Whether or not you agree with the Global Poker Index (GPI) ranking system if you are perched in 12th place then it's a good bet you are pretty good at poker. That is the spot that Tom Marchese is sat in at the moment and he started the day with 19,050 chips, except he hasn't really started at all because he hasn't shown up.
Has he decided to fly home early and leave his small stack behind? Is he fast asleep in his hotel room? Has he had a night of Hangover proportions and is currently stuck in a lift somewhere minus a finger? Does he think he is Phil Hellmuth?
Who knows and who cares but I needed to write something before the break!
