@JCTran23 and @FossilMan side-by-side at HPT $2500 Championships Day 1A puts $20,045,404 in career earnings in the firs two seats over at Table 10.
There was some friendly Twitter-Banter between the two earlier in the week, and we'll let them tell their stories in 140 or fewer characters.
On the contrary, I'm assuming you'll add many buyins so I can win a larger first prize! :-)#bringlotsofcash https://t.co/wvFI05CIRd— Greg Raymer (@FossilMan) October 20, 2016
