Things are always techincally...interesting...here at PokerNews and we've run in to a bit of a glitch with our chip count page. It's quite greedy, and doesn't seem to want to give any player more than 8,388,607 in chips (as we noticed when we tried to give Oppenheim his 9.1 million). Rest assured, it's being repaired and in the meantime we'll post the counts straight into the blog.
