"A few other well-known players with plenty of chips; Vanessa Selbst (350,400), Eugene Katchalov (330,900), Gavin Smith (279,100) and Daniel Negreanu (277,200)."

Nice! I wouldn't be surprised if one of those make it to the FT. All great players!

Never heard of Gaelle Baumann before, she seems solid!

Huge drop in numbers compared to previous years - WOW.

People don't have the money I guess - 10k is still a lot relatively speaking compared to salaries.

ME is such a crapshoot though - I read that Chris 'No longer Jesus' Ferguson calculated his EV after he had won the ME back in what, 2001?

He won the main event and had 6 million of chips at the FT, when he calculated his actual EV his chip count should have been 25,000 Shock

Shows how much luck is involved.

The larger the field, the more luck is involved Smile

But really poker is all about picking spots!

True but in the Ferguson example he survived quite a few flips and won several where he was going home if he lost with the worst hand and still stayed in - every good player knows this.
In such a massive field you need toc atch cards or you won't win, simple as that.

Things will only enter on its normal way on thrusday, that will give time for players like Vanessa Selbst and Daniel Negreanu to re-think strategies. Sometimes i found myself thinking if pro players like this really ever think about changing their way of playing or if they just decide what to do when on the table, according to the cards and the position they have. Some moves can be done by the book, but one needs to have something that distinguish the way he plays to get more chips than the others. Do you believe there are still some tricks used by pros that are still not in the books o ris it the way they apply them that makes the difference?

shaun deeb is owning aswell with 500k chips more or less.. i think he will go really far this year with a stack like that.

Very good player and i really appreciate to rail him at PS.. cheering for the 5 portuguese players left aswell that will play today at day 2C.

I think the event will only be televised in later stages not sure tho.

Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo has survived to play another day at the World Series of Poker main event tourney in Las Vegas.

Luongo finished his fifth level of play Tuesday night with 142,400 chips and was in 253rd place. Gaelle Baumann of France led with 505,800 chips. Luongo's brother, Fabio, stood in 130th place with 186,000 chips. Players began the tournament with 30,000 chips.

Luongo will resume play Thursday when the huge field is condensed into one group. Up until now, the field has been split into three groups — A, B and C.

On Tuesday, groups A and B — which at the beginning of the tournament totalled 2,044 players — were whittled down to fewer than 900 players.

Those survivors will join those left after Group C play on Wednesday.

Nearly 6,600 players are entered in the $10,000 buy-in tourney, which offers a prize pool of more than $62 million.

Luongo had his entry paid for by the B.C. Lottery Corp., which has him under contract to sponsor its Playnow.com gaming site..
