By her own account, Nancy Birnbaum was down to 3,000 chips, but that didn’t deter her. She stuck it out, spun her stack up and now sits on holdings of more than 100,000. The Fort Lauderdale pro is the chip leader with the field sitting at right around 40 players remaining.

Her tablemates are doing their best to combat her, though. Birnbaum is a member of the Blue Shark Optics team, and as such, has a signature pair of sunglasses with the company — a pair two players at Birnbaum’s table just so happen to be wearing.
