Table 338 just broke, its players scattering to find their assigned seats elsewhere in what is becoming an increasingly sparse Amazon Room. Erick Lindgren was quicker than most, rushing over to his new table and slipping into Seat 5 just in time to receive a hand and raise to 55,000 from under the gun.
A couple of players folded, then Aaron Ruppert arrived. He'd also been broken from Lindgren's same table, and as it turned out Lindgren had accidentally taken Ruppert's seat. Since there had been a couple of folds, the action stood, and after everyone else folded Lindgren took the small pot to move to 1.04 million.
"Push it there," said a grinning Lindgren to the dealer as he rose to move over to his assigned Seat 8.
