Coleem Chestnut is Looking to Become One of Brooklyn's Finest

Coleem Chestnut is a proud native of the New York City borough known as Brooklyn, birthplace of hip-hop luminaries like Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace and Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter. If Chestnut continues his torrid run here today, the BK just might have another hometown hero to call its own.

Chestnut has been the overwhelming chip leader throughout much of this Day 2, but a recent hand vaulted him far ahead of his closest competitors.

Chestnut opened for 150,000 holding {Q-}{Q-}, only to watch another player ship 2 million more into him for an all-in move. Running hotter than a Brooklyn sidewalk on a summer day, Chestnut easily made the call with his ladies, and he found himself out front once again facing {A-}{J-}.

A clean board ran out for Chestnut, and with the win he surged above the 6 million chip mark with just 60 players left between him and a $372,123 payday.

Biggie once said "Mo money, mo problems," and that may have proven true for the late legend, but Chestnut will cross that bridge when he gets there.
