Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Brad Garrett Is In The Building

• Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Brad Garrett goofing around on Day 2a

On our first lap around the room, we saw that there was some confusion at one of the tables as it seems a player's bag was missing from his seat. Anton Ionel (who came third at this years PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and second in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed at the 2011 WSOP) is missing his 200,000 or so chips that he comes into Day 3 with. It seems the floor is trying to sort it out in as timely a fashion as possible, and they made an announcement asking the players to be on the lookout for the bag. Funny man and former Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett, took this advantage to make his presence in the Pavilion Room known when he stood up and started screaming in some sort of accent, "I am Anton Ionel, where is my bag???" A floor person was walking by and Garrett grabbed a bag he was holding and began to breath deeply in and out of it, pretending like he was nauseous. Most of the room heard him and was turned to see the man in action.

We went over to check on Garrett to see how he started the day, and he has already turned over {a-}{a-} for the winning hand and gotten himself to around 65,000. He still has a lot of work to do to get some real chips to play with, but he should be an entertaining player to have around either way
