The seat formerly occupied by Freddy Deeb is empty, but Deeb's monster chip stack is still there. Deeb has been gone for about 45 minutes now, letting his chips very slowly blind away. He still had 132,500 in chips when we walked by, so the two-time bracelet winner is in no danger of being blinded out of the tournament. In fact, with a stack that large, he could probably stay away for the rest of the night and still be competitive on Day 2. We'll keep an eye out for Deeb to see if he returns.
