Michael LavingtonMichael Lavington (Bradenton, FL) is the chip leader with about 70k.  His accent gives away the fact that he’s not local.  He’s originally from England, but has lived here for 40 years.  “It never goes away, the accent” he said.

Michael had made a final table in each of the last two Open poker series here at the Hard Rock Tampa, (both were in Seniors events) but is still looking for his first win.

Only 27 players remain from the 97 that started the day.  Average stack is 36k.
