Friedman's Fantastic Climb

So, you start Day 2 103 players from the money, and you are 172/178 with 15BB. What are you ... honestly, what odds are you giving yourself of making a deep run?

Jay Friedman - the 2016 HPT Vicksburg, MS Champ - found himself in the aforementioned position to start today in the $2500 HPT Championship Event.

Fast forward to today's dinner break, 6 hours later, and Friedman in 2nd in chips with 530,000.

I asked Friedman what his secret was to today's 2,830-percent climb in chips .. and he jsut said "It doesn't mean anything until you get in the money."
