Richard Sklar, who is on fire here with over 75,000 in chips, understands it is rather cold in the Amazon Room.
In fact, compared to what he feels is an always warm poker room at Bellagio down the street, he says it's freezing. Ted Forrest agreed with Sklar that it's cold, even below the 70 degrees Tournament Director Jack Effel says they set the thermostats to.
But Forrest, who also plays at Bellagio regularly, says there's no way it's 20 degrees cooler here in Amazon and was considering a 1000-1 bet. Sklar was offering on the difference in temperature, until Effel told both he wasn't exactly going to bring a thermostat over to let them check.
