Over on Table 443, there is an empty seat and a rack of chips where Artur Koren is supposed to be sitting. Koren's original table — 374 — was the second to break today, and the staff moved his chips across the room into the Purple Section, where they have been siphoned slowly.
Unfortunately for the Austrian, his starting table isn't the only thing that has been broken today.
According to friend and would-be tablemate Kevin MacPhee, Koren was skateboarding over to the Rio for the start of Day 2a from Palms Place when he was struck by a car. He was taken to the hospital where he had his arm placed in a cast, and he has been texting MacPhee for updates on his stack.
"It's got to be broken," MacPhee said, showing us pictures of his arm on his phone.
Koren began the day with 68,850 chips, and by our count he's down to around 63,000. We wish the Austrian a speedy recovery as his stack slowly dwindles.
