The T-Shirt, Part II


Remember yesterday's story about Jeff Day and his Full Tilt Poker t-shirt he won for knocking out Erick Lindgren online more than a few years ago, only to have Lindgren sit next to him yesterday in the Main Event?

Well, James Albion from Nanoose Bay, BC. - that's above Nanaimo on Vancouver Island for those who know their way around the Upper Pacific Northwest - happened to have his with him, wore it today and just made the final table of the $365 8-Max.

This is the third cash of the WSOP Circuit series for Albion.
