Still Anybody's Game

Although the stack sizes might indicate that DeMichele and Lingren are playing for 2nd place, that's far from the case. Both have had all their chips in the middle on more than one occasion in the last couple of days and have made epic comebacks and with the limits where they are, a good or bad run of cards could be ideal or a disaster for any one of these players.
