Jean-Robert Bellande Giving Debt Collectors A Sweat

Leads At WPT with only 21 left, $1.16m up top.

Everyone’s favorite poker player-turned-Survivor, Jean-Robert Bellande isn’t , for once, broke.

In fact, when it comes to the World Poker Tour Five Diamond World Poker Classic, JRB is sitting in the chip lead with only 21 runners left.

Well into the money, fans and haters alike have turned their attention to see if one of poker’s lovable losers can turn the tide and pull out a big victory. The tournament boasts a $1.16 million for first place prize but, according to JRB himself, the most he can hope for is just under $300k, which will be just enough to just get him out of makeup, as he’s only got 25% of himself in this one.

JRB must have been excited about his chip lead too because rather than sleeping he was retweeting some gems, soaked in sarcasm, into the wee hours of the morning Las Vegas time.

Will JRB make the televised Final Table? Play resumes at 12:00pm PST with Live Updates available from the World Poker Tour Live Update website.
