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..

Nice to see the stars getting in the mix with poker and doing well. It addds a bit of celebrity interest to the crowd and maube draws a few extra fans who may not otherwose have followed poker but will because of the star goalie!!
