Tobin "Memphis" Banks approached us during the break and was only too happy to share his story. Naturally, we had to share his story with you.
Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee (hence the nickname), Banks has been living and working in Las Vegas for the last ten years. When he's not "directing traffic to websites", Banks can be found moonlighting on the $100/$200 cash game tables at the Bellagio.
It's also Banks' 42nd birthday tomorrow (in fact, it's less than half an hour away) and nothing would please him more than to get back to Day 2 of this event, but unfortunately he's in a bit of a bad patch right now, slipping back to 28,000 after losing another pot to an opponent.
In three-way action on a flop that read , a player in early position led out before the middle position player led out. Banks raised, forcing the early position player out of the way, but the middle position player called before check-calling Banks on both the turn of the and the river .
"You got it," Banks sighed, turning up , which was no good against his opponent's . Less than 180 players now remain in today's field.
