunately we didn't catch the action but Karr is one of the early front runners with 14,500 chips. Jamie Rosen is also doing very well early on. He managed to bust a player with versus giving him a very comfortable 10,700. Behbehani, who was doing most of the talking, has 2,100 chips and he's looking to double up soon.
