Channing Chipping Up

[user80015]
Neil Channing is slowly grinding away at Michael Hauptman, currently taking his once huge disadvantage to a near equal equation.

Not too many huge hands have been shown down, but rather Channing has been talking his way up the chip leaderboard taking down pot after pot after pot.
