Mike Biemesderfer (Mt. Union, PA) is here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa playing this tournament on his 35th birthday. He braved the lousy weather and took time away from his job as a quality control inspector to be here.
And of course he's wearing his Steelers jersey. "If I win this, I'm going to the Super Bowl....so I'm going to the Super Bowl." Those are some pretty strong words, but he's on the right track. He's currently got over 200k sitting in front of him. Now he just has to make it through today, then come back tomorrow and collect the remaining 32 million chips in play.
