Pollack Playing Injured

[user101598] • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

On Tuesday, Ryan Pollack, a native of Atco, New Jersey, had back surgery resulting in a giant scar and a lot of soreness. Today, he is playing in the WSOP-C Main Event here at Caesars despite being in great pain. From time to time Pollack can't handle the pain so he ditches his chair and kneels on the ground with a pillow to protect his knees. Recently a floorperson offered to give him a dealer's chair, but his back would still hurt because its in the sitting position.

Neither kneeling nor sitting are detering Pollack - he's sitting with 35,000 chips.
