Thats insane, the field must have lost a tonne of players yesterday.

But holy cow at having that big a chip lead in the biggest MTT event ever in terms of payout - incredible.

Don't know what the blinds are but it looks like anyone has a shot at the title depending on the cards.

Big one for Antonio Asfandiari because i seen the pre intervieuw and he told that this was a big gamble for him the 1.000.000 buy in. He said that sometimes you need to take a big gamble with your BR like he was little he put 3 K in a tourney what was 1/3 of his BR ,he did good there and never looked back from that. So he probaly will at least double his BR if he wins this 1
I hope he does ....he always seems nice and relax

If he not wins i hope Hellmuth wins yet another...

I don't think that Antonio is trying to gamble there, I'm sure this huge buy in is only less than 20% of this whole bankroll IMO but indeed he'll be ranked first on all time money won in history of poker if he takes this down...

Brian Rast had been holding very well during the first day and, although he isn’t actually leading, he is in the middle rank of the field, which turns him into one of the best well classified to win this. He can assume a passive position by now, waiting for good hands, watching lower stakes attacking the biggest ones and the leaders shaking not to lose their supremacy. It’s an advantage to be in the middle, but it’s also important to know how to deal with it, and once he already was leading, he’s got to have fresh head to keep doing good.

Yeah Fakiry.

I mean this is wide open really - being chip leader is never a bad thing but they tend not to win leading up to the FT. But Antonio is the leader with 8 left but Trickett is not far behind at all, so they are both big favourites to take this down.

Trickett has had an immense year and Esfandiari is playing high stakes which suits him a great deal.

I don't think Hellmuth will win - maybe top 4 but I don't think he can cope with players like Antonio.

I think Antonio is the type of guy that can adapt to any situation, format, stack, player ect. Blink And I don't think he's gonna risk too many chips without something good at this point. He has so many chips right now, he doesn't need to play the big stack bully. This'll be a really nice final table, they're all good players.

I hope Guy Laliberté will win, cause if he does then he will have more money to donate to charities Big Smile

interesting to see laliberte still in this one- so many big names are already gone- i think antonio will take things more slowly from now, he is the type of player imho who waits for good opportunities and rarely bluffs, so a top 3 probably is on the cards for him, hellmouth- not sure he blows hot and cold

You want the guy who already thinks he's the greatest ever to win the biggest event ever???

I respect his acheivements but i hope he doesn't - he has 12 bracelets and a rack of money.

The action was pretty sick if you ask me, i watched some hands...

Also i must say that i was a bit dissapointed by some pro players that took part but i sure they know better what they did wrong.

Insane is the right word. What a buy in but what a pot of cash to win at the end. Imagine being first out!!!!! Doesnt bear thinking about. Its bad enough with a modest buy in. What another world!!

If, like you say, an earlier chipleader tend not to win when getting to the final table - and we just have to look at older tourney’s history to see that is in fact true - you are agreeing with me that is not always a good position to take. You become a target. People will not always try to attack, but they will try to only play a hand in which you are involved when they have a good hand not depending too much of what the table can bring. But in this case we are talking about experienced pros who will not fall into simple traps.
Btw, I went to wsop.com to try to watch some live action from this and the only thing I found was the presentation video, which talks about this event as the biggest one and its fruits will take a year to implement. Do you think there’s any chance of the winner of this event to make a special announce that he will donate his prize to the cause, instead of keeping it for himself? Somehow, this idea came to my mind after hearing the initial speech. Maybe this is coming to my mind also because of what Iniesta did (chosen as the best player of the Euro’2012, in which we all tried our luck at the mob bet game): he donate the €300K he won from UEFA to help a Spanish city that was recently affected by an earthquake (it will not solve everything, not even close, but it’s a “drop”, like this poker event is supposed to be).
