Things will be less mediatic with Daniel Negreanu out of the race, but i'm sure they will keep interesting.

hmm lots of well known players among them, cheers this tournament should be lots of fun with those big names. Hope Daniel wins it or at least make the final table and continue to cement his legend in the poker world. Cheers keep the news coming, I am following all day long when the news pop up!
Giorgio Medici, Hai Tran, David Forster, Bryan Campanello, Mukul Pahuja, David Chiu. I have no idea who these people are. Daniel Negreanu, Mike Sexton, Todd Brunson, Tony Dunst, Jay Farber, John Juanda, Phil Laak, Mike Matusow, Scotty Nguyen, Noah Schwartz, Erik Seidel, Jennifer Tilly, JC Tran, Phil Hellmuth. Now these people - these people who the friggin way could end up going home after day one? (Okay Jennifer Tilly shouldnt count, based on the plays I see from her - but the rest? Times taking its toll among old players)
