From Dan Michalski, who is on the scene in Vegas:
Josh Evans from Dallas is the chip leader with about 200 players left in the main event. He’s guaranteed $50k, and is looking to work toward $8.25 million over the weekend. Also, he was one of the guys arrested in the violent Jackie’s raid. His mom was one of the ladies who had a machine gun in her face. A bunch of Dallas poker people are on a plane headed to Vegas now to root him on.
